There are several professional letters that you can send to the recruiter to let them know that you are interested in the job opening. An acknowledging job offer letter is written to let the employer know that you are still interested in the job opening and will reply back within the stipulated time given to you. Use professional language to draft this letter, make sure that letter does not indicate anything negative. It is important to keep in touch with the employer, so that the employer does not feel that you are not interested in the job offer provided to you.
