    Re: What is the difference between appointment letter and Joining letter?

    Hi student
    **appointment letter would be addressed to a candidate to join the organization and accept the terms and conditions.
    * but the joining letter specified at the time of interview with the interviewer.
    *This would indicate the date of joining, post, dept., package, payroll and rules and regulations briefed up. Joining letter may be this type:
    ______________ (Name and address of the recipient)
    ______________ (Date)
    Subject: EMPLOYMENT JOINING LETTER
    Dear ___________
    This letter contains (these words With reference to your interview you had with us, we are pleased to appoint you as post......).
    *Appointment means date,time venue,and city.
    *joining letter means that you get sure job of same appointment.
    Thankyou

    hello....
    let me very clear to you friend...
    appointment letter is given by company when you selected by them for a particular job...
    and in this they will mention about your salary, your job profile and everything whatever is needed for you...
    and joining letter means that you have joined the company this letter includes that you have joined the organisation...
    now you are a member of organization...
    thanks....

    Re: What is the difference between appointment letter and Joining letter?

    Appointment letter is issued on behalf of the employer mentioning date,payscale/status etc to candidate to join in the company.first appointment letter is issued.

    When a candidate receive the appointment letter then he does the second action that he submits joining letter.

    So here meaning of appointment letter and joining letter differs and action is separate.

    Thank you,

    Re: What is the difference between appointment letter and Joining letter?

    Dear Aspirant,

    It is very good that you have noticed two familiar words.You will have to come-across later in your life.Both are different as follows:-

    @Appointment letter is issued to the successful candidates by the Department/organisation/company in which pay scale and terms & coditions are mentioned.The services are governed by these things to the individuals.It is issued after completion of all steps for selection for the job i.e.after passing in written test.inteview,group discussion,if any,verification of certificates & testimonials and going through medical test.

    @Joining letter is given at the time of joining in the organisation concerned by the candidate as per the direction given in the appointment letter.On acceptance of the joining letter,some times one letter is also issued by the authority concerned to the candidate.After submitting the joining letter ,the candidate becomes employee of the organisation concerned & starts working as per direction of the authority concerned.

    Thanks.

    Re: What is the difference between appointment letter and Joining letter?

    hello aspirant

    If u are selected in the interview then they will give u an appointment letter

    So appointment letter is a letter given to i when u are selected

    Joining letter is a letter given to u which has the date u have to join that Company

    so the date which u have to join will be there in the Joining letter

    the joining letter is also called as Call letter

    So that is the difference between Appointment letter and Joining letter

    Re: What is the difference between appointment letter and Joining letter?

    Appointment letter is letter that explains all the terms and conditions including salary ,leaves etc for an employee after being selected for the job.
    If the employee accepts and fulfills all the terms and condition of the appointment letter than the joining letter is given to the employee mentioning the date from which he has joined the company..it can be seen as the letter that officially declares and includes the employee in the company

    Re: What is the difference between appointment letter and Joining letter?

    hi friend,

    There is a lot of difference between the appointment letter and the offer letter.

    But there is no difference between the appointment letter and the joining letter.


    Differences between the offer letter and the appointment letter:-

    OFFER LETTER
    :-

    1. In offer letter the following things are mentioned:-

    a. salary.

    b. probation period.

    c. allowances.

    d. basic pay and grade pay.

    e. company terms and conditions.


    APPOINTMENT LETTER:-

    Appointment letter indicates that it is a real confirmation and both the company and the employee are committing for the terms and conditions specified in the letter, they both should abide by the rules.

    There is no authenticity for offer letter.

    company can deny to issue appointment letter even after issuing offer letter.


    thanking you.

    Re: What is the difference between appointment letter and Joining letter?

    HI,

    All most all the companies are issuing Offer letter which consists of date of join and details of necessary documents and certificates which new employees needs to submit during the time of reporting.

    After verifying your certificates and documents and it is satisfactory Company will issue appointment letter.


    These three terms are often confused:

    An appointment letter is written to inform a person that he or she has been selected for a particular position in an organization.

