The job offer letter is provided to the candidate you have selected for the position. Most frequently, the candidate and the organization have verbally negotiated the conditions of hire and the job offer letter confirms the verbal agreements.
Generally, the candidate has indicated that he or she will accept the position, under the stated terms, prior to the drafting of the letter. Do regard the position acceptance as tentative, however, until the offer letter, and the confidentiality agreement, if you use one, are signed.

The following job offer letter is customized for the early career professional. The beginning or early career employee usually accepts your standard job offer and the job offer letter is not complex. These candidates are happy to have an offer, appreciative of any benefits provided, and unlikely to negotiate for different or additional conditions of employment.
I would consult my attorney about any job offer more complicated or more extensive than this sample.
