Response 1:

Dear sir/madam,

I regret to inform you that I will not be taking up the position you've offered me as an architecture on one of your many prestigious teams.

Your architecture firm is one of the most prestigious institutions in our country and it saddens me that I have to decline your offer. One of many reasons is that your building is situated at least an hour's drive away from where I stay and in an area that is known for its crime. This is an issue because I do not own a car and would have to depend on public transport, which isn't exactly famous for its safety. The salary you're offering me is reasonably high; however, taking into consideration the added work load and increased hours away from home- that job simply won't work for me.

I am deeply honoured that you'd consider me for the position as I am aware of how difficult it is to get any position in your firm, taking into account your high standards. However, I am more than content with my current job in a smaller but flourishing architectural firm that is situated six miles from my home. My current place of work is convenient for me.

I appreciate your humbling consideration.

Kind regards,
