Hello Cindy: Congratulations on accepting your conditional job offer! If you haven't heard back from the recruiter, I would definitely send a friendly reminder and be sure to include the date that the job was offered to you. Always mention how excited you are to be starting your new position. On these types of emails, it has always seemed to me to be great to see dates included and always ask if there is anything else that they may need from you. Depending on the type of job, for example if a call center, they may be trying to fill a class which would cause a delay in your start date. If not a call center, then they may also be waiting on background checks, employment verification, reference checks, etc. Don't be discouraged! If for some reason you still do not hear back, then call the recruiter directly and be sure to include a phone number that you can be reached at. Best of luck to you!


Kindest Regards,

Melida Alaniz

Thank you Melida! I've sent a follow up email to them! C L.

Start by thanking them for the offer and let them know you are excited about joining their organization and are committed to addressing their mission.  Then, as a reminder, include contact information along with date of interview.  End with another thanks and looking forward to this great opportunity.


All the best to you and congrats on the job offer!

Hi, I have been in the same situation a couple of times, and you certainly think several times whether to write or not. I recommend that you write after a reasonable time, tell them that you are very excited to start this new experience, and that you would like to have a little more information regarding the next steps, in order to organize your current situation.
Recognize that these processes can take time and that you are attentive to their response.
Finally, reiterate that you are very happy to start working with them.
