Decoding your job offer letter

After receiving a verbal job offer, seek a written confirmation outlining the role, schedule, salary, and benefits. It should detail position, duties, pay rate, classification (exempt/nonexempt), additional compensation, benefits, company policies, and at-will employment terms. Check for contingencies like background checks. A response deadline will be indicated. Review and understand before committing.
