In some firms, when negotiating with the applicant, a special document is used -job offer. What is this document? Why does he need an employer and a job seeker? These questions are answered by the Country of Soviets.

In translation from English job offer isjob offer. This document regulates the relationship of the employee and the employer from the time of employment and is signed earlier than the labor contract. In the West, the signing of a job offer is a common practice, we only have this document signed by a few companies that focus on Western standards. Why is this done?

Usually, during any interview, it turns out not only the level of professionalism of the applicant and his compliance with the vacant position, but alsoworking conditions in the company. all the same during the interview, not only the employer evaluates the applicant, but the applicant decides whether he wants to work in this company. But no one is immune from misunderstanding: the employer could incorrectly explain the working conditions, or the competitor misunderstood them. In order to avoid misunderstanding, the employer suggests signing a job offer.

In fact, this document stipulates in writing the conditions of work that the employer told during the interview: the description of the position, the basic conditions, the date of employment, the nuances of the probation period, the duration of the contract, the amount of salaries and compensation, social benefits, etc.Job offer is more informational in nature and has no legal force.

Why do I need a job offer? For the applicant - this is an indicator that he is going to work in a solid company that is guided by Western business standards.In addition, it is a guarantee that the expectations of the applicant and the promises of the recruiter will not disperse with the reality. True, the RF Customs Code does not regulate the written offer of work signed before the conclusion of the employment contract, but this is better than nothing. In a controversial situation (for example, in case of refusal to sign an employment contract), the job offer can be considered by the court as evidence.

For the employer, the job offer isguarantee that the applicant has agreed to work conditions and will begin to perform duties on the due date. In the practice of HR managers, it is not uncommon for a candidate to reach the final selection stage, he seems to have already agreed to work, and then at the last moment refused or simply did not go to work without explaining the reasons. In this case, the job offer will, as it were, cement the oral agreement between the applicant and the employer, letting the competitor know that he has undertaken certain obligations and there is no turning back.

Uniform standard of registration job offer is not present. because this document has a semi-official character. Usually the employer, when drafting a job offer, is oriented to the applicant, trying to imagine that it is important for him to know about his new job. Most often the job offer is printed on a letterhead. It specifies the name of the post and the structural unit, the list of job responsibilities, the length of the probation period and its conditions, the amount of salary (including bonuses, bonuses, bonuses), social and compensation package, date of employment, etc. Later this information is duplicated in the employment contract.

But, as already mentioned above, in Russia, unlike in Western countries,formal legal force job offer does not have   - labor relations are established only by the employment contract. Job offer is a formal information document that does not guarantee that the applicant will actually go to work at the appointed time: both he and the employer have the right to refuse. But the job offer feedback is a blow to the reputation of both the employer and the applicant, and the reputation in the business world means a lot (although not everyone understands this).

So why do we need a job offer if it does not have legal force and does not give 100% guarantees?This document reduces the risk of mutual misunderstanding. gives an opportunity to speak on the merits and forms a positive image of the company-employer, demonstrating its high standards.
