The Job decline email

Dear Colleagues, Friends & Family,
As many of you know I was offered a wonderful job opportunity in a school social work position with an outstanding salary and awesome benefits. I decided not to take the position based on a number of different reasons, but it mainly came down to a “gut” feeling that told me it was not right for me. I have learned to trust that “gut” feeling and that internal tuition made me feel not at peace about taking the position. I know that I am more then completely qualified and able to take on such responsibilities, but it was not the right place for me, nor the right timing. I am completely at peace about this decision. This peace was furthered in my mind when the individual who I spoke with on the phone to decline the job position responded in such an unprofessional manner with rude comments. I know that if the Lord has me in Jackson or in a school social work, he will bring me another opportunity that is the right decision, in the right timing, with the right people.
I wanted to thank all of you who have been a part of this and have offered your opinions, resources and wiliness to help me develop as a professional. This was a hard decisino and was extremely hard to turn down, espically since this is exactly waht i want to do in the social work field. This will not be the first and last time that I will come to you for professional development advice, but I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I really appreciate all of you and wish you many blessings.
Thank you,
Sarah Smith
