Who says you shouldn’t say no? Just honestly say you’re not considering offers at the moment, but you’re thankful for opportunities and will definitely get in touch when you’re ready for the next step If you’d actually consider some roles, then just honestly say what it would take for you to move

Where on earth did you get the idea that “you shouldn’t say no to a recruiter”. One of the silliest thinks I’ve heard on fishbowl

like

just say exactly what you just said. as someone who also has a crippling fear of letting people down, sometimes it's okay to let someone down.

I think it’s completely fine to say you aren’t looking right now bc you just got promoted

Say no all the time.
