Dear Mr. Interviewer:

Thank you for extending me a job offer with Only-The-Bes Inc. After considering it further, I have decided to decline your offer. Although I recognize the Staff Accountant position as a good opportunity, I feel that it would not be the best fit for my career goals at this time. Given my interest in working with many clients, I’ve decided to work in auditing for a public accounting firm. I appreciate your considering my candidacy for the position and investing the time to meet with me.

Once again, thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Confident and Capable
