Offer a letter itself is a letter stating a company’s interest in using someone’s services. If approved, further discussions will take place to sign the contract.

“We have sent offer letter and the person concerned has signed. But keep in mind offer letter this is not a contract, even if it contains some details that are also in the contract, ”said Ruddy.
