Job-Seeker Sample Letter Declining a Job Offer

Mrs. Walter Mellish
Greenley Corp., Inc.
1010 Madison Avenue
New York, NY

 

Dear Mrs. Mellish:

 

Thank you for the time and effort you spent considering me for a position as seminar leader. I appreciate your time and effort -- as well as those of your staff. I am grateful for your offer of employment.

 

Because I was so impressed with Greenley Corp., I had a difficult decision to make. After much thought and careful deliberation, however, I have decided not to accept your offer.

 

I wish you and Greenley Corp. the best continued success. I hope our paths will cross again in the future.

 

Thank you again for your time and consideration.

 

Sincerely,


 

 

Jane Oakley
