Goodbyes are hard. And it’s even more challenging when you must say goodbye through email.

Recently, I left my full-time teaching position to pursue a writing career. Sending a farewell email to my close colleagues, unaware of my decision to transition to a new job, was bittersweet.

I preferred to say goodbye in person, but sometimes, time only allows for a farewell email. And that’s okay.

If you want to preserve your relationship with your colleagues or keep a line of communication open, you’ll like to send a proper goodbye email.

I asked ChatGPT to help me write a farewell email to my coworkers. This is what I got.