    A business appointment letter is written to schedule a meeting for business purposes. You should mention the purpose for the meeting or any other event in the letter. Also, please ensure to describe your expectations from the meeting. Try to keep the language very sophisticated and tone of letter cordial if you are seeking an appointment for job interview. Please ensure that you briefly mention your past experience, qualifications, and other relevant information.

    A letter of appointment or letter of administration assigns estate executors or successors. They are also known as Letters Testamentary, giving legal authority to engage in probate actions on behalf of the deceased and/or the family.

    HOPE THIS IS HELPFUL!!!!!
    GOOD LUCK!!

    Re: What is the difference between appointment letter and Joining letter?

    Appointment letter is issued on behalf of the leader mentioning date, pay scale/status etc to candidate to affix within the company. Initial appointment letter is issued.

    once a candidate receives the appointment letter then he will the second action that he submits change of integrity letter.

    thus here that means of appointment letter and change of integrity letter differs and action is separate.

    Appointment letter is issued to the prosperous candidates by the Department/organization/company during which pay scale and terms & conditions are mentioned. The services are ruled by this stuff to the people. Itís issued when completion of all steps for choice for the work i.e. when passing in written take a look at. Interview, give-and-take, if any, verification of certificates & take a look antimonies and browsing medical test.

    Change of integrity letter is given at the time of change of integrity within the organization involved by the candidate as per the direction given within the appointment letter. On acceptance of the change of integrity letter, some times one letter is additionally issued by the authority involved to the candidate. When submitting the change of integrity letter, the candidate becomes worker of the organization involved & starts operating as per direction of the authority involved.

    Appointment letter is letter that explains all the terms and conditions together with regular payment, leaves etc for associate worker when being hand-picked for the work.
    If the worker accepts and fulfills all the terms and condition of the appointment letter than the change of integrity letter is given to the worker mentioning the originate that he has joined the corporate. It is seen because the letter that formally declares and includes the worker within the company.

    Re: What is the difference between appointment letter and Joining letter?

    Hi. Appointment letter and Joining letter are both two different things.

    When you get selected by a company they give you an appointment letter to fill.

    After filling this letter whatever formalities (as stated in the appointment letter or otherwise) are there like medical checkup etc. you have to complete them and then the letter which you receive is the joining letter asking you to join on a particular date.


    So basically appointment letter is given before completing all formalities and joining letter after all the formalities have been completed.


    Hoping i have solved your query. Best of luck. Thanks

    Re: What is the difference between appointment letter and Joining letter?

    Hello friend

    See the appointment letter is given to you on the day you are selected for that company or the day after that via email. It is just to make you sure that yes we have selected to for our company and we are happy to have you.

    After that when the joining letter comes they make it completely sure that you will be joining our company on this date and become a part of our company plus start your professional career.

    The appointment letter is also called as offer letter. Even if you get the joining letter the decision is yours if you want to join the company or not because you can always get a better offer at any point of time

    Hope you are clear about this.

    Re: What is the difference between appointment letter and Joining letter?

    Hi,

    After you have accepted the offer and confirm your date of joining to company, company may issue a joining letter which contains your date of joining with list of document which you need to present or submit on day you join and report office. Once you join, submit all required documents and declarations, company issues an appointment letter with your details, date of joining and role on which you have joined company.

    Re: What is the difference between appointment letter and Joining letter?

    Joining letter is mainly referred to the offer letter. It's issued if you get selected in the interview/selection process. The company has provided you the offer whether you want to join the company or not. The date of joining and other important details are mentioned in it. It will act as a proof when you went to join the company. The appointment letter is issued after the joining letter. It's generally provided on the date ofjoining the company. All the details like salary, post, designation, leaves etc are mentioned in it. The salary will be provided from the date mentioned in the appointment letter .

    Re: What is the difference between appointment letter and Joining letter?

    Hi.. Appointment letter and joining letter are certainly two different things and there is varied difference between them..

    Appointment letter is given to you after you get selected in an interview.. So you basically fill it up so you can show them that you have the job..

    Then after that you have to complete certain formalities to get into the job like health checkup, medical, background check may also be done..

    After you have done these and passed through each then you sign the joining letter asking you to join on so and so date..

    I hope you understand it now.. Best of luck.. Thanks
