Reaffirming interest in offer?

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Aug 13, 2019 7:34 pm

I just received an offer from a firm tonight. I know that I have to reaffirm my interest within 14 days, but is it okay to do that asap? For example, can I respond to the offer email with a reaffirmation of interest? Or should I just respond saying thanks, and then reaffirm in ~1 to 2 weeks?

You should reaffirm closer to the 14 days.

Congrats on the offer!

Thank you so much! Should I respond to the email? I already said thanks to the hiring partner over the phone, but the email is from the recruiting coordinator.

You can fire off a quick "thank you!" in response, but if it's already been 24+ hours since you got the email, I'd lean in favor of simply not responding. In any case the recruiting coordinator won't hold a lack of a "thank you" response against you.
