How do you say you’ll think about a job offer?
Dear [Hiring Manager’s Name], [Thank the hiring manager for the offer. It’s important that they know you’re grateful for the offer and you want to seriously consider it. State your specific reason for asking for time to consider the offer and the date you’d like to give your response by.
Does a job offer mean you got the job?
Until you are holding a piece of paper in your hand with the job offer on it, including the salary and other details like the official start date, you do NOT have a new job. A verbal offer is excellent, and very promising, but, by itself, it is not a guarantee that you have a new job.
How do you gracefully reject a job offer?
Thank you very much for offering me the opportunity to work at [Company] as [Job Title]. After much deliberation, I will not be accepting the position, as it isn’t the right fit for my long-term career goals. I sincerely appreciate the offer and give you my best wishes in finding a suitable candidate for the position.
Is it bad to accept a job offer immediately?
While being respectful of the employer’s time, it is perfectly acceptable to take one to two business days to make sure you fully understand the offer. If they ask you to respond immediately, ask politely if you can have 24 hours to review the terms.
How long can you sit on a job offer?
Most job offers have an expiration date. Either the recruiter/employer will outright tell you over the phone or through email, or the job offer letter will specify a deadline. It’s usually one week after you get offered the job —that’s a standard time to “think it over” and come to a decision.
How long can you keep a job offer waiting?
Two weeks is standard. Some companies won’t require even that. Some will ask for more. If you can accommodate your former employer, you want to make your transition as smooth as possible.
Can you accept a job offer and then back out?
Can you back out of the job offer? Yes. Technically, anyone can turn down a job offer, back out of a job already started, or renege on an acceptance at any point. Most states operate with what is called “at will employment.” This means the employee and the employer are not in a binding contract.
How do you respond to a job offer question?
