How do I let the manager/HR know I accepted a different position?


Hi all!

I was hoping someone could help me out with my dilemma. I recently interviewed at hospital #1 and was told I needed to interview with the VP of nursing before a job offer would be extended. I then got an offer to interview at hospital #2 and was offered the position there today! I accepted the offer from hospital #2.

Do I need to email the manager from hospital #1 and let him know that I accepted a position at a different facility? He never formally offered me the position; he just said that the next step was the interview with the VP. He did, however, email me his contact info in case I had any questions. I had set up an interview for next week with the VP through HR, but never received a confirmation for the interview.

I have already called the HR recruiter at hospital #1 and let her know that I accepted a different position. The two hospitals are within in the same system, but have different HR recruiters. If it makes a difference, this is for a PRN position.

Thanks for reading!

I think emailing the first contact with a polite explanation and expressing your thanks for their time would be a great wrap up to the encounter. You could also including something about hoping to have the chance to work together in the future if you felt comfortable with that.

Congrats on your new job!

Thanks for the reply! I will email him...even though I feel totally awkward about it!
