Withdraw from position

Hi,

 

       Hope someone can give me advice on how to withdraw from a position I applied to. I was given a June start date but not yet set in stone.

        It is with a heavy heart that I must withdraw due to family hardship and I will not go into specifics reasons on here, but I will like to withdraw and leave in good standing so I can reapply in the near future once the family hardship gets better. 

        Do I contact the last recruiter who I had contact with? I hope Southwest does not hold a grudge because of my withdrawal and hope I can get on in the future with them. Any advice will be appreciated.

 

Thank you! 😢

I would imagine your best route would be thru your recruiter.

 

Explain it's a family emergency (recruiter doesn't need details), and make sure that person knows that you really want to try again when things get straightened out.

 

I seem to recall something about not being able to apply for a year after a turndown. Don't  know 

 

1) if there really is such a rule and

2) if there is, whether or not it would apply in your case.

 

Maybe someone else can clarify.

Sorry about your family emergency. But yes contact your recruiter and you can either push your start date back or withdraw. I would let them know it’s a gem emergency. Best of luck!

You can withdraw easily from your dashboard or you can also contact your recruiter and let them know, too. Unfortunately, it is true that you will have to wait a year before reapplying and SW will not hold a grudge. I wish you all the best with your situation. 💙
