    What should I do if the joining letter doesn’t have any date?

    Got through the interview in one of the leading company and recently they sent the joining letter for the same but there is no date mentioned in the letter. What should I do now? Do I have to call them and ask or mail them? Can you please tell me what step I should take next? Which will be professional and good for my future?

    Hi..I think you should certainly do something soon as you are in danger of losing your job if you dont do something immediately..You have to know the joining date in order to join your job..If you are late they may not accept you..

    Firstly i think you should write a mail to them regarding the same..Write in formal format..Ask politely and address it to the manager ..After mailing them wait for somedays for their reply..

    If you think its urgent and your joining date is soon or if you dont get the reply in time, then its better you go to their office and talk to the manager or HR directly..Tell them your problem..Speak politely and i am sure that they will give you another joining letter with the proper date on it..

    This is the way i think in which you should handle this situation..

    Good luck

    Dear Aspirant,

    Congratulations for getting selected for job.

    It might be a clekial mistake not to mention the joining or reporting date in your joining letter.

    You may send a mail to the concerned company asking for the same.This will take the least time to get you reply.

    If you have the contact number of the HR or any official of the concerned company,you can also enquire of the same.

    Hope of getting positive response & for the earliest joing in the company.

    Thanks.

    Ashok

    Dear friend,

    It is good to write a letter to the company to say that you accepted the joining letter and willing to join as quickly as possible. This shows your willingness to join the job and makes good impression. Please remember to mention your contact number. They will definitely reply you and tell you about when to join.

    The letter should include:

    1. Thank you the joining letter.
    2. Position for which you have been appointed.
    3. Questions if you have any
    4. Ask for the date when you have to join etc.

    Hi,

    Congratulations of getting a job in a big company.

    There should be the date of joining mentioned in the joining letter, if not, then what is joining letter for?

    So, you should call the HR person or mail them or go directly and politely ask about it.

    It could be a mistake or may be they wanted to check something.

    So, its better to talk about it rather than coming to a conclusion.

    Hi..
    First of all congratulations for clearing the interview procedure of the company that you are talking about. On the other hand there is a cause of worry if you there is no joining date mentioned in your joining letter. You should get in touch with the Human Resource department and tell them that there is no joining date mentioned and ask them to provide you with one at the earliest. Be very polite and formal in your application. Your tone should be not such that it sounds nervous. The application can be sent via mail.

    Incase you do not receive a reply within 5 days then you should contact them through phone. You hsould mention when did you get selected in the interview and tell them that you snet them a mail already but did not recieve a reply. Be firm while you are talking to the human resource department.

    The last step that you might need to take is personally visit the company and take the joining letter along. This should be your last resort and while meeting the HR Department don't seem nervous. Just be polite and firm.

    I hope the first solution should suffice.. All the best!

    Hello Friend,

    When You Have Got The Joining Letter Than They Have Put The Date For Joining Because Joining Letter Mean They Have Call For Job Urgently Or Defined Date.....
    So Just Read The Letter Carefully Because They Have Put Date Or Note For Joining........

    Suggestion :

    >> Consult With Your TPO (Training And Placement Officer)
    >> Also Make A Call In Company And Ask

    All The Best

    Dear..

    If you got the joining letter and on which date is not specified then it is clear that the company that has recruited you has put you on a hold that means until they find a suitable position for you they will not allow you to work. These situation generally occur in many companies because of various reason such as if a company has a new process which is about to start and you are recruited for that then you have to wait until that process starts. In other case if a employee is leaving the company and you are appointed in place of that employee then you have to wait until that guy served his notice period.

    To be on the safer side i advice you to talk to the HR directly about the matter and ask for a suitable and exact date of joining as this will clear all your doubts. Hope it will help you.

    All the best

    You should talk to the company recruitment cell regarding the joining date.You can either call them or send a mail to respective authority.There is nothing wrong to know about the joining date of a new recruiter.

    This situation arises in campus recruitment where company put some people on hold so that when they need more employees you can replace the vacant seats so just confirm it from the company.

    Firstly you must read that Joining letter carefully, there may be some clause of Joining date. If not, then it's seems to be an clerical/typing mistake because generally Joining letter in any company would specify a date from then, you are eligible to Join the company. So in order to confirm the exact Joining date, you are required to contact the companies officials. You may contact them either through Mail or by calling them. As per my view Email would be a best option to contact, as you can mention complete details to ask your query, so that they can revert back to you soon.

    I think you must definitely do one thing shortly as you're at risk of losing your job if you dont do one thing forthwith..You have to grasp the connexion date so as to hitch your job..If you're late they'll not settle for you..

    first of all i believe you must write a mail to them concerning identical..Write in formal format..Ask with courtesy and address it to the manager ..After mailing them look forward to somedays for his or her reply..

    If you're thinking that its pressing and your connexion date is shortly or if you dont get the reply in time, then its higher you move to their workplace and refer to the manager or hour directly..Tell them your drawback..Speak with courtesy and that i am certain that they'll provide you with another connexion letter with the correct date thereon..

    This can be the approach i believe during which you must handle this example.
    First of all congratulations for clearing the interview procedure of the corporate that you just ar talking regarding. On the opposite hand there's a reason for worry if you there's no connexion date mentioned in your connexion letter. you must get involved with the Human Resource department and tell them that there's no connexion date mentioned and raise them to supply you with one at the earliest. Be terribly polite and formal in your application. Your tone ought to be not such it sounds nervous. the appliance will be sent via mail.

    Case you are doing not receive a reply inside five days then you must contact them through phone. You hsould mention once did you get elite within the interview and tell them that you just snet them a mail already however failed to recieve a reply. Be firm whereas you're speech the human resource department.

    The last step that you just may ought to take is in person visit the corporate and take the connexion letter on. this could be your expedient and whereas meeting the hour Department do not appear nervous. simply be polite and firm.
    If you bought the connexion letter and on that date isn't such then it's clear that the corporate that has recruited you has place you on a hold meaning till they notice an appropriate position for you they'll not enable you to figure. These scenario usually occur in several firms owing to varied reason like if a corporation encompasses a new method that is on the brink of begin and you're recruited for that then you have got to attend till that method starts. In different case if a worker is effort the corporate and you're appointed in situ of that worker then you have got to attend till that guy served his notice amount.

    To get on the safer aspect i recommendation you to speak to the hour directly regarding the matter and invite an appropriate and precise date of connexion as this can clear all of your doubts. Hope it'll assist you.
