你曾經試過找工作或找實習時,一次投了好幾家公司的履歷,最後都成功面試並陸續接到錄取通知嗎?在這種情況下只能做取捨,但是要怎麼婉拒自己不想加入的公司呢?拒絕一個「offer」,也許比投遞一份屢歷還難,就怕自己一時說錯甚麼話,萬一得罪了公司,在業界同行一傳十,十傳百,那該怎麼辦?今日今天一次教會你如何用英文信件有禮貌的拒絕!


  

一、1分鐘單字速速記 Vocabulary

  • to get ahead of oneself (phrs. v.) 好高騖遠
  • decline (v.) 拒絕
  • to turn something/someone down (phrs. v.) 拒絕某人/事
  • self-explanatory (adj.) 不言自明的/就字面上而言
  • to push something/someone over the top (phrs. v.) 讓某人/事更超越原本目標/更上一層
  • to be in someone’s good books (phrs. v.) 留在某人的好名單內
  • to go without saying (phr. v.) 不言而喻
  • to throw one’s hat in the ring (phrs. v.) 參加競賽
  • to burn one’s bridges (phrs. v.) 斷某人後路
  • aspiration (n.) 志向;渴望達到的目標
  

二、 標準程序 S.O.P.

1.Secure a position 先確保有工作

This is very self-explanatory: don’t get ahead of yourself and make sure you have a plan before you turn down a job. Whether you’ve already accepted an offer somewhere else, or you want to keep on looking, never burn your bridges.

如字面上所說的:不要好高騖遠,在拒絕一份工作前最好已經有先找到工作了喔。不管你是否已經在其他公司接受了錄取通知,或是你還想再繼續找,千萬不要自斷後路啊。 
 
 2. Decide on how you want to respond 決定該怎麼回覆

Following suit is usually a safe way to approach this, but a personal phone call will definitely push you over the top, even if you’re no longer interested in the offer. Who knows, maybe your roads will cross again in the future. Always try to stay in a prospective employer’s good books.

跟風是一個比較安全的作法,但用電話回覆絕對會讓人對你的印象分提高、更上一層,即使你對這份工作沒興趣了。而且也許兩方在未來的職涯上還是會碰到也不一定。總而言之把自己留在對方的好名單上絕對沒壞處囉!

3. Phrase your thoughts carefully 仔細地組織你的想法

This goes without saying but make sure to word your responses carefully. You don’t want to offend anyone regardless of how unfitting the position may be for you. Afterall, you’re the one who decided to throw your hat in the ring to begin with!

簡單講就是回覆的時候一定要注意你的用詞。就算這職位多麼的不適合你,你也不會想要冒犯任何人,對吧!畢竟,一開始是你自己決定要來應徵這份工作的嘛。

  

三、常用句型 Common Phrases

If you’re looking to respond with an e-mail, stay tuned for our upcoming article on business emails and templates! For now, we’ve got you covered with some useful phrases that’ll round out what you want to say no matter what your reason for decline is.

如果你準備要用電子信件來回覆對方,那就敬請期待我們之後會發布的商業書信範本篇喔!而就本篇文章來說,我們準備了一些好用的說詞,讓你用各種方式來回拒。

理由一:

You like the company and its visions, but not the job description.

你喜歡這家公司以及它的遠景,但是不喜歡該職位的工作內容。

Definitely bring up how the company vision inspires you and that you share common goals, but you feel like your expertise and experience would be more beneficial for the company from another position.

絕對要提到你相當贊同公司的遠景,與你的想法不謀而合,但以你的專業以及相關經歷,你認為你自己應該會更適合公司其他的職位。

1.“I applause and am inspired by the company vision; however, I believe I will be more beneficial from a different angle.”

我的確被公司的遠景給激勵了;然而,我相信我如果從不一樣的角度切入的話,一定可以給公司帶來更多的好處。

2.“The company and I share the same goals and vision in the field of ______. I will definitely have more to offer in terms of expertise and experience from (preferred position).”

我跟公司對於_______這個區塊的未來以及展望都有一樣的看法,依照我的專業以及之前的經歷,我一定可以從(想要的職位)的角度提供更多的幫助。

理由二:

You don’t like the company, from top to bottom.

你從頭到尾都沒喜歡過這家公司。

Well, first of all, you probably shouldn’t have applied for the job in the first place. However, remember that there’s always a chance that both parties may meet again, so never show your dissatisfaction. You can simply inform them that you’ve already accepted an offer elsewhere, or you have other plans.

痾,第一,你也許一開始就根本不應該應徵這份工作。不過,記得彼此以後還是有可能會在別的地方見面,所以不要輕易露出不滿意的表現,你可以簡單的通知他們說你在別的地方已經找到工作,或是你有其他規劃了。

3.“Thank you for the great offer. Although I was very keen on this role, I have since been offered another job which is a closer fit to my career aspirations.”

感謝你們的欣賞,雖然我對這個職缺很有熱忱,但我已經在另一間公司找到一份更符合我職涯期望的工作了。
4.“Many thanks for your offer of the position. I am afraid that after further consideration, I have decided to decline the offer.”很感謝您的認同以及工作機會,我近期恐怕有其他的考量,必須要先拒絕這份工作了。

理由三:

You’re not happy with the money. 
你對薪資不OK。

This can get kind of ugly if you are not careful when showing your concerns in this aspect. However, you need to be honest without showing aggressiveness, or even threatening (for example, ‘If you don’t give me a better offer, you better find someone else.’).

這部分如果你沒有洽當的表達的話,現場可能會變得有點尷尬。你必須要以一種誠實卻又不會太過積極,更不能有威脅的態度來提出你的想法。(比如說: 你如果不給我更好的薪資,那你最好另請高明吧!)

5.“Thank you for the offer, but as much as I would like to take on this exciting opportunity, the salary is not in line with my needs at this time.”

感謝你提供的這個職缺,雖然我很想要這個讓人興奮的機會,但很遺憾薪資的部分,並沒有到達我目前需要的底線。

6.“While I am very much interested in the position, the compensation does not meet my expectations. If there is a higher earning position you believe I might be qualified for, I would love to be considered for future opportunities!”

雖然我對這職缺非常的有興趣,但是薪資的部分沒有符合我心裡的期待。如果你覺得我有符合貴公司更高薪資職缺的話,我很希望有機會可以挑戰看看。

理由四:

You want more time to think about the offer. 
你需要更多時間來想想。

Don’t take too much time after you’ve received an offer to think about it. They won’t wait around forever, but here are some phrases you can use to buy you some time:

如果對方已經說了要給你這個工作機會,你就別花太多時間思考了,公司是不會一直在那邊等你的,但是若真需要拖一點考慮的時間的話,下列這些句子可以給你參考。

7.“Thank you for the offer and I’m thrilled to have received it. Could you please let me know when you would need my confirmation? I would like to do a little more research if possible.”

感謝您的賞識,真的很高興收到通知。可以讓我知道何時跟您確認是比較洽當的呢? 我想對自己的狀況多做一點評估。

8“There are a few things I need to take into consideration, please kindly let me know when I need to give you an answer.”

我還有一些個人的事情需要考量,可以讓我知道何時要給您答案嗎?

Needless to say, if you’re reading this, employers are probably knocking on your door already! A ‘Congratulations!’ is in order! Even if it’s just for future references, we hope you’ll find the above helpful.

無須多說,如果你都讀到這邊了,新的雇主可能已經離你不遠了!恭喜恭喜啊!即便是當作未來的參考資料,我也希望你可以從這篇文章得到些幫助喔。
