How to Respond to a Job Offer by Email

Have you found a job offer that interests you? Well, if you are thinking of responding to the advert by email, do not miss our tips on how to do it in the best way possible. Please note that your email is the first information and impression the company has about you, so make sure you write your email address correctly. At OneHowTo we explain how to respond to a job offer by email.

Steps to follow:

First of all, do not forget to attach an updated CV with your cover letter. Also, before responding to a job by email, we recommend composing a draft in a Word document, just in case you click send by mistake before having finished the email. Make sure it does not contain spelling mistakes and read it several times.


Although it may seem a minor detail, remember to check that you have not mistyped your email address or the contact details of the company. Do not ruin your email application with small examples of forgetfulness.


Take your time to think about what you would like to write in the email. If you have any doubts, you can let other people take a look to find out their opinion. And do not forget another important detail in your email application: the subject. You should briefly explain the content of your email. However, if you also have a contact in the company, you can specify the subject as being for the attention of a certain employee or position.


And now comes the hardest part: writing the response to a job offer with an email. It is important to be brief, direct, clear and concise. Make it clear why you are the perfect candidate for the position and why you want to work for the company. Do your qualities, skills and professional experience match the requirements in the offer? In that case, do not forget to highlight them in your email. Remember to quote the job you're applying for and end your reply with a request for a future meeting.


Before submitting an application by email, we encourage you to learn about the company. Perhaps the information you find can help you to answer the question of why you want to work there and what you could bring to the company. The ideal thing is to stand out in a positive way compared to the other candidates.


Have you checked everything several times and are satisfied? Then copy and paste your response in an email and attach your CV. And if you want, you can also include a cover letter. However, before submitting your application by email, do not forget to check that you have correctly written the e-mail address and subject.
