Need a Sample Job Offer?

By October 23, 2013

Follow me on:

You can present this job offer to the candidate you have selected for your open position. Use this new Human Resources sample job offer, only after you have considered these seven critical factors. You are wise to review these factors before you make a job offer.

Leading Up to a Job Offer

Once you've decided on the candidate who will receive your job offer, you most frequently have verbally negotiated salary and the conditions of hire. The job offer confirms the verbal agreements. In fact, I always negotiate verbally before writing the formal job offer. This saves me lots of time and rework in case I need to redo the job offer in response to a candidate's negotiations.

I do find that higher level, senior and executive candidates, will negotiate via email; this is also fine as the negotiation involved in an employment contract (often desired) with a senior employee is more detailed than in other agreements.

Generally, the candidate has indicated that he or she will accept the position, under the stated terms, prior to the drafting of the job offer. Do regard the position acceptance as tentative, however, until the job offer, and the confidentiality agreement, if you use one, are signed and in your file.

These tips will help you pursue successful salary negotiations with your most wanted candidates. It's easier than you think. Negotiating? These tips are for you, too.

These additional Human Resources sample letters will help you reject candidates and resign from your job in addition to making job offers.
