You’ve decided to decline a job offer, now what? Follow this no-fail 4-step plan and you’ll do fine.
1. Be nice. Thank them for the offer.
2. Be clear that you’re saying no. Leave no room for error. Don’t let them think you’re still considering it if another offer doesn’t pan out (unless you are).
3. Do them a favor and tell them why you’re not interested. Be specific; don’t say something useless like “it’s just not the right choice for me right now.”
4. Leave the door open in case something else comes up (or they change the offering). Your reasons for not accepting might just make someone rethink the position or there could be another opening in the future that’s a better fit for you.
