It's not official until there's an offer letter.
But we have a verbal agreement. They offered me 2% less than I asked for. I can deal with that.
The actual letter was supposed to be emailed Friday. I did get some emails about the onboarding process, drug testing, new hire training, so I'm pretty sure it's going to happen.
But I'm pretty much in the camp that it isn't real until it's in writing.
ETA: This employer has been on the Fortune Magazine top 100 places to work for many years in a row. I'm pretty excited.
