Sample Answer:

Dear Mr. Jill,

Please accept this official resignation letter from the Sales Manager post in your company, effective from February, 2016.

I never thought I would ever leave such a great organization like ABC, when the opportunity appeared to further my career in marketing as a sales manager, which has always been an aim, I simply thought that a promising opportunity for me career.  As I am going to work at Square Consumer Limiter, I want to apply all the skills I have honed from ABC, particularly how to build camaraderie in an organization to meet its goal. Anyway, I will be given a branch office in Brisbane and my key responsibility will be exploring a new market.

I hope and pray for ABC to be successful in every step. Finally, I appreciate all your professional and personal advice in my years of service with your company. It would be great if we will stay in touch as I open the new horizon in my life.

I am still proud to be a member of your company and will remember the great time and learning opportunities I had here.

Sincerely yours,
Nicholas Arnold
