Cover Letter for Adminstrative Jobs
During the recruitment process, you may receive job offers from several companies. After receiving a job offer, your immediate reaction would be to send an acknowledgement letter. It is important to have a professional approach, when you are drafting these letters. Let the employer know that you are elated to receive the job offer. If any details in the offer letter send to you are not clear, then you can ask for clarification through the acknowledgement letter you send. You can enclose documents along with this letter, if the employer has asked you to submit any official documents.
Those candidates, who had asked the employer to extend the date of joining, should thank the employer, if the employer has accepted their request. Use professional letter writing format, when you are drafting this letter. It is important that your job offer letter should have a positive approach. If you are telling the employer that you are still thinking about the job offer, do not mention anything negative, because you have yet not joined the company. Letters are best way of communication during the recruitment process. You can use the acknowledgement letter provided below for your reference.
