Job Refusal Letter to a Company

When you are not accepting a job offered by a company for any reason, writing the rejection letter is a right thing to do. Declining the job offer verbally is not a practical act and it is good to write a letter. The purpose of writing the letter is to let the reader know that you are turning down the job offered by them. The letter should be short and no important information should be missing in it. The conciseness and the briefness of the letter should be maintained. The job refusal letter should be written immediately after you have made the decision of rejecting the job so that the employee can hire someone else. There is no specific format to be followed in the letter however; the letter should be written in such a way that the professional touch can be seen in it. The tone of the letter should be positive and it should reflect that you are not being rude or arrogant. The letter should be polite so that the doors for the future opportunities remain open for you even after rejection.

Dear [Recipient’s Name],

Thank you so much for offering me the job for the post of assistant manager in your company. I regret that I am declining your offer. Although there are many opportunities for me in your company to grow and prosper but I have chosen another company to work in because they offer me better job related to my skills and better salary package.

I really enjoyed meeting you and your team. You had been very kind to me in the interview and I wish that I could work with you.

Best wishes your company’s success.
