Confirm the vacancy terms and conditions.
Mention that you understand the salary amount, benefits and work schedule.
Thank the company for offering you the position.
Reinforce to them through a professionally written letter that they have made the right choice.
Agree and accept the start date.
Acknowledge your responsibilities and obligations to the company.
