How Do I Tactfully Reject A Job Offer. by Nobody: 9:24pm On Mar 29, 2017
I received the worst humiliation of my life today. Let me go a little back in time. There's this organisation who's name has gained so much acclaim that I thought those working there are swimming in money.

A friend gave me a privileged info that they are recruiting. I thanked him dearly and thought I had hit jackpot. Next days I polished my shoes kissed my kid on the forehead and headed for the company with my CV and carefully crafted cover letter. Few weeks later I was called for an interview and I did justice to the interview and impressed the interviewers. I was told I would be selected but that I had to resume month ending however I can move into a mini flat within the company premises because the work will require some days of night working.

I was happy at least my people we see daddy as scarce. I packed some of my things and started enjoying my new cribs. Few days to the end of the month I decided to ask the HR how much my pay would be and he told me 80k. I immediately felt like crying. 80k can't possibly sustain me, my wife, my kid and my galfriend. I told him outrightly that it was too small. He then said he will ask his boss so he can add something then he will get back to me tomorrow.

My question is how do I reject this job that I already accepted with a firm hand shake. And how do I suddenly park my bag and baggages out of the premises. I am so confused.

Bro do u have a Job before this new job? Well I will advice that you wait till u get a feedback from the man that promised to talk to his boss on your behalf. And besides, you have a free accommodation, why not hold on to this job till something good comes up.
All the best!

No sentiments.

This is your life and career.

Send them a letter of rejection that you will be looking at another direction after careful consideration of the offer and deliberations with you family who are important stakeholders.

I have rejected several offers before and they modify it to lure me.

As a matter of fact where I am currently.I accepted their 3rd offer after rejecting 2 because it was simply not in my favour.

Dnt look face when it comes to Ur career

Is it possible not to include consideration in an offer b4 acceptance? I want to believe this is just an anecdota but not real? OFFER-CONSIDERATION-ACCEPTANCE. These three are d basic elements of any valid contract. Pls clear us on this.

I would want to believe he is trolling. It is not possible for a company to ask you to resume with them without discussing your NET and GROSS, alongside perks.

Besides, he gave himself away by painting a picture of a well structured coy 'there's this organisation who's name has gained so much acclaim that I thought those working there are swimming in money.' and then failed to follow through, thereby hinting us that it is a one man business 'I told him outrightly that it was too small. He then said he will ask his boss so he can add something then he will get back to me tomorrow.'

Besides, I know of companies providing accommodation to certain staff, but doing so with the company's premises when it is not a teaching/security job?

This is definitely unleavened bread. I no chop.

I won't come here and start telling lies. The organisation does radiological investigations. It's more of a man and a wife that runs the place and it has gained so much name in the environment that clients troop in every second. The in house staying is so that when clients come in the midnight they can be attended to. As it's a 24hr service being offered.

Think I will do that. Once the HR doesn't give me a positive response. I'm out.

And then you took an offer without knowing how much you'd be getting both as GROSS and NET? Like who does that Talking about the way you 'dusty' and 'carefully crafted' your cover letter, it is obvious you aren't a novice in the resume and cover letter business. If true, then how come you are a novice in talking about your salary with an employer, let's assume they never mentioned it?

Perhaps you got too excited upon hearing the apartment news that you forgot to negotiate/Talk about your pay.

I agree with you. Most of these medically related jobs that are glorified one men businesses unfortunately don't offer appointment letters. They simple use word of mouth. 80k simply cannot maintain the lifestyle I seek.

80k cannot maintain the lifestyle I seek. I have already pack a lot of my things right now. When I come back will pack the remaining. I don't want to spend this year unhappy.
