Acceptance Letters

Even if you have accepted a job over the phone, it's a good idea to write a job acceptance letter to confirm the details of employment and to formally accept the job offer.

Your letter can be brief, but should include the following:

  • Thanks and appreciation for the opportunity
  • Written acceptance of the offer
  • Terms and conditions of employment (salary, benefits)
  • Starting date of employment

Address the letter to the person who offered you the position. Include your contact information and phone number, even though it is on file with the employer.

Make sure that your letter is well written and does not contain typos and grammatical errors. Even though you already have been offered the job, you want to make sure that all of your correspondence is professional.
