“Put it in writing, or it didn’t happen.” This advice from lawyers is relevant for jobseekers — especially when accepting a new job. But what should you say in a letter of acceptance, refusal, or resignation? This guide will provide you with templates you can use.
Letter of Acceptance
Writing a letter of acceptance is especially important if your job offer was made orally but you have not — or did not — receive confirmation of the offer in writing. An effective letter of acceptance includes clarification of four key pieces of information: job title, salary information, details of benefits being offered (if any), and start date.
You can also clarify the date that the job offer was extended, as well as any additional information the company needs from you — or that you need from the company — before starting the new job. Address the letter to the person who offered you the position.
