An informal job offer letter/email is a document which the employer sends to the selected candidate to offer them a job for a certain position at their company.
An informal job offer letter or email is an official, but the less formal and brief version of the standard official employment letter or email.
Before sending this offer letter/email, employers should call the selected candidates and let them know that they are being offered the job. When candidates have indicated their acceptance, it is time to send an official job offer via letter or email.
To help you save time, we have created a standard informal job offer letter/email template. Use and customize this offer letter/email to suit your needs, and send it via email or traditional mail.
