How to write the dreaded resignation letter

 

CRINGE! You’ve decided to accept the job offer of your dreams, the contract is signed and sealed and the only thing left to do is write a resignation letter to make it all official. It’s hard to know what to say and what tone this important letter should take – here’s few tips on what to know to write a note that leaves your current (nearly ex) employer feeling comforted, complimented and happy to say good bye.

  • State the facts. In this sort of situation, that can be stressful, it’s easy to forget to put the key details in, for example your last day of work according to your notice / employment contract.
  • Should you give a reason? It depends. If you’re leaving for a positive reason, perhaps relocation or further education, there’s no harm in adding this to the letter. If, more than likely, the reasons aren’t positive, it’s probably worth keeping it to yourself.
  • Keep it brief. Don’t make it War and Peace – your employer won’t enjoy pages and pages of potentially emotional details on why you’re leaving!
  • Offer to help. It might be appropriate to offer help during any transition period, and by doing so you won’t burn your bridges.
  • Don’t go mad! If the reasons for your departure have caused anger or pain, don’t let it show. Remember it’s highly likely that your current employer will be asked to give reference for you so keep it buttoned!

England are OUT!

Probably one of the most heartbreaking moments of this World Cup, England leave without a shred of dignity.

Some celebrities try to distance themselves from the disaster team that is England:

 

Some try to make sense of it (by probably wrongly blaming Italy):

 

Some just try to limit the collateral damage:

 

That Luis Suarez Bite

FS1 particularly enjoyed how brands got a “bite” of the action, with these cheeky Twitter ads

McDonald’s Uruguay made a personal plea, advising Suarez to take a bite out of a Big Mac next time:

 

Cinamon Toast Crunch made a desperate plea to stop copycat attacks:

The one where Brazil lost…Big Time.

In the biggest ever defeat in World Cup history, Twitter went mad. Here’s a few of the best:

 

This one almost brings a tear to your eye:

 

This was obviously too good an opportunity to miss for the Twittersphere:

 

With the final looming on Sunday, we can’t wait to see what these clever Tweeters will create next!
