How Do I Decline A Job Offer?

Go into any communication professionally and respectfully. You should never burn any bridges professionally as you simply don’t know what impact it will have. The best option is to send a formal email back to the company and graciously decline the offer. Begin by thanking them for their time and effort put into considering you as an applicant. State that after careful consideration, you have made the decision to withdraw your application, or that you wish to decline your offer. If you absolutely need to, you can provide them with a reason, but remain as vague as possible.
