Writing a Good Job Acceptance Letter (with Sample)

After you have written numerous cover letters and resumes, the most exciting letter to write is the job acceptance letter. With today’s job market being so difficult, it feels great to write a letter accepting a long awaited position. Even if a company calls you to extend a job offer, it is still proper to write a letter graciously accepting their offer. 

Not only does a letter of acceptance make a good impression on the company about you as a person, but it shows your gracious attitude. Sure you already have impressed them enough to get the job, but you haven’t actually worked yet, so this shows your tenacious nature. 

Authorization for medical treatment for a child or other individual can only be given by the lawful guardian of the person. This type of letter may also be given to a specific doctor at an assisted living facility where an elderly person resides who is under the care of a legal guardian. 

This letter is usually written for an individual who is at least 18 years of age, and it is not recommended to write an authorization letter to a school or day care center because the legal guardian may not have control over which person gives authorization for treatment. If the legal guardian has a preferred local physician, a copy of the letter can be given to his or her office. 

If there are any treatments that are not acceptable to the legal guardian, these need to be mentioned in the letter. It is also recommended that the letter have an expiration date. 

If a child is staying with a grandparent or other relative who is not the legal guardian, a medical authorization letter is needed. The parents should not assume that just because their child is staying with a relative, that relative can authorize medical treatment.

If the temporary caregiver doesn’t have written permission to authorize treatment, the child may have to wait until the legal guardian returns to get proper treatment. If the treatment is urgent this could endanger the life of the child.
