Rescinding an Accepted Job Offer Sample Letter for Job-Seekers

Ms. Julie Cline
Handy Industries
1010 Peachtree Avenue NE
Atlanta, GA 30303

 

Dear Ms. Cline:

 

I want to thank you for offering me the position as a financial analyst at Handy Industries, as well as for the time you and your team spent with me during the interview process. When I accepted the position, I was sure that we were a perfect match.

 

After some additional reflection and soul-searching, however, I need to rescind my acceptance of your generous job offer. While I hold you, your team, and Handy Industries in the highest regard, I am not in a position at this time to accept your offer.

 

I want to wish you and Handy Industries the best continued success.

 

Thank you again, Ms. Cline, for all your time and effort. Perhaps our paths will cross again someday.

 

Sincerely,

 


 

Jane Oakley
