Informal offer letters are just as official, but not as comprehensive as our formal offer letter format. An informal offer letter can also be sent in email format. An email offer letter tends to be less formal and covers the most basic aspects of the job offer before sending a full offer letter.
An offer letter email can include salary, an outline of benefits, and immediate next steps. Modify this sample offer letter email with the most pertinent information for your candidate.
