Last week Monday, I was verbally told that I was chosen for a role within a moderately sized company (7000 employees). The HR employee told me on the same phone call that I would receive an offer letter via email within the next 48 hours.
After 4 days past, I reached out to the HR employee to just follow up on the conversation via email on Friday morning. I have not received any sort of response from her.
I understand that things come up (maybe she’s on vacation and forgot to tell me, she is sick, still trying to work out the contract, etc). I would like some advice on how to approach this going forward. I don’t want to continue to be a bother, but I have other offers to consider. Should I reach out to other HR employees, of which I have no connection with? Or should I continue to hold out and hope the HR employee gets back to me soon?
Again, I want to emphasize that I understand things come up in the workplace. I wouldn’t be worried if the HR rep hadn’t told me “you’ll receive the offer letter within 48 hours.” I appreciate any advice and or guidance. Thanks.
