How Do I Decline or Cancel a Job Interview?

There could be various reasons for you to cancel or change your mind about a job interview. The rule of thumb is to be diplomatic, polite and do not burn any bridges. A graceful and well-worded rejection is the most professional way to communicate that you are no longer interested in the position. Thank them for taking their time to review your application, but state that you will unfortunately be withdrawing your application for the role. Be vague about your reasoning, and if possible do not mention it at all. Wording like “I respectfully decline this interview or offer” can also be used in the email
