Use this sample letter as a guideline for writing your own job offer acceptance letter.
Awesome! You got the offer! Even if you’ve accepted a job offer over the phone, it’s important to write a formal acceptance letter. Stating in writing your understanding of the terms of employment will help clear up any misunderstandings before they can snowball. Your acceptance letter is not a contract, but if any legal question ever arises over the terms of your employment, it certainly cannot hurt to have your understanding of those terms in writing.
