Moving on

Here is a copy of the e-mail I sent to my manager, medicine Mark, this morning:


After much thought and consideration, I am writing to inform you of my decision to resign from my position at [company name] effective Friday August 11, 2006. I have been offered, and intend to accept, a position with [company name], a software company in Salt Lake.

I intend to take my scheduled vacation from July 24-28, and then work my final two weeks from July 31 through August 11 such that I can wrap-up as much as possible on my remaining projects.

Mark, I want to thank you for the opportunities you’ve given me [here]. It has been a wonderful ride, and I appreciate the confidence you’ve shown me as I came into my first full-time job out of college. I have learned so much from you and from this organization. I appreciate your support, example, and help in teaching me as I’ve worked in this position. Nothing short of a perfect professional opportunity could have lured me away from this team; however, this opportunity is too good to pass up. As we discussed this morning, this isn’t simply a matter of “more money”, but it is a chance for me to stretch my wings a bit and learn more about the trade in a way that I wouldn’t be able to do [here].

Thanks again for your support.

  1. Wowsers! Moving on to bigger and better things, eh? I’d be really curious to know more about this new job you’re taking, if you’d be willing to email me about it. It sounds like it is a great opportunity, and I’m happy to hear it!

    Hope everything is going great in other areas as well.
