How to Turn Down a Job Offer

In the situation where you need to turn down a job offer, the most sincere and professional approach is to offer a personal apology to the HR manager. However, sometimes due to time and geographical constraints, it is not always possible to do this, so please start with a phone call to the relevant person, expressing your decision to turn down their offer, then follow up with a letter of apology. Please refer to the "Receiving a Job Offer" section of the Career Handbook for advice on how to write a letter of apology or make a call for turning down a job offer.
