I was offered a position through a recruiter and the company is now doing a background check. I haven’t received a written offer letter or started any paperwork.

After receiving the offer I turned down a final interview with another company. I’ve also been invited to another interview with someone else.

I don’t feel comfortable continuously turning down interviews if I don’t have a written offer or started any paperwork. I want to email HR about the process but what should I say?

Definitely request an offer letter, it’s not official until it’s in writing. Also keep interviewing and see what other offers you get

Never stop interviewing. Even if you already have a job. It’s a great way to see what you’re worth and not get into lowball offers.

I made a similar mistake. I'd accepted a job, but my first couple of weeks didn't go very well and worried I needed to quit. I'd cancelled a couple of interviews when I'd accepted the job and I regretted that decision. It taught me you shouldn't stop interviewing just because you've accepted the job. Wait until you are sure the new job is everything you hope it will be. (In my case, it worked out okay and the job ended up being fine, but it could have gone badly.)

I think it is appropriate to contact HR and ask when you can expect the offer. Tell them you'd like an update so you can give notice and/or start making arrangements for the transition.

I think it's pretty common for an offer letter to come after the background check, but even still I agree with other posters to keep interviewing elsewhere... Offers fall through all the time unfortunately

Boss said significant improvement is needed by next Friday. Looking for tips, suggestions, should he already start looking elsewhere? He loves this new job.

Why do companies hire and pay bigger on those new hires then do transition trainings instead of increasing the pay a bit of their experienced employees? This is just a thought that’s been circling on my mind since I started working in IT Software(8yrs). Btw, I’m now about to join my 5th company and main reason for leaving is low increase so I guess I benefited on the ‘higher pay’ part :) I am just curious of the reasons of the IT companies… Any thoughts?
