Responding to a verbal job offer over the phone

A large number of employers will offer your the job first by phone call. You do not have to immediately indicate your acceptance of this verbal offer unless you are 100% sure you want the job. If you receive a verbal offer, it is best to ask for it in writing so that you can consider it in full before you make your final decision.

For example: :

"Thank you for this wonderful opportunity, I am honored to be offered the position. In order to properly and fully review the offer  I would appreciate it if you could confirm the details in writing as soon as possible.

It is advisable not to respond formally in writing until you have received the job offer in writing and have thoroughly reviewed it. Even if you have verbally accepted the job it is important for the employer to formally confirm the details of the offer and for you to officially indicate your acceptance of the terms and conditions of employment in writing. This avoids confusion down the line.

Once you have received written confirmation of the job offer, acknowledge your receipt of the offer and, once you have made a final decision, send a formal acceptance using the job offer acceptance email sample.
