Dear Mr. Jones:

Thank you for offering me the opportunity to co-op with [company name]. I appreciated the chance to meet with you and to learn more about your company.

Based on what I have learned about the various employers, I believe [company name] is not the best match for my skills and interests at this time. Please remove me from consideration for your current opportunity.
