Script for Declining Callback

Postby Cilia » Sat Jul 30, 2016 1:33 pm

Does anyone have a good email template for politely declining a pre-eiw callback interview?

The templates I have are not very useful since they say something along the lines of "Thank you very much...but I have decided to accept another offer." I, however, would like to know how to decline a call back when you have not yet accepted an offer from another firm (but know for other reasons that you would not ultimately choose to work at the firm extending the callback, regardless of how the callback went).

If anyone has a standard format that they tend to use for this type of situation, I would really appreciate it! I am trying to be as inoffensive and clear as possible.

It really doesn't have to be much.

Dear [recruiter],

Thank you for your offer to further interview with [firm who must not be named]; however, I have decided to pursue my options elsewhere.

Sincerely,
Harry Potter
