How to send a job offer letter or job offer email to candidates?

Timely and clear job offer letters or job offer emails to candidates can significantly improve candidates experience and acceptance rate. That being said, when writing job offer emails, make sure that your subject line is clear as this is very important for improving your job offer email open rate.
Job offer emails, in general, should contain information such as:
  • Job title
  • Working hours
  • Department
  • Contract length
  • Salary details
Many companies like to include additional data such as policies and procedures most relevant to their positions in their job offer letter/email. Also, in order to improve your candidate experience, and strengthen your Employer Brand, including your employee stories and testimonials in your job offer letter/email may be a good idea.
