Declining an Offer Letter

Declining an Offer Letter 2017-01-10T20:09:35+00:00

These letters are written when you have decided definitely to decline an offer from an employer. It is an act of courtesy to notify employers as soon as you have arrived at your decision with a phone call,  followed up with a letter.  It is not professional to leave a voice message declining an offer.
