Was just offered a Job

ULWizULWiz Member Posts: 722
Ahhh i was just offered a job at a company called Coretech http://www.coretech.com. I will be delegating work on a contract with Johnson & Johnson. They offered me 17 a hour to start with promises of moving to the tech side where i would start at 20 a hour. I have not been in IT for about 5 years and recently started applying for jobs on monster and dice. I am currently in school getting my Bachelors in Science focusing on Network and Communications Management. So this was nice to get a offer to get back into the swing of things.

    I really hate this part, with my job offer at qwest I was told that HR would call me in 2-4 weeks with an offer, and its almost been 4 weeks. Wish they would just call, I feel like my life is on hold until it gets worked out.

    If they still haven't sent an offer in four weeks I would get back with them. Its never taken more than a week or two for me...

    It can. Took about that long for me. Could have taken longer if mistakes happen in the process.

    That seems like a really long time to wait. Especially if you were not employed at the time.
