Basically a transpose of a company rejecting u - “Thank you for considering me for the role. After deep thinking, I have decided to pursue other opportunities. However, in the future i do hope our paths cross again.”

I’m in the same boat. Following.

If I've worked and talked to the recruiter quite a number of times, I'd give them a call. If it's somebody who I've only passed emails with, I'd email them.

I say something like "Thanks for taking the time to meet and answer my questions. At this time, I'm declining for x,y,z"

You don't have to give a reason, but depending on the reason, you'll probably want to say you're interested in the future. I also like to add the the phrase "right now" in my reasoning so it also seems like a bit of a timing thing, and keeps the door open in the future.

“I politely reject your offer.”

I’m an HR Mgr, and need help approaching my HRC about her demeanor at work. She lost her father last fall, and since returning to work, she’s become incredibly delicate. Often cries at work, staff are hesitant to approach her; it’s like walking on eggshells constantly with her. She does her job well, she takes directions well, but there is no real initiative with projects/tasks and I NEED a strong no.2 - I feel like I’m constantly coaching her and trying to support her, but I’m tired 😣

I know that Google often lowballs nowadays unless you can show a competing offer, preferably from another FAANG. I am in the middle of interviews at Google and a recruiter from Facebook reached out. Trying to decide if I should try and get an offer from them for leverage. Does anyone know whether Facebook will send over the offer in email form before I verbally accept? I know some companies refuse to put anything in writing unless you verbally accept.
