Six years ago, I was jobless. It took me more than 5 months of job hunting before I finally got a job here in Manila. Now, it was completely different. Instead of writing an application letter, now I just recently wrote a job offer rejection letter:
Dear Mr. XXXXX,
Thank you very much for offering me the position of SEO Analyst with XXXXXXXXXXXXX. It was a difficult decision to make, but, my XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXXX.
I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to interview me and to share information on the opportunity and your company.
Please extend my gratitude to staff for their time and generous insights. I am sure in the future our paths will cross again. I look forward to potential professional interactions with you and your company.
Thank you again for your offer. I look forward to meeting you again someday soon in a professional capacity.
The world, indeed, is round, sometimes you’re up, sometimes you’re down. Why did I reject the job offer? Well, why would I accept a job offer if my current job is better than their offer, right?
