Resigning as an Inside Sales Representative

Generally, inside sales teams have a reputation for high turnover.  Inside sales reps can have a short shelf life before they get enough experience to be considered for a sales role with more accountability or perhaps a client facing role.  With the internet being available everywhere and at your fingertips through smart phones, it still surprises me when an inside sales representative resigns without a resignation letter or 2 weeks notice.  It’s not difficult to Google resignation letter templates.  A resignation letter can be as basic as 2 lines.  I am resigning.  My last day is X.  It is respectful to give 2 weeks notice but not always necessary.  The moral of the story is, don’t forget your manners when you decide to resign from your current position.
