When it comes to job interviews, what we're usually concerned about is whether or not we'll get the job. There are some cases, however, when we find ourselves worrying about turning the job offer down, especially after we have already accepted the company's terms and conditions and signed the necessary documents.

It's definitely an uncomfortable place to be in, which is why it is advisable to take at least a day or two to seriously study the offer and the circumstances of the job before signing anything. Backing out of a signed offer can lead to negative feedback on your reputation in the job market.

If you find yourself in that uncomfortable position, you might want to read these suggestions first before you do anything rash.
