Meme You're Hired .jpg


A written response from a business or company letting a job applicant know that he or she has been accepted, is most appreciated. Letters eliminate doubt and confusion and a letter accepting a job applicant usually clarifies the details about where and when to report to work and what to expect on the first day. Sometimes, it might even include information such as available lodging in the area and other helpful tips for unique situations. This type of letter presents an opportunity to make a good impression. It will promote job moral, and most importantly, it will help the new employee feel comfortable and thankful to have been accepted into the company, or to have been selected for a position. It is a great way to congratulate the new recruit.

I got an offer letter from a company. They asked me to join as soon as possible but in previous organization notice period is 30 days. What should be the reply, please assist me. Thanks

I am actually writing 3 letters, one to accept students who have passed a portfolio review, one to provisionally accept some, and one telling students that they didn't pass?

A portfolio review is held each year to determine which students will go on to the upper levels of our graphic design course. I want to say more than just "congratulations, your are accepted into the program to the people who passed. The provisional letter will tell students that their portfolios were accepted, but they will not be allowed to start the program until their GPA meets our 2.5 minimum standard. Lastly, I want to encourage the students who did not pass. Some will be allowed to retake the review in another year, but at least one has done it before and this was his last chance. Thanks for your insights.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

To add more to the acceptance letter other than congratulations, take the time to point out what was impressive in their portfolio. Showing that personal touch will encourage the students to work harder because you noticed them and did not send out a blanket letter to all the applicants.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

The provisional students should get tips on how to bring up their GPA higher. You can use general tips to make this letter a blanket letter for all the students if you keep it generic to save time.

Those students that did not pass is unfortunate. Perhaps send an example from a winning portfolio so that they can know what to try to improve on for their next chance. To the one student who will no longer be able to try out for the review, thank him for his dedication and offer a little extra encouragement in his future endeavors.
