While it is not always easy, it is important that you provide employers with a timely decline of an offer, typically within one to two weeks. Read on for some guidelines on how to appropriately and professionally decline a job offer.
We advise that you decline the offer using the means of communication you have been using throughout the entire interview process. This may be by phone, email, or letter. If you do call the recruiter, be sure to follow up your conversation by sending a letter or email to him/her as well. This provides a record of your conversation.
If you have additional questions about declining a job offer, please call the Career Center at 979-845-5139 to schedule an appointment with your Career Advisor.
