You may have a long notice period before actually assuming your new position, so maintaining a positive impression is important, too. Download the letter template compatible with Google Docs or Word Online or read the example below.
You've landed your dream job and you're already planning your ascent to the top of the company, charming bosses and colleagues alike in a hailstorm of revolutionary ideas; before you crack open the champagne, though, there's the small but important matter of saying "yes" the role you've been offered.
Avoid Basic Errors As already mentioned, the important thing in this letter is to avoid making basic errors and tarnishing that great first impression that you made during the recruitment process.
The last thing you want is a professional communication that is littered with poor grammar or spelling errors.
I look forward to seeing you soon. Summarise your understanding of the offer so that everybody is clear on the agreement being made, thereby avoiding any nasty surprises further down the road.
It is with great pleasure that I accept the position with this formal letter of acceptance. The key word here, though, is formal: your new employers are not your pals just yet, so steer well clear of any LOLs, emojis and informal spellings.
Again, keep this polite but brief. Starting date of employment The letter can be sent by email or mail.
This should include salary, benefits and any other items that were agreed upon. Watch out for spelling and grammar. It is also the perfect place to ask any questions you may still have, about the role or benefits of your new job - especially if you forgot to ask when prompted in the interview.
This correspondence is part of the ongoing impression you will make as an employee of the company.
