Email Template 1 (Pre-Written Email text)

Hi {recipient name},

Thanks for considering me for your project. I’m sorry to say that I won’t be able to take it on. I don’t have the time and resources available.

I am working on some other projects and I am already running late for them, so please understand my decision.

I would be very happy to work with you again in the future if you want.

Regards,{sender name}

Email Template 2 (Pre-Written Email text)

Subject: Re: Project Offer

Hi {recipient name},

I am very sorry to say that after careful consideration, this project is not the right fit for me. I hope that my qualifications will speak for themselves and that you will not be discouraged by the fact that I cannot provide details at this time. Without getting into specifics, I am confident in my abilities to meet deadline requirements.

Email Template 3 (Pre-Written Email text)

Subject: Decline Offer

Hey {recipient name},

I am sorry to say this, but I am unable to accept your offer as I am already juggling too many projects that need my attention. It is very unfortunate that it is such short notice, but I do apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused. Perhaps we can reconnect at a later date?


Best of luck!
