You recently applied for 2 separate jobs.
Both have chosen to hire you, but you must write a letter to 1 of them explaining why you are unable to take the position. Include in your letter:
- An apology
- An explanation of your situation
Dear Mrs. LaFayette,
I recently received a job offer for the position of administrative assistant. However, I have also received a job offer for another position that is much closer to my home. While your offer would be a great fit for me, the commute when compared to my other offer is less than ideal.
After considering my options, I must inform you that I will not be able to accept the position. I hope that this doesn’t inconvenience you and I apologize if I have wasted any of your time. I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to work for you, but I must also consider what is best for me in this case.
If the other position doesn’t work out so well, and the position you’ve offered is still available, maybe we can then make it work. Thank you again for the opportunity, I really appreciate it.
