polite email withdrawing from internship interviews

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Jan 17, 2015 4:31 pm

I just accepted an internship with a judge, and need to send out emails informing employers that I won't be interviewing with them anymore. Does anyone have a sample email template for this? I don't want to burn bridges or sound off-putting since some of the interviews I would have had are with employers I want to work for in the future, so what's a great way to let employers know that I want to keep in touch with them for future externship opportunities down the road/ask them about fall externships/2L internships?

Dear Employer,

Thank you for the opportunity to interview with [you]. I've recently accepted a judicial internship, however, and will have to withdraw my application. Thank you for your time.

Kind regards,

OP here. yes--if you want to oversimplify what I asked. I think it's a decent question to ask. I searched the forums for an answer to my question and couldn't find one. You are oversimplifying what I'm asking.

Most polite business communication can be summed up like this:

Dear Mr./Ms. Lawyer,

[Thank them if there was anything they did that you could thank them for, such as looking at an application, or taking any time to do something for you.] [Politely explain why you are emailing them.] [Thank them again for taking the time to take whatever action you want them to take.]

Sincerely,
John Doe
