Short Notice 短期通知辭職信

When the opportunity knocks on your door, it is seldom possible to reject just because of the absence of a sufficient notice period. These desperate times call for desperate measures when you need to type a short notice resignation letter, in case you are not serving the standard one month (or two months).

當機會來臨,往往是措手不及。任職獵頭公司期間,見過無數例子是新公司等不及求職者,要求對方提早履新,這時候除了記得簽訂合約保障自己之外(以免辭職後新公司反口),你還需要一封Short Notice短期通知的辭職信,以下有一些例子供你參考,希望能幫助大家。

Sample 1

Dear (Recipient’s name),

Please accept this letter as notice of my resignation from the role of (Sales Manager) at (Office Daily company).

Although my employment contract currently states that a notice period of (one month) is required, I would like to request that this be reduced to (two weeks), therefore, completing my current employment on (1 May 2020 – Your last day).

I hope that we can come to an agreement, and I apologize sincerely for any inconvenience my short notice may cause you or my fellow coworkers. I will ensure that I do everything possible to finalize current projects, and provide a handover of all work to colleagues.

Despite the short notice of leave, I really appreciate all the great experience and opportunities given to me whilst working at (Office Daily company) I have loved being part of the team, and I am extremely grateful for being given the opportunity to work for you. If there is anything more I can do to ensure that the transition of workflow is as smooth as possible, please do let me know.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

(Your Name)

Sample 1註解:特別注意notice period因人而異,此sample以one month作例子,如你的合約訂定離職需兩個月或三個月通知,緊記因應自己合約而填寫;reduced to (two weeks)亦是範例,請因應你需提前多少離開而填寫,例如你只需提早一星期走,此處填one week便可以。

Sample 2

Dear (Recipient’s name),

This letter is to notify you that I would no longer be able to fulfill my duties as a (Sales Manager) at (Office Daily company), effective from (1 May 2020 – Your last day). I have gotten an opportunity at one of my preferred companies, and they need me to start immediately. 

I hope you would accept the resignation in lieu of the bright proposition which lies for me in my next organization. I have had a wonderful time at this company, and thankful for the exposure the management has provided in developing my professional coding skills.

Let me know if I can be of any assistance to the replacement employee on the post. I would give my best to speed her up to date with the procedures. I have included my contact information below as well. 

Please do the needful.

Sincerely

(Your name)

Sample 2註解:你應該能看得出這封short notice辭職信比起sample 1更急促,甚至可以理解為要立即走,故此在最後三段的用字及語氣會天有禮貌,並展示出在最短時間內願意提供最大協助。

Sample 3

Dear (Recipient’s name),

This is to notify you that I would like to resign from my position as (Sales Manager) effective immediately from (tomorrow). I apologize for the disruption caused by my resignation. However, I have made my partner up-to-date with the developments, and she will be able to help my replacement to catch up.

I have nothing but great memories in your organization, and it would help me in my journey in more ways than a few. Thank you for your continued support of my abilities. I hope you understand my situation and accept my letter of resignation.

If possible, kindly mail me my final pay-check to the above-stated address. 

Sincerely

(Your name)

Sample 3註解:同樣是一封非常急促的辭職信,範例中以 (tomorrow)作例子,請因應你的情況而更改字眼。

Sample 4

Dear (Recipient’s name),

Please accept this letter as my official resignation effective (20 May 2020). If I were able, I would have provided you with at least a (two-week notice), however, I accepted a job offer for a position that begins immediately. I hope you accept my apologies for such short notice.

Thank you for providing me with this opportunity and helping me to develop new leadership strategies.

Please let me know if I can make this transition easier. I have started to compile notes on important projects I am not able to complete before my departure.

Sincerely,

(Your Name)

Sample 5Personal reasons
