You may download the job offer letter sample displayed below. The file is in rich-text format (.rtf), which is compatible with most word processors such as Microsoft® Word.

For a plain-text version of this job offer letter sample (e.g., for inserting into the body of an email), just highlight the text below with your mouse and copy and paste it to a plain-text editor, such as Windows® Notepad.

When modifying this job offer letter sample, be careful about that to which you commit in writing. A job offer letter could become a legally-binding employment contract of sorts, should the employee later dispute what you offered vs. what he or she actually received on the job. So, make sure that you can deliver what you offer in writing. (Consult legal council if you have any doubts about writing a job offer letter.) But do include as many details as practical in your job offer letter or as attachments or enclosures, so that your job candidate has enough information to make an informed decision. Remember, candidates might receive other job offers. Consequently, you might be competing for their attention.
