Career Change Resignation Letter Sample, Email and Example/Format



The Head of Department

Marketing Department,

Sigma Enterprises Ltd.,


Dear Sir,

I am working as a marketing manager in your company for the past one and half years. Recently I happened to work in the customer service department for a period of 15 days. I find my skill set matches with the requirements of the customer service department rather than marketing department. In this juncture I would like to inform you that I want to resign from the post of marketing manager.

For job satisfaction, one has to work in the field which is close to the heart. To utilize my skills in a better way, I request you to transfer me to the customer service department. This seems to be a better option for me.

Looking forward to hear from you,

Thanking you,


Yours Sincerely,

There are many instances in life, when a change, brings in a breath of fresh air. Monotony sets in, as one goes about the same routine daily. Thus, a change at workplace may help to lighten and rejuvenate the lifestyle. As job satisfaction can help to increase a person’s productivity, it can also increase a person’s sense of wellbeing. When you are willing to change your career you should inform your employer about it with the specific reason. 

Ref: Resignation Letter

Dear Mr. Woodland,

I have been working as a Senior Tester in your company for the past 1 year. At this juncture I feel that my skills don’t match this profile. 15 days back I was given the opportunity to work in the Developing Department and while working there I found that the developing department holds more opportunity for my career and I can use my skills to the utmost in that department. Besides I would like to work in a more creative field.

Hence, I would like to resign from the post of Senior Tester. As I feel that the present job is holding no satisfaction for me I am here by submitting my resignation from the post of Senior Tester. I feel that this would be a better option for me. I request you to kindly accept my resignation and kindly transfer me to the developing department permanently.

Thanking You,



Sue Johnson
