Client reached out and asked if I would be interested in joining his team last month. Said I’ll follow up in a week and didn’t. Is it ok to reach out a month later to see if the offer is still on?

Late post but I’m thankful for the Controller who made the big4transparency.com website! It may have helped a few souls realize they’re underpaid and looked for greener pastures which then contributed to the movement in the market and therefore the firms’ drive to make compensation competitive.
