I accepted an interview somewhere I don't want to work at due to location, and just realized. How do I cancel it? [duplicate]

I mean, how do I word the email so it doesn't look too ridiculous? Any ideas?

This office is in my area so I just assumed it's in my city, where I can get anywhere easily with public transport. Turns out it's actually in a town nearby.

I could of course get a car if I get the job, but I'd much rather work in the city and I don't think it'll be hard to get an offer here as there's a lot of opportunities. So I thought I'd turn this down. I think it'll look awful though and I don't want to burn any bridges, so, any idea how to word it?

First, don’t do this by email. It should be done by phone so there is no delay or chance it won’t go through. And it’s a more mature way to deliver bad news. (If they have only corresponded with you by email, then an email response s is fine. But if you have a phone contact, you should use it.)

Simply explain that you have decided that you’re not going to go forward with the interviewing process with them. When they ask for a reason, you can tell them why: the commute is undesirable.

They’ll understand.

what's your interest
