Job Letter Rejection

Job Letter Rejection


A job rejection letter is written by a shortlisted job candidate who has been offered a post with an organisation but chooses to reject the job offered due to whatever reason. The letter should be formal and polite while informing the company of his rejection of the job offer. It is preferred to state the reason for not accepting the job proposal but you may or may not opt the option. You must address the sender and the receiver very well.

Below has been given a sample for job letter rejection to further clarify your view about it. The letter is clearly very formal that is being sent to a company regarding the rejection of the job. Start with thanking them for the offer and that you were pleased for being offered. And then state whether or not you are willing to accept the job for the reason being stated (optional). Follow a polite tone for the letter. End the letter with thanking them for the offer and wishing them good luck.

Dear Sir,

RE: Job Offer Response

Hi, Sir! Please allow me to thank you for your kind offer for the post of the General Manager at your esteemed organisation, as stated in your offer letter of February 10, 2017. I was pleased to hear from a company like yours that has a very good reputation and currently one of the highest value in the market.

But I regret to inform you that I will not be able to accept the post being offered at this point of time as I am not able to fulfil some of the stated terms and conditions attached to the post. For example, I have just become a new father, and it is not possible for me to be travelling every week for the next six months or so. Also, the salary being offered for the amount of work was I believe a little low than expected. Since I am currently earning more than the offered amount.

I apologise for the inconvenience that my decline of your job offer may cause you and the Fine Tuners Corporation. Although I would love to join if we come to some agreed terms in future. I wish you the best of success in your endeavours. Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Wayne J. Ferguson Bace
