Free Sample Letter for Accepting a Job Offer



Use this sample letter as a guideline for writing your own job offer acceptance letter.



Awesome! You got the offer! Even if you’ve accepted a job offer over the phone, it’s important to write a formal acceptance letter. Stating in writing your understanding of the terms of employment will help clear up any misunderstandings before they can snowball. Your acceptance letter is not a contract, but if any legal question ever arises over the terms of your employment, it certainly cannot hurt to have your understanding of those terms in writing.

Mrs. Walter Mellish
Greenley Corp., Inc.
1010 Madison Avenue
New York, NY

Dear Mrs. Mellish: 

It was certainly wonderful news when you called this afternoon to offer me the position as assistant buyer for Greenley Corp. Please consider this letter my formal acceptance. 

I am pleased to accept your offer at a salary of $34,000 annually. 

As we agreed, my starting date will be July 28 to enable me to finish a summer computer class that will enhance my skills for Greenley Corp. 

I also understand that I will receive full company pay and benefits during the 12-week training program and that I am considered probationary during that time. 

Thank you again, Mrs. Mellish, for offering me this wonderful opportunity, and do let me know if I can do anything in advance of my start date to facilitate the paperwork, or if there are any areas you’d like me to be reading up on. 

What a delight it will be to work with you and the Greenley team!
