Reg.: Your job offer letter dated ________ for the position of _______.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you very much for offering me the position of (Job Title) with (Name of the Organization). I appreciate you giving me the time to consider the offer and discussing all the details.

After much forethought and deliberation, I have to decline the job offer due to personal reasons/ compensation package is not commensurate with my work experience/ job-posting location is not appropriate for my family and me/ workdays are more than industry standard. This has been a difficult decision for me.

You have a fine organization and you do some fantastic work. I wish you all and the organization the very best. It was a pleasure meeting you and your staff.
