How to Turn Down a Job Interview

Franklin Paterson Resumes Many jobseekers complain that they are being invited to interviews for jobs, that appear to have nothing to do with their current skills, or job interest.

What to do – should you turn down the interview, and if so, how do you turn down this interview, but still keep yourself active with the company or referral agency.
Should you attend every interview you are invited to?

  1. Before you turn down the interview ask for a bit of time to review your schedule or research the company. Ask the interview scheduler for the URL of the company career site; visit their site to learn more about the position.
  2.  Find out if the company hiring for many positions is there are other positions you might be interested in or qualified for.
  3. Often if you do not accept an interview when you are first called, you may have difficulty getting the HR person or the interview scheduler on the phone to schedule your interview or to turn down the interview.Â
  4. Send an email or leave a cordial message within a few hours, indicating an interest in taking the interview, learning more or your regret in turning it down. Highlight your interest in hearing about other positions at the company. If there is another job or location that you may have an interest say so, and include a snippet about your ideal job.
  5. Don’t wing it, have a prepared turned down comment of two or three lines. Try to end with a comment such as, “thank you for you time and consideration of my resume, I plan to mention your opening to qualified friends and associates.
