For Potential Employees

You are under employed, or need a job. You have been to the local job centers and you have seen many jobs that you can apply for. However, they are requesting a reference from you as a job seeker with the company. You have a list of places to apply to and you need to come up with an introduction and a summary of your experience in the field you are applying for.

Job Hiring Letter Tips

The letter should look professional. There are many services that can help you along with your job letter on the internet. First make sure your name and address along with phone number for contact, and e mail address if you have one. This should be on the left hand side of the page. Next is the greeting; if you know a specific person to name, then their name goes on the same line as the greeting. After the greeting, go to the next line and begin your job hiring letter.

After the greeting, you should state your reason for the letter, and describe your experience in what and where you have worked for previously. If you are still in the process of job negotiations, put your requests here. Fill in the dates and contact information so your perspective employer can contact the references in your job hiring letter should he or she choose to. If the contact you put down is one that has closed and cannot be contacted, state it in the job hiring letter.

It is important to make sure you use the correct spelling and punctuation in your letter. A program that is helpful is MS Word and can help correct the mistakes in spelling and grammar. If you do not have Word as a program check the internet for a similar program that you can use to write up your hiring letter. List your education and job qualifications. If you are a high school grad, or college, you should state that information as well, mention any military experience as well.

It is important that you double check your job hiring letter to see that everything you need to inform a future employer about. Name, address and all ways you can be contacted: phone, cell phone, e-mail all are important. If there is one that is used more than the others, position it first in the list. Close the hiring letter and send it e mail, or standard mail depending on the contact information that has been posted to reply for the job.

For employers

In your hiring letters as an employer, make sure to include these details. State the position title that they got hired for and the department they will be working at. Will they be working full time or part time? When do they start working? How much will their salary be, including how often they get paid and when is their first pay. Make sure to include their company benefits, health benefits and other related benefits.

Put all this on the company letterhead and make it official. This is can considered a legal document and whatever you write on it must be sufficiently satisfied for the hired employee. For the personal touch in your job hiring letter, you can state your enthusiasm for them as a new addition to the company. You can also write about the reasons why they were chosen. If your company has an introduction packet for them to read through, make sure to reference that in your hiring letter.

At the end of the job hiring letter, write down the instructions for them to follow in order to complete this employment. Inform them to sign the letter if they accept the position and return it by a specific date. Leave a contact number and name for further questions.
