    Resignation next month

    Hi guys.

    Is it correct to say "I would have given my resignation by this time next month" or do I need to say "I will have given"?

    "I don't want to work here anymore, I would have given my reignation this time next month" or "I will have given"?

    Sorry I didn't get you. I think we should use "Will have done" here because "Would have done" is usually used for past. Am I correct?

    You've been given two opinions that "will have given" is correct (Mike's and Rover's). I agree. That's 3:0.

    Re: Resignation next month

    To make it 4-0, I also prefer the latter. However, I would find the following more natural: "I hate my job. By this time next month, I'll have resigned".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
