Job offer acceptance thank you
(St. Paul, MN)
I accepted a job offer and the next day there was a welcome gift on my door step from the company I will be working for, a beautiful floral display. I won't be starting the job for a couple of weeks but I would like to thank them for welcome gift. Whom do I send a thank you note and what do I say?
Congratulations on your new job! You must be thrilled. And how lovely to have received a welcome gift from your new company before you have even joined.
You're right that you need to send a thank you note, both to accept the new position and to say thank you for the floral gift. And this needs to be mailed quickly!
As as you have indicated that you are not sure who sent the flowers, you could assume that they have been organised by your interviewer and address your thank you note to this person. To make sure though, I recommend calling the company and asking for your new manager's personal assistant, who will be able to confirm this for you (and save you any blushes if you thank the wrong person by mistake).
