Dear (Recipient Name):

After considerable thought and introspection, I have finally decided to resign from my position as sales manager at Omega Corp. I must tell you it was not an easy decision to make.

My reason for quitting is that I need a temporary break from employment. I have applied to a business school to earn an MBA in marketing. Because it is a full-time program, I will not be able to come to work. I intend to start my own business after I earn my degree. As you probably know, starting my own marketing business has always been my long term goal.

I suggest an effective date of April 20 as my last day of employment. If, however, you feel that you will need more time to find a replacement, I am willing to extend that date by two or three weeks.

I really enjoyed my time here and I value the experience and training I have received at Omega Corp. I am confident that the skills I learned from you will be very useful to me when I start my own business.

I wish you all the best.
