I received an offer over the phone for an internship out of state. I was told my salary, start date, and last day to accept the offer.

I know the company provides housing assistance, so I asked if could get any help with moving. The HR lady said she can do that for me.

It has been two weeks since I spoke to her and the last day to accept the offer is in a week.

Would it make sense to email the HR lady and ask when I should be expecting the letter? Or should I just remain patient?

  • @JeffQuick Did you post the right link? I'm struggling to see how that question is related at all. – David K Oct 19 '16 at 16:20
  • Sorry I'm struggle with the english language at times, maybe not. – user49733 Oct 19 '16 at 16:29
  • Turns out HR forgot to sent me the email and my deadline to accept has been extended. – generic_user Oct 19 '16 at 17:25

It not only makes sense, it's necessary.

If you don't have an offer in writing, you don't have an offer.

Simply state that you need something in writing to respond with acceptance.
