Prepare this letter before you see your employer to tell them you are leaving your job. Print it out and sign it with a pen.  If you cannot print it it out, copy it by hand and sign it.

Hand the letter to your employer after you tell them that you have decided to leave your job. Make sure you give at least two weeks’ notice.
