Lets go over the basics of writing a job offer thank you letter.
Why Do You Need to Write One?
My mother always told me that if someone gives you something nice, you should thank them. Well, what really is nicer than a job?
Beyond showing your appreciation, by writing a than you letter, you can also indicate whether or not youâ€™ll be accepting the job. Its a good idea to show your gratitude whether or not you ultimately decide to accept the job offer.
