Congratulations! You have made it now step ahead and join the team. Always wonder what to do in this situation then this is the right place for you!!

When you got a Job, this seems to be very interested and important phase of your life because you are starting your career and moving ahead.

Now, What is a Job Offer?

A Job Offer is an invitation for a potential candidate to word in a specific position for an employer. A job offer contains the details of the employment offer, that includes salary, benefits, job responsibilities, and the reporting manager's name and title.

What to include in a job offer Acceptance/Declining letter or email?Now, first it's up to you that if you want to accept or decline the offer because sometimes you just can't accept due to personal or professional reasons.

So, what to do in a declining situation. First you have to be polite and considerable in any situation like this.

  1. Show your appreciation.
  2. Keep it simple don't just go overboard.
  3. Provide them a reason but don't be too specific about it.
  4. Thanking them.                     

 I'm giving you some examples of some responses depending on your situation.

1. The pay isn't enough for you 

If you feel that the pay is the sole reason for you but you like the company's role are fit for you then state in your email or letter that you are declining the offer just because of salary.

2. Roles and Responsibilities

You work in a company so that you can give your time and be responsible for your work but if you don't like the roles and responsibilities then you can easily put that point in your declining offer.

3.Work Environment is not a Good Fit.

There are several things that can be considered in declining the offer. Work environment is very much important. If you by any chance feel that you can't fit in that type of culture or you don't like the atmosphere then feel free to tell this point in your declining offer.

Now, the situation is reverse : How to respond in an acceptance letter.
