Farewell Letter Template

Dear FirstName,

Use the first paragraph of your farewell letter to let you co-worker know that you are leaving the company. It's fine to tell them where you are going and what you will be doing. However, don't mention anything negative about your present employer or why you are moving on.

In the second paragraph, thank your co-worker for all the support they have provided you. Mention that you have enjoyed working with them and you'll miss them, even though it is time for you to move on.

The third paragraph should let your contact know where they can reach you. Include your personal email address and phone number.

In the last paragraph, reiterate your thanks.

Yours truly,

Your FirstName
