Once a company says they are working on an offer for you, how long have you seen the actual, written offer take? I haven’t made a move in a long time so can’t even remember what this timeline is like. Imagine it might depend on salary/position, as well.

For me it took about four days from verbal offer to written offer. Nervewracking but sometimes places are a bit slow to gather paperwork especially if they are big and have a lot of layers

Interviewed for a Production Support Engineer role two days ago - went OK, was able to answer some questions and others that I couldn’t. The role was not posted yet on their site or LinkedIn at the time of me interviewing. Feedback from Manager was that I presented myself well and they would have to discuss as a team if they had the time to get me up to speed as there was a learning curve. Noticed yesterday morning the the role had been newly posted on LinkedIn (day after interview).

Interviewed (via Zoom) with an out of town firm about a possible lateral position in mid-March.

Assuming it goes well, is it appropriate to ask to fly down to meet others/ learn more given the passage of time?
