Job Offer Acceptance Letter 40 Professional Job Offer Acceptance Letter Email Templates
You should have a line at the bottom of the letter on which the new hire can sign. No this does not create a contractual situation but it does signify that the new hire has received and read a copy of the letter. Recently we concluded the placement of a Senior Sales Representative for a publicly traded company. The role was ripe with potential as the company products were being widely embraced by current and new customers. The recruiting process went smoothly as the candidate progressed through several rounds of face to face interviews with company executives. At the conclusion of the final interview our candidate was pulled aside by his prospective boss the Vice President of Sales.
Substantive conversation took place as the candidate and prospective employer agreed upon the terms of a potential offer. The candidate and prospective employer spent approximately 30 minutes discussing in detail the offer terms: base compensation commission schedule profit sharing and bonuses insurance coverage car allowance expense account and other related matters. At the end of the conversation the candidate and the prospective employer shook hands to "seal the deal". The VP of Sales told him that their HR Director would follow up with him in the next "few days" with an "official offer letter". Four business days later the candidate called me. I could tell this normally cool and collected sales professional was a bit flustered.
2. Evaluate all of the elements of the job offer letter and determine how each one measures up to expectations. The best way to do this is in writing or on a spreadsheet. Create three columns on the page. In the first column write a vertical list of categories such as salary bonus vacation benefits 401k etc. At the top of the second column write "Job offer letter" and at the top of the third column write "Expectations". In the "Job offer letter" column summarize the main points of the offer letter next to each category. So for example next to salary indicate the salary offered in the offer letter.
