Few days ago i was contacted by a recruiter from a reputable company inviting me to the hiring process for a business development role in their company, and as i had no clear idea of what that is i asked to learn more and shared my contacts. Later they scheduled a phone interview and shared the job description and responsibilities which to me looked like it has a lot of sales in it.

I have no experience in sales and my whole career consists of technical jobs whether it's IT, development, or other jobs. I have no clue why they contacted me but nothing i read in the description they sent make it sound like something i can/want to do but at the same time i accepted the phone interview. My question here is how do i get out of it politely without sounding like in incompetent person or someone who is just wasting their recruiter's time?

Thanks in advance.

Something like "Thank you for the opportunity. But after thinking it over I have decided that this isn't a role I want."

what's your interest
