Long story short I am leaving my job here at JP Morgan at the end of May.

I've got a new oppurtunity working at Credit Suisse.

However, I have been trying to write a goodbye email and everything I write doesn't seem up to stuff.

My problem is I have made some very fine friendships here. No matter what I write, it doesn't reflect my gratitude.

Any pointers?

Write something pithy and heartfelt. Then write what you really want to write as a PS, like "So long, chodes, may you each swallow a bee", and set the text color for that passage to white

Let momocide type a goodbye letter for you, on behalf of Occupy!
PS: Also, don't read the letter. Just ask her to make fifty copies of it in fifty envelopes. And then hand those out.







Okay, serious answer:

1. Write something individualized to each person and thank them for what they meant!
2. Stay in touch after leaving. You know how people leave a company and thank you for being awesome and then you never hear from them ever again? Be the opposite!

Write a letter to the company and personalized emails to the few, brave and proud that you've grown attached to. And then send dick pics to your former boss.

Couple jerk-jerk-blaaaaaaast motions at the co-workers you didn't like on your way out. Peace sign over the shoulder, no looking back.

This, pretty much! Blanket emails never really do the job on an individual basis. Get custom with those who have made a difference to you and leave the general "farewell" email to the rest.

And yes, keep in touch, even if it's only now and again. It's just nice.

So before I wrote this thread I had already started talking to people individually about my leaving and just being fortunate enough to get another job.

I wanted to thank everyone for their 2 cents. I also wanted to say something akin to "Peace out bitches" but I didn't have the heart too. Instead I scoured the net and stumbled upon this gem which worked pretty well.
