Hello all :)

I was just wondering how did you write your resignation letter? I need some help here! I have to resign in a few days' time and I'm just terrified whether to do it or not!!!! I wish I could keep my job. How do you feel about leaving your job that you've known for so long? I have only worked for 2 years but it's the job that I've had all my life, my first real job! I'm totally terrified to leave it and I worry that I can't find a job in the US. I'm working as an engineer in the oil and gas industry.... I wish someone could just tell me what to do!! Heh.... anyways, anyone to share their resignation letters? That would be great help :)

Thank you!

Leaving your job is definitely hard.... I was at mine for 8 years and became close friends with many people there. I don't still have my resignation letter, but my boss knew for a long time I was moving to the US. I just stated in my letter that I was resigning due to relocation to the USA for marriage, and thanked them for the opportunities they gave me, etc. Good luck!!

Even if you had a negative experience, avoid burning any bridges, in writing or in person. When you are hunt-jobbing in the U.S., you will almost certainly need a positive reference from your previous employer(s).

06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

I loved my job as well and really wished there was some way to bring it with me. My employer knew that I would be leaving eventually - I had let him know up front what was involved - and when I had the visa in hand I wrote my letter saying that it was with great regret I was resigning and that nothing less than moving to be with the man I loved would have led to my resignation. I gave 6 weeks notice (so they would be able to interview and find a replacement and I could be involved in some of the initial training as well). I told him how much I enjoyed working for him, how much respect and admiration I had for him, and thanked him for his confidence and support in me, then wished him every success in the future. I also said that I would be available by phone if he or my replacement had any questions after I left with which I could help and not to hesitate to contact me.

He and his wife actually have stopped by to visit me here when they have been travelling on their way to Florida and we have a standing invitation of a place to stay if my husband and I ever visit.

“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”
