Sample 1: Last Working day in XYZ Inc.

I would like to bid you all farewell as today would be my last day at XYZ Inc. XYZ  being my first company holds a special place for me. I am grateful to have interacted with so many talented people and also got a chance to make some very good friends here who I would cherish for the rest of my life.

I would especially like to thank Saksham for his constant support and guidance.I do believe this world is a small place and our paths will cross again. Needless to say, please stay in touch.

Till then, Adieu !!!Best Wishes,

<Your name>

Sample 2: Startup Internship to Adieu

 I don’t know luck wants it or God, but yes its time and i m leaving quite early. It is just like an internship getting over for me, with a lot of learning which i achieved here. It was a great journey in these two and half months with you all. I was happy to join an early stage startup and  we are growing EXPONENTIALLY which we wanted always. No one will want to leave this startup at this stage, instead anyone will feel honored to join at this stage. I am confident that we will be a big Brand in some days , no matter i will be there in team or not from now, i hope my earlier works will always contribute to the team in every way. Will be in touch always, but will not be able to contribute as a part time also from now onwards, as I want to give my heart and soul to my MBA program.

At last i want to thank my seniors for helping me always  and to my senior colleagues to make me feel a important part of the organization by offering equity options too, but its time. I hope my resignation will never create a void in the team and you will find a replacement soon. Really sorry for that blank bench in the shared office , but don’t worry I will refer another intern.

And nevertheless I still dream of joining you again after my 2 years of Post graduation MBA program, if possible(bcoz i strongly feel that this startup will be a Famous startup till then and will need me less at that time).

Forgive me for if i have hurt you ever by mistake, will respect you all always and forever for all you have done for me. 

Thanks and Regards

Your Early stage employee 🙂

Thanks you very much!!
It was a hard decision to make but time to explore new opportunities; take new risks; back to startup life 🙂
Feel free to contact me anytime. Hope our paths will cross again.

Sample 4: I am gonna leave you

Friends and colleagues at E-CLONING,

Having been part of XYZ Inc. and the E-CLONING team over the past 4.5  years has been very gratifying, but time has come for me to say goodbye and best of luck to all of you, as June 1st will be my last day at XYZ Inc.. It’s been quite an amazing journey and a rich learning experience, but what I treasure the most are the colleagues I met and the friendships I made while at XYZ Inc., which will certainly endure.

 When I embarked on the Cloning concept with another colleague of mine more than 10 years ago, I could have never imagined how rewarding (but also humbling) our journey would be.  And it was so thanks to our customers, partners but first and foremost, thanks to you and those from the Cloning team who have moved on to other endeavors. Your dedication and contributions over the years helped us establish and grow what was effectively a new market in the cloning world. To all of you, I want to say “Thank you from the heart”  for your great work that led to accelerating progress in our industry and making life a little bit easier for millions of people around the world.

Now, with the Cloning team been an integral part of E-CLONING, I am sure that even greater achievements are ahead of you.  I always believed that migrating the session and subscriber-related features of body parts to the Cloud Cloning platform and expanding them to include service chaining would position Cloud-Cloning as a unique control and provisioning point in our customers’ quest toward cloudifying their requirements.  I’m thrilled that Ben has made this a focal point and I have no doubt that it will pay big dividends in the near future.

E-CLONING is the crown jewel of XYZ Inc., Cloud Cloning is on a roll, and both are direct results of its leader. It’s been a pleasure and a privilege getting to know and work for Ben in the past few years.  I never met a leader who cares so deeply for his people and is so effective at navigating the (internal and external) challenges  to foster growth and success for his team.  You couldn’t hope for a better leader as you forge ahead in the world of software-defined cloning!

I will certainly miss everything about been part of this amazing team, but mostly the people of Cloning and E-CLONING, though I trust we will stay in touch.  My mobile number will remain the same and my personal email is joblagao@gmail.com

Thank you to all of you for 10+ years of extraordinary achievements, experiences, friendships and lessons that made my professional and personal life so incredibly fulfilling.

<Your Name>
