This question already has an answer here:
I have received a job offer via email. The email contained a formal contract of employment signed by the owner of the company. I have accepted the offer; ie, signed it, scanned it and sent it back as an attachment to my email. The email confirms I have accepted the offer and thanked them, etc..
I haven't received a confirmation that the email was received (I was silly and didn't place a Delivery Status Notification on the email). It's been almost 24 hours. My email communication has been with the HR/Secretary all throughout the process and thats who I emailed the acceptance and contract to. The job position is Software Engineer.
Do you think its worthwhile emailing them to confirm the email was received etc? I dont want to sound pestering but then again I dont want to turn up in 3 weeks and say "I'm here to start" and they are like "You never got back to us?". Any advice on wording this email? Should it be a long winded formal email or a simple one line "Hi X, just confirming you received my email and attachments?"?
