Model Answer 1:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I would like to thank you for the opportunity to join your company. Regrettably, due to the prevailing situation in my present organisation, I cannot accept the offer right now. However, I am hoping to be a part of your company sometime in the future.

In my present organisation, I have recently been given a chance to manage an important long-term project and I think this is the right time to portray my capabilities to the company. It not only paves over for my organisational development but also for my personal growth. In this juncture, bidding adieu to my present employer is not a right decision and I once again express my heartfelt gratitude for the belief you have on me and for giving me the offer. However, my current employer has recently requested me to carry on with them and I am grateful to them for the growth opportunity they have given me so far. I like the way this company manages big clients and a healthy work environment they offer.

Please do consider my humble request and I am extremely sorry for declining the job offer. However, I would like to work with you in the coming days and I am hoping that you would consider me a potential employee sometime in the future.

Yours faithfully,

Prasadarao Talluri

Model Answer 2:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing in response to the offer letter, you on behalf of the  DesignCrowd, have mailed me recently. I would like to thank you for the chance to join your company as a System Analyst. Unfortunately, I am unable to accept the offer right now and would like you to consider me in the future.

Before citing my reasons for not accepting the offer, I would first like to thank you for giving me such a great opportunity.  Due to my personal commitment to my current employer, I cannot accept your offer. Kindly note that I joined my current employer a year ago and when I informed them that I am planning to leave, my manager arranged a face-to-face meeting and convinced me to continue with them for at least another year. I love the way this company treats its employee on top of the performance appraisal and healthy work environment.

Thus, considering his faith in me, it would be too early to change the job. I hope you will understand my concerns for continuing my present job and allow me to remain in your good books.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Ria Nagpal
