Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing in regards to my decision to leave the job as the software engineer with your company.

It was really great working with you and the opportunities that you have provided me, I can’t stop being grateful for them. The first day of office still flashes back and it is only by looking back I realize the amazing connection, moments and time that I had here.

However, I have got selected for an internship in Fox India as a travel journalist. This has been a dream assignment for me as writing is the place where my heart is and combined with travel, I couldn’t have asked for anything better.

Although there is my dream waiting for me, leaving the company that has helped me grow both professionally and personally is very tough for me and I would miss the people here.

Please accept this letter as notification that I am leaving my position on September 15.

Yours sincerely,
