I just got a job offer at location A, which is over an hour from where I live and I am not willing to relocate or drive that far. What would be a proper way to decline (in an email)? I don't want to completely shoot it down because they may have offices closer to where I live, or know other recruiters closer to where I live who are looking for people of my skill set.
"Thank you for your time and interest, but upon further consideration I have decided that I would rather not relocate at this time. If you know of openings closer to [location] that you feel I would be well suited for, I would welcome a referral."
Saying what you mean, clearly and politely, is usually the best answer.
