How to Tell a Headhunter You Don’t Want a Job

As humans, we’re apt to change our minds, and as job seekers, that inclination increases tenfold—especially when we have multiple options to sort through. While an enticing internal counteroffer pulls you one way, a killer culture and new responsibilities pull you another. You’ll inevitably have to say “no” to someone.

Turning down a job offer can be hard enough, but when you have to turn down a position a headhunter approached you with, it can be even more difficult. However, it’s important to not feel awkward or embarrassed.

More importantly, unless your headhunter misrepresented herself, you should stay connected to her even after you turn down a job. If you’re a talented person who doesn’t flake on interviews, she’ll still want to work with you. And at the end of the day, she wants you to be in the job that’s the right fit for you.

Here’s how to move forward—the right way.
