Courtesy and protocol require that you respond in writing when accepting a job offer. In essence you are restating a verbal contract of employment and making sure that there are no misunderstandings on either your part or the employer's part concerning the agreement.

This letter should contain the following information:

  • First paragraph - Indicate that you are writing to accept a specific position. Identify the position by name to avoid any confusion.
  • Second paragraph - State the basic terms of employment including position title, salary, location, and starting date. It is especially important to stress any unusual or unique working conditions which were agreed upon.
  • Last paragraph - Express your sincere thanks for this excellent opportunity to join the firm/organization.
