Interview Thank You Letter: Thank You For the Offer, But...

This Interview Thank You Letter is about a person who is ambivalent about accepting a job offer after having had a sucessfull interview. The writer all but turns down the offer. I was a little stunned by his response, especially given how hard it is to find jobs in our present day economy. Please tell me what you think after reading it.

*************************************************

Dear Mr. Smith,

Thank you very much for meeting with me yesterday. I think I'd be a great fit at The Pony Express, and I wanted to let you know that I was caught off-guard with the immediate job offer presented to me.

I don't think I conveyed my interest very well, and the Express is at the top of my offers list.

With that said, I do need some time to process all of my options to determine the best fit for both parties.

I have a few questions that I'd like to run by you -- I suppose the most pressing of which is "When do you need a decision from me by?"

Would there be a good time to contact you in the next few days? Please reply at your convenience and let me know.

Again, thank you for this opportunity -- I look forward to your response.

Best regards,

Jonathan
