Confirm Your Decision

At some point in your job search, you will have to accept and/or decline job offers. First, respond to the offer by telephone, then follow up with a letter. By confirming your decision in writing, you prevent any future confusion and misunderstandings.

When writing an offer acceptance letter, include details of the position including salary, other bonuses, job title, start date and location, and relocation package if one is offered. Don't forget to include a short message about your enthusiasm for the position and appreciation for the opportunity.

When writing a letter declining an offer, include a statement of appreciation for the offer, a brief reason for declining the offer, and a statement that leaves open the possibility of some future contact, if desired.
