How to say no to a job
Sometimes you can apply for a job that you really want, but after the interview process or finding out a little more about the company and it’s employees you decide that actually the job is just not right for you. In this case it can be difficult to then turn down the job if you get a job offer, particularly if you really do need a job. However, it is important that you think carefully before accepting any job offer, as you will spend more time there than you do at home, and not being happy can lead to you getting ill or being depressed a little way down the line. Here is how you can turn down a job that you don’t want.
- Contact the employer right away. The worst thing you can do when you know you want to turn a job down is to procrastinate and leave the employer waiting to find out that you are not going to take the job. The only way to do this politely is to contact them right away.
- Say thank you. You should start any conversation by thanking the employer for their offer and stating anything good you can say about the job and the interview process. This makes you seem grateful and will be remembered by the employer in the future.
- Reject the offer clearly. Don’t dance around the subject, make it completely clear that you are refusing their offer so that there will be no confusion.
- State why you are rejecting the offer. If you feel that the reasons for rejecting the offer are something that the employer won’t want to hear, then simply state that the job does not fulfil all of the requirements you are looking for.
