I recently interviewed with a big software company (USA) and got an offer. This is my first job after my master studies. During my interview, the manager provided a high level description of the project and it is interesting to me. When I requested more details about the project during my interview, the manager told me that it is confidential and she cannot reveal more details at that point of time. I have accepted the offer and will join the company in a couple of months. Currently I am spending time with my parents and friends.
However, I feel that if I know more details about the project such as exact problem they are solving, programming languages they use etc., then I could spend sometime on these technologies before joining the company. I believe that this preparation helps me to speedup my learning process at my first job and can impress my future manager. However, I am a bit hesitant to send an e-mail about this because I fear that my boss might think that I am unnecessarily proactive or this action would increase his expectations on my performance.
Is it a good idea to send an e-mail to my future manager and request more details about the project? If so, what are the things I should be careful in approaching her for this. I appreciate your help and guidance. Thank you.
I think that this question is different from How to ask for more details about the job before applying?
