Resignation, Firing & Termination Questions

What are the tips To resign from an construction employer?

Once you've accepted the offer with your new construction employer and set the start date, obviously the next step is to let your current construction employer know you'll be leaving. Write a brief letter of resignation i.e., the operative word there is brief. If you feel a need out of loyalty or guilt to write anything more than a few short sentences, curb it. The only information your letter needs to contain are the following two (possibly three) items: that you are leaving your current construction employer, what your last date of employment will be, and if you feel comfortable adding a sentence or two about how you enjoyed working for your current construction employer, and you appreciate the opportunity to have been a part of the construction employer.
