You’ve spent a long week interviewing what you thought were worthwhile candidates, whittled it down to a few fantastic prospects and offered a second interview. After a few more in-depth questions, you know you have found the perfect person for the position. But what if they reject your offer?
Job offer letters are often thrown together at the last minute, but they play a fundamental role in the lengthy recruitment process. Just when you thought the hiring procedure was over you still need to put time and effort into creating a job offer letter that they’ll never refuse.
The job offer letter can work in two ways – either you will solidify your existing relationship with the candidate and generate excitement for their new position. Or you’ll damage the candidate’s experience thus far and instil confusion in them about the position they have applied for.
Stand out from the crowd
Have you ever considered the candidate that’s perfect for your company, might be perfect for someone else? You need to create a job offer letter that stands out from the crowd. Tell them how amazing they are, congratulate them and let them know they will fit right in within your organisation. Don’t hold back.
Not only will you want to congratulate them and make them feel excited about the offer, but you will want to answer any crucial questions they may have clearly and concisely. The job offer letter is the perfect opportunity to clarify expectations and ensure everyone is on the same page.

How to make the job offer
After you have created your offer letter, you’ll want to send it out as soon as possible. In today’s competitive market, the candidates you want are often wanted by someone else too. Move quickly and the candidate will respect your efforts.
If the candidate accepts, great! Finalise all the job details and forward on any documentation they need to fill out or start-up packs if necessary. Discuss salary and working conditions before finalising an employment agreement.
If the candidate declines, you should follow up with a candidate experience survey, to find out why. They might be able to share some relevant information that could help you in the future.
