Proper Etiquette for Declining a Job Offer

There are many reasons for turning down a job offer whether it’s in lieu of another opportunity or the compensation isn’t on par with what you were expecting.  However, it’s extremely important that you turn down the offer in a professional manner so you don’t risk burning bridges.  This “how to” post will walk you through the appropriate steps to take when you have to tell an employer you’re not going to accept their offer.

Don’t Look Desperate! Avoid Branding Yourself As a Desperate Job Seeker

Being eager and needy is as unattractive to hiring managers, as it is any personal relationship.  There’s a fine line between being enthusiastic and being annoying when interviewing for a job. Read this important post to learn how to avoid looking desperate in a job search, no matter how much you want, or need, the job.

Thanks. But, No Thanks | Turning Down a Job Offer that Isn’t a Good Fit

Before you start the interview process, it’s important to recognize that an interview is as much about you liking the company and the position as it is about them liking you.  There will be times in your career where the hiring committee thought you were the perfect fit, but for various reasons, the position or organization just wasn’t a good fit for you.  Much like the post above, this post discusses how to turn down the job offer without damaging your professional reputation.
