Dear Ms. Franklin:
I was thrilled to be offered the Senior Civil Engineer position with Planet Electric. I know I can make a significant contribution to the organization’s growth over both the short and long term.
I carefully reviewed the terms of the offer and, with a few minor adjustments, find them acceptable. To wit:
I have to note the base salary is five percent lower than I expected. I thought it was understood what I was looking for since the initial interview. Also, my research shows what I was asking for was a comparable number for the regional market and my experience.
I am willing to consider a compromise of an additional two and a half percent.
While I understand there is a ceiling on your relocation packages, your offer falls far below my estimates. Please review the attached scope of work for moving my family from San Francisco to Plainville. I do appreciate the company’s policy in this matter and I am willing to cover the overages upfront but I propose we negotiate some method of reimbursement as it was my understanding Planet Electric covered all relocation expenses.
Outside of the above mentioned issues, I find all other points of the offer agreeable. If we can settle on these fine points, I am ready to start as early as September 12th.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
