If they give you a verbal offer, it’s because the position itself is approved and typically, the people you’ve interviewed with have the thumbs up. HR, legal, finance, background checks, references and other internal procedures depending on the agency is the next step before you get the offer letter. Typically it should only be between one to two weeks. Typically

My current job ghosted me for two weeks before calling with an offer out of the blue. Said it just took forever to get internal approvals.

3.5 months - I got verbal confirmation on the spot during the interview and even a welcome message on a Saturday afternoon from a CD I haven't even met (they seemed very eager to have me) - but then it took another 2.5 until I actually started working there. This was pre-covid and I was unemployed so 6 months seemed like an eternity. But I really enjoyed working there.

Could be a few days/week depending on internal discussions and sometimes a backlog. Typically aim for same/next day when we can.

Thinking about buying a single family home for ~600k in the next year or so OR pushing it out an additional year to get a multi family for ~1m. Thoughts? Current HHI ~175k, $40k student loan debt ($200 monthly) no other debts (credit card/car etc) Project HHI for option two ~210k. Let’s assume I can save 75k for DP for option 1 and 150k for option 2.

Anyone have experience with a Base + RSU only offer from AWS? The base very small, with a 2 year “cash sign on” that brings TC back up to a reasonable level. But after 2 years, your RSUs are fully vested, and TC = Base + RSUs. No additional detail is provided on the value of the RSUs… except for a “Target Total Comp”. Thoughts on this setup?

Accenture hired me for a role that I don’t think I’m qualified for? Looking at the job req page, I only tick 1-2 of the bullets (out of 10).
