Gracefully declining

Why it matters

Your hunt is over. You've finally accepted an opportunity, had a small celebration with friends, and now you realize you're going to need to decline your other job offers. It's natural to feel guilty or a little ashamed, especially if the company was fair and honest in its dealings. You may feel like you're letting someone down. But if you've made your decision, you owe it to yourself and the company to communicate the declination.
