When you must leave a position under duress or stress, keep your explanation short, honest and positive. Never write a resignation letter when you’re angry. Remember the adage: “Don’t burn bridges.” The goal is to state any serious conflict calmly, rationally and gracefully. Despite your differences, you may need a reference from this employer in the future.
