I realise that I have done something stupid. After three rounds of interviews, I was offered a job over the phone. I was thrilled and excited as this is my dream job and I made a LOT of efforts in preparing the interviews. During the interview, I told the company that my notice period is a month.
A week ago, the hiring manager called and said I got the job and told me the start date is exactly in a month’s time. The hiring manager said he wanted to let me know asap so that I can hand in my notice as quick as possible in order to start the new job on time. He also said this has definitely been confirmed so don’t worry. Here goes the stupid part – I handed in my notice on the very next day so everyone in the company knows I am leaving in a month. It has been a week I still haven’t received a written offer so I emailed the hiring manager at 10 am this morning and haven’t heard anything back after COB. I have read some posts online and see some verbal offers can be rescinded. I start getting worried now and regret what I have done. Should I tell the hiring manager that my status or is it going to look like I am putting too much pressure to him and maybe he is really just busy preparing the documents? What should I do next?
