I work as a front-end designer and developer for the e-commerce department of a retail giant. It's not exactly the work I want to be doing, so I've been taking on freelance clients, one of which is an agency in the area.
They approached me with an unsolicited proposition last week, saying they are interested in bringing me on their team as a developer/designer hybrid role (this was an unsolicited offer, and worth mentioning that I'm not actively searching for a new job).
I came in last week and discussed what I thought they needed to know in order to make me an offer — what I can bring to the table, how much I need to make, when I can start, and what kind of projects I'll be working on. It was far outside the realm of an interview, and I left thinking they were going to get back to me with an offer in a few days.
It has now been a week, and although I've reached out to my contact with questions regarding the ongoing freelance project I'm working on with them, I haven't heard anything more about their decision to make me an offer.
How should I word an email to the company to inquire about their progress on making me an offer? In typical interview fashion, I wouldn't want to be too persistent, but this is an unusual case in that they approached me for the job, discussed terms of hire, then vanished.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
