    If one of my employees asked for a reference letter, I would know that they were planning on resigning, so she may not be all that surprised.

    In the past when I have resigned from a position, I took a written letter of resignation with when I met personally with my manager. It was only after I had let her know that I was resigning, that I asked for a letter of reference.

    If you have been a good worker, there is no reason that she should not write you a reference letter.

    @BrookeBQ:  Can you write the letter and have her sign it if she is too busy to do it herself?

    I would tell her. The only reason you would want one anyway is because you are leaving.

    What field are you in that you would use a letter? Are you sure you even need it? I have never been asked for a reference letter ever in my career. The only time I have heard of them anymore is in education (teaching, pricipal, aid etc)
