Our guidance how to effectively turn down an offer.
If you've only ever received one offer at a time, then the thought of turning down an offer might be quite odd. However, the more you listen to Career Tools and make yourself into a desirable candidate, and the more you listen to the Interview Series and ASK for offers, you will soon find yourself in the enviable position of turning down offers.
It's totally possible to turn down an offer, continue to have a great relationship with the company and the hiring manager and get another offer from them later. Your aim is to decline the offer, gracefully and professionally, and avoid doing anything which irritates the hiring manager.
So, how do you do that?
