This letter of resignation is pretty darn short at only three lines, I know. Saying you’re leaving, giving notice, and offering “Thanks” does not require pages of copy. Promise.

    this is a big help, but what if we have decided to leave for negative reasons in the company? What do I do if i need to get things off my chest to my boss so that she knows exactly why I’m leaving?

    if you want to get something off your chest, send an “intent of resignation letter”, means send an email to your boss explain why you hate your job and what do you want to make it better, you have the intention of resigning any ways, so its a win-win situation, if your boss replies with a positive response, then you got what you want, and if he reply in a negative way (happened to me), then at least you got it off your chest, and you can proceed with a resignation letter :).
