HOW TO DECLINE A JOB OFFER
By Kristen Faucon, Marketing Intern, AgCareers.com

No matter what the reason may be, at some point you may have to decline a job offer or remove yourself as a candidate for a position. After going through the application and interview process, you have devoted a lot of time towards the recruiting process for each position and so has the company.

Through the job search process, you likely explored a number of opportunities or perhaps have determined through the recruiting process that this particular role is not the right fit for you and now you have to explain that to the company.
