Have you ever received an offer letter from a company to which you have applied? It is an exhilarating feeling knowing that all the hard work you put in your education, interview, documents, and your career, as a whole, has finally paid off. Despite the pleasure the offer letter from the company has brought, it might end up disappointing you and this arises in cases where you have been offered a very low salary as compared with your expectations.

Do not be ruffled by the situation, it is your right to negotiate the salary estimate given to you. The best way to do so is by framing a salary negotiation letter in which you should put forward your views about the salary and can write why you deserve a better figure.

Try to find out how much salary the other candidates with similar abilities and experiences as you are being paid. To get a better idea of framing the ideal letter here is a sample salary negotiation before joining letter for your convenience.

Dear Mr. Graves,

I am extremely pleased on receiving an offer letter from your esteemed company XYZ Pvt. Limited. The name and reputation of your company goes beyond our national boundaries, and I am proud to be a part of such a prestigious company. All the hard work that I have poured in throughout my career has finally paid off and I will certainly be grateful to the management who has hired me.

I am comfortable with the company policies, rules, and regulations, and I shall appreciate it further if you would consider revising my compensation package. I am well aware of the fact that many candidates will do anything to be employed in a company like yours but if my compensation package could be increased by a margin of 35%, I believe it would do justice to my achievements, skills, and experience.

I solemnly thank you for taking out the time to go through this letter and hope you will get in touch with me as soon as possible through the details mentioned above.

Yours Sincerely,

Randolph M. Graves
