When a company offers a candidate a job, the offer will typically be formalized with a job offer letter even though you may have been verbally offered the job over the phone or in-person.

A job offer letter includes the position the candidate has been offered, the salary, the starting date, and information on employee benefits and retirement programs.

The following is an example of a job offer letter.
