The day you receive a job offer for a position that you really want is a terrific one! It's a good idea to submit a written acceptance letter after receiving an offer, even if you spoke with the hiring manager and indicated that you want the job. This is a good way to formalize your acceptance and to confirm your understanding of the terms of the offer. If you need to negotiate any of the terms, you may also want to submit a letter signifying your intent to accept if agreement can be reached.
