I received an email offering me an internship with a software company. I accepted the offer and they followed up the email asking for my address so they can draft a contract and I gave them my address. It has been a week since this last email and I have heard nothing, two days ago (Monday evening) I sent an email asking a question about the position (and also just in the hopes to get a response so that it would settle my nerves), but they haven't yet replied to that email either.

I want to know if this is normal behaviour and I have nothing to worry about, or if not what should I do? Should I call them? (I have the phone number of the person I have been corresponding with via email as they interviewed me on the phone previously), email HR directly? Just need a little advice as I am new to this whole thing.

This is usually not normal, call them up now. (actually you should have done it on the 3rd day of silence itself, but better late than never, do it now without any further delay).

  • I called and got no answer so left an embarrassingly worried sounding voicemail saying that I'm just checking in and would appreciate a call back.

  • @Retsek it would also help if you could call them again in a while...
