Declining Offers?
« on: October 19, 2007, 12:22:08 PM »
What is the most polite way to do it? Should I call the recruiters I have been working with, or the attorneys who called me with the offers? Letters? Can I punk out and send emails? I really liked a couple firms I am turning down and I don't want to do anything to piss them off because this is a *very* small legal market. Thanks in advance!

I'd respond in the same form to the same person that gave you to the offer.  So, email from recruiter = no email to recruiter, call from partner = call to partner.  You could probably get away with emails, that's how I turned back some callbacks, but if you're worried about giving a good impression in a small market, make it more personal and offer some reasoning for your decision.
