Sample letter to a job offer, negotiating a higher salary or better working conditions

Sample letter to a job offer, negotiating a higher salary or better working conditions.


I am Rajesh Dixit. I received an offer letter to join your organization as the General Manager, Operation & Maintenance at the Corporate Office in the NCR.

I am glad to learn that I’m invited to join a company of great repute and recognition in the industry. Also, as of my limited knowledge that I’ve gained from my colleagues who have been a part of the organization in the past, I understand that they have great things to say about the work culture and employee welfare policies taken up by the company. As you might understand, these are some of the major concerns of someone of my age and expertise.

While I’m very happy to be given the opportunity to work with the best in the industry, I’d like to let you know of the salary expectation on my end. As per the Offer Letter, I’m appointed at an annual pay of 20lakhs. However, this is much lower to my expectation which is at least a 25lakhs p.a., which accounts to a 28 per cent hike on my current salary structure. As an industry expert with as long as 13 years of experience in the Operations domain, I believe that the expected remuneration is justified, to say the least.

In this regard, I’d request you to reconsider your decision regarding the same and revert back at the earliest.

Hope to hear from you soon.

    I am ABC, M. Pharma graduate from Delhi University. I received a job offer letter from your organization for the post of Zone Manager, to lead the North Zone offices of your company. I am glad to receive the offer and was going through the terms and conditions of the contract just now.

    I am currently posted as Chief Zone Supervisor at MNO Pharmaceutical, and am looking for a better proposal. I understand that the job demands frequent travel to analyse and control all the units, as I am performing a similar profile now. The job would not be a difficult one to handle with my 7 years’ experience in the same profile.

    You have offered me a package of 10 Lac with performance based incentives. My current CTC is 10.25 Lac and I am getting good perks at my current job. I definitely expect a CTC around 11 Lac with the incentives. Also I look forward to the cab for official use; and the travel fare at official expense. During the travel, I hope to get the company guest house booked pre-hand, rather than expecting me to wander around to check for an accommodation.

    Kindly go through my proposal and intimate me for your final offer. I will be happy to join hands with your organization with a better deal. Looking forward to a positive response.

    Thanking you.
