What is an Offer Letter?

An offer letter or a job offer letter is one sent by an employer to a successful candidate after the interview, offering them the role. The offer letter can includes certian elements such as the job title and description, the salary and any associated benefits, reporting structure and start date, as well as somewhere for the candidate to sign in acceptance. A job offer letter is either mailed out or sent via email after a second or subsequent successful job interview. Candidates usually have a set time in which to respond to the job offer.
