How To Back Out Of An Interview

So, you're out there interviewing and, even though you still have interviews scheduled, you accept a job offer. Of course, that is a good problem to have. But now what do you do about the interviews that are already scheduled?

Well, for starters, if you've not started the job, there is no reason to turn your back on the interviews with the other companies.

But if you do, here's how to do it.

Reach out to the person with whom you were going to interview. As is usually the case, a phone call works better than an e-mail. Thank them for the opportunity and graciously decline the interview. Don't beat around the bush. Thank them and tell them you won't be available to interview.

If you were working with a recruiter, they deserve a call as well.

Leaving a good impression is important, even if you're saying no.
