Accepting An Offer/declining An Offer Letter


Accepting an Offer/Declining an Offer Letter
After you have made your decision please notify the employer by telephone and follow up with an
acceptance or a decline letter. Please keep in mind that when you accept an offer, you have a
professional obligation to join that employer. Reneging on an offer (i.e., accepting an offer,
changing your mind and then rejecting it) is both unacceptable and unprofessional; doing so damages your
professional reputation, the reputation of VCU alumni employed by that organization and, of course, the
reputation of Virginia Commonwealth University.
