    Farewell Email to Employee or Intern

    Dear _______________,

    It has been the greatest pleasure having you work as an intern here at _______________. Thank you for all the new business you’ve brought us over the past year. Although I still wish you would consider our offer to hire you after you finish college in June, I completely honor your decision to make a career change. I know what a heart-wrenching decision you had to make when your mother asked you to run your family’s French bakery that’s been a successful business for more than two generations. Kudos to you for following your gut instinct and switching career paths. But I want you to know that if you ever need a job in the future, I’m leaving the door open for you. You’re a bright young woman. Good luck with your newest endeavor!

    Best wishes,

    (YOUR NAME HERE)
