Declining an offer after signing the offer letter.

  • 41

I am a new graduate and I recently signed a job offer letter that contains the date of joining, job location and salary. I would like to pursue further education, however the letter states that by signing and dating the letter I accept the job offer of a Sales Engineer with ABC Company. Could you please provide me with some guidance on this matter as I am unfamiliar with the process?

  1. Dear friend, If you are interested in furthering your education, why did you apply for the job? If you applied, why did you attend the interview? If you attended the interview, why did you accept the offer letter? Making the decision to pursue higher education is a well thought out process. Why did you come to this conclusion after accepting the offer letter? How can you be so inconsistent? Not joining the company would be a letdown for them. Think about if the company had done the same thing to you, such as issuing an offer letter and then withdrawing it. If you are determined to pursue your education, send them an email expressing your inability to take the job. Before sending the email, you may want to give them a call and inform them.
