After accepting offer, what to do?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Sep 22, 2017 6:09 pm

Hi,

I tried searching for answer on my own but it only had answers about reneging an offer. So my question is, do you just sit around after you accept the offer? The HR Personnel sent me the offer letter and I sent my acceptance to the HR only. Should I let the attorney who called for my offer to let him know that I accepted the offer? What was your experience?

Thanks in advance.

Probably should just crack a brew and spark a j.

Maybe email the attorney who called you with your offer and just say "I'm psyched." But not necessary.

Send a gift basket to the attorney who interviewed you with a note that says "I owe you one."

True, the other attorneys from the callback will feel left out.

Send 4 baskets.

Yes. And instead of a note that says "I owe you one," I suggest something along the lines of "I will never forget what you've done for me," undersigned by a signature in blood.

If you don't get any swag, it's not too late to renege OP.
