You recently met the manager of a new company that has just opened in your town. After the meeting he wrote to you to offer a job in this new company. However, you have to stay in your present job.
Write a letter to the manager. In your letter,
- Thank him/her for the offer.
- Explain why you cannot accept this offer
- Recommend a friend for this job
Dear Mr. David,
I believe you are doing fine. It was great meeting you in the party last Sunday and I thoroughly enjoyed the conversation with you. I have received a job offer letter from you and am writing in reference to the same.
I am pleased to have been offered the ‘Marketing Manager’ position in your company’s new branch in our city. However, I am unable to accept this offer because of my ongoing employment contract with my current employer. In the meeting, I informed you about my current job of a Branch Coordinator in an insurance company but I did not talk about the employment bond.
It would be great for me to join your team but unfortunately I have completed only one year with the present employer, which is half of the tenure of the contract. Anyhow, since I cannot accept the offer, I would recommend a friend who has four years of experience in the field of marketing and sales.
I sincerely apologize for turning down this excellent opportunity at the moment but would definitely check with you once my present contract is over. It would be a privilege to work with you and your team in the future. Thank you very much for considering my profile for this job.
