Consider how you will send the offer to your chosen candidate and what will constitute the original document. Will the offer be written out in an email, sent as a PDF attachment or shared through a secure link?
Accepting the offer
Make sure to communicate to the candidate how they should return the accepted offer to you. Can they reply to your email with a written acceptance, or do you require a digital signature?
If a signature is required, consider how you would like to receive it in digital form. Some solutions for formalizing digital agreements include requesting a signed and scanned copy of a job offer, using e-signature software, incorporating an “I accept” tick box on the offer letter or having the candidate type their name in an email or form to indicate a contractual agreement.
