This is the first time I resign from a job. I am thinking a lot about how to quit the best way possible. I am quitting on good terms, so I want to leave a positive impression.
The following is the hierarchy in my company:
- Development Head
- Department Head
- Team leader
The team leader is just the technical leader, who tells me what to do, but can't sign holidays, can't give me a raise and doesn't know what I earn. The Department Head is responsible for those things, and he is the one who I consider my boss.
The Development Head has the right to sign contracts with new employees, hence he was the one who signed my contract. For several projects I report directly to him. I would call him "boss'-boss" when speaking with friends.
Before I started I had two interviews, one with each the Development Head and the Department Head. There is also HR.
To whom should I address my letter of resignation?
I can think of two options: Only Department Head or both Development Head and Department Head. I would also send a copy of the letter to HR.
