Dear Mr. Ross,
Please accept this letter as my formal resignation from XYZ Magazine as editorial assistant. My last day of employment will be February 3. I plan to return to graduate school to pursue my interest in English Literature.
I would like to thank you for all the great opportunities you have given me as an employee at XYZ Magazine. I have learned so much about the magazine industry from working with my fellow employees and supervisors. I know the writing skills I have developed while working at your company will be extremely useful at graduate school.
Please let me know if you need any assistance with the transition. Again, thank you so much for an excellent two years with XYZ Magazine.
