Writing a Thank You Letter When You Don’t Want the Job

If you’re reading this, then it’s probably safe to assume that you don’t want the job. But what if you did, and now you’re faced with a decision: Do you send your thank you letter, or do you keep on looking for employment?

No one wants to write a thank you letter, but it’s a necessity. After all, you did get the job. But what if you don’t want it?

It’s a dilemma for many, including me. Not too long ago, I applied for a job that I really didn’t want, and as a result, I ended up writing a thank you letter. The next day, I got a call from the person who interviewed me, asking if I was interested in changing my mind. I told him I was, but that I had already written my letter, and there was nothing he could say to change my mind. Then he told me he would let me know if any other positions became available, and we said goodbye.

I don’t recommend you go through with it either. Believe it or not, writing a thank you letter isn’t as horrible as you think it is. It might be hard to believe, but for the most part, it’s pretty straightforward. Even if you don’t end up choosing to stay, at least you’ll be able to look back on this stage in your life with a clearer perspective.

The Final Decision

So you’ve decided that you don’t want the job. Now what? There are a few things you can do, and I recommend doing them all. First of all, take a break. Go on vacation, or go back home and spend some time with your family. You deserve a little break after all that hard work. Second, find a new hobby. One that you can really get into. Hobbies help to put things in perspective and give you a new perspective on things. It’s important to have hobbies outside of work, because work can become stressful. You never know when something might come up that requires a lot of thought or effort, and it’s important that you have some spare time for these things. Third, look for a different job. Not too long ago, I was in a very similar situation. I didn’t want the job, but I was convinced that the only way to get what I wanted was to apply for it. I got a call the next day from the company asking me if I would like to change my mind. I told them I was happy where I was, but that I would think about it. Then they asked me if I was still interested in a different job, and I told them yes, I was.

I got the job I wanted, and I was able to go back home and spend my life with the person I love. So, in the end, it was all worth it. You need to find a job that you truly enjoy, and make sure that you are comfortable in your role. Remember: happiness is a choice. You’re in control of your life. No one else. So, choose wisely.
