I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter. I'm a coach who helps people professionally in
a number of different ways that can involve job search hiring more
effectively managing and leading all sorts of workplace related issues and
someone wants to know whether or not it's normal for a firm to insist upon you
accepting their verbal offer before giving you one in writing. What I find in the
u.s. is yes it is normal why because you're asking them to do something extra
when you might not want to accept the offer anyway so understand they were
also concerned and this is the bigger of the two factors they don't want you
taking the offer letter and start shopping it around to other people
unless you're prepared to say yes as a result they've got a few reasons for
insisting upon this and you have the opportunity if the offer letter says
something that contradicts what we've been told verbally to turn down the
offer there's no real commitment until you have the offer letter whose the
verbal offer is not real until it's in writing so don't worry about this if you
want to say yes to an offer do it and then say before I give notice I have to
get a copy of the offer letter because that's my protection and that's a good
one I haven't said that by email is a. PDF or some other way in order to
confirm the terms that you're being hired under so I hope you found this
