Email Job Offer Rejection Letter sample content:

Dear {{Name}}, 
I, {{Name}} am writing this letter to you in response to the job offer letter which I received on {{Date}}. The offer letter was for the position of a {{Job Position}} at {{Company}}. I am really sorry but I cannot accept the offer.
I am very honored to have received this job offer letter from you but I am rejecting it because I have already been employed by another workplace. {{Company}} is a popular store in {{Location}} and working here as a {{Job Position}} would have been a great opportunity for my career but I have already confirmed by job acceptance at {{another Company}} and thus cannot accept your offer. I hope that you will understand my decision and would not hold this against me. I would like to once again thank you for your kind offer and hope to work with you sometime in the future. Thanking you. Yours sincerely,

If it really was a no–brainer to make it on your own in business there’d be millions of no–brained, harebrained, and otherwise dubiously brained individuals quitting their day jobs and hanging out their own shingles. Nobody would be left to round out the workforce and execute the business plan. | Bill Rancic
