It's your last day and you have one more final impression to make - the farewell email.
If you're not able to say goodbye individually to people you've interacted with at work, a mass email blast will show people that you did at least spare them one thought in your last moments at work!
Unlike in your Out-Of-Office reply.
Scroll down for short and sharp farewell emails and responses to announce your goodbye to the whole office.
Subject: Goodbye to Me
To everyone that knows me,
It will be my last day at the company this Friday, and at 5:30pm I can be located on the (insert club) deck.
Thanks for the good times, it's been a gas.
Feel free to laugh at me for going to WhatsitsCompany, otherwise you can buy me a shandy.
Subject: Good Riddance to Jane Whatshername
Just a short one to say goodbye. I will be at the bar after work, if you want to come celebrate my escape.
Hope to see you all somewhere out there. My personal e-mail for us to keep in touch: JaneWhatshername@Whatsits.com.
Subject: Keep in Touch!
It is my last day after a wonderful 3 years with WhatsitsCompany. I would like to sincerely thank each of you for every experience shared, friendship made, opportunity offered and good times had during this time.
I have thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of being part of the exploration group and I wish you all the very best in the future.
If anyone wants to keep in contact, you can email me on JaneWhatshername@hotmail.com (or on facebook).
Miss you all,
Love Jane Whatshername
And if they know you all too well:
Subject: You Won't See The Last Of Me!
I am leaving today to herd goats in Cyprus for my wealthy great-aunt. I wish to thank you for your support over the past X years. It was rewarding to achieve some of the targets with you, and to have known some of you personally (remember, what happens in the art department, stays in the art department).
I am now looking forward to the new challenges of close-quarter surveillance of the Billie-Gruff family, while moonlighting as a consultant in [industry/company].
If you are thinking of getting into the booming goat-herding industry (sorry [name of boss] to poach,) or wish to keep in touch, my contact details are [email/phone number].
I wish you all the best in your future.
Subject: Thank You and Goodbye

JaneWhatshername@hotmail.com or at 041111111.

Subject: Re: Leaving
On behalf of the crew at WhatsitsCompany I would like to say how sorry we are to hear of your departure.
Our loss is most certainly WhatsanotherCompany's gain.
While we have not had a lot to do with each other, whenever our paths have crossed your friendly disposition and smiling face has been a welcome addition to our day.
Thanks, and best of luck in your new career path.
Subject: Re: Leaving
Just to say all the best at WhatsanotherCompany, and thank you for the friendship and the upbeat attitude (you will be missed around the place trust me), no doubt we will catch up, so take care.
