Employers will differ in how they extend an offer of employment to a candidate. Job offers may be extended over the phone or by letter. In either case, it may be necessary to clarify aspects of the offer prior to your final decision.
- Even if you are hesitant about accepting a job offer, it is best to show your enthusiasm and appreciation for receiving an offer. The last thing that you want to do is to appear unprofessional if you do not accept a position at the present time with the organization.
- Be specific about the conditions of the offer. State the salary, start date, benefits, or other relevant information you have been provided.
- If you are unable to make a decision with your current information, request additional information that may assist you with your decision
