How to write a job offer
Writing a job offer is incredibly important. From an employer’s side, it is a sign of intent that you have found the best person for the job, which, for the employee, is a wonderful letter to receive. Job trends are always changing but the letter you send won’t.
Within the job offer letter, you need to make sure that you include a number of important items so that everything is clear and there is no issue with miscommunication.
For starters, you need to ensure all personal details of the person you are addressing are correct. It would be incredibly unprofessional for this to be wrong. Next, you need to make sure that you are including important items like the job title, job role requirements, any relocation information and of course, the salary.
If you have it worked out already, a start date and/or length of the contract would also be great to include as well, or at least information on when a start date may be provided.
Lastly, you want to make sure that you include a welcome section, whether it is from the CEO, manager, or some other significant figure, a good welcome will make the future employee feel great.
