Is a written record of the job offer by letter or email to confirm the successful candidate?

Most occasions the candidate and organisation have verbally negotiated and agreed on the job offer. It is a tentative position acceptance by the candidate until they receive the letter of offer and sign the document.

The letter of offer eliminates doubt and confusion and clarifies details such as: where and when to report, information about salary, benefits, key performance indicators and what to expect on the first day. It provides the new employee with that warm fuzzy feeling of excitement and happy to have accepted a position within the organisation.

All letters of offers are different, and this is a basic guideline of what to expect.
