I shook the hand of my future employer when my new gig was put on the table.
The night before I planned to resign current job I got a little bit anxious not having something in writing from my new employer.
I trust and respect my future employer so I hated that I felt that way. We had shaken on it a week earlier.
Here's an excerpt of what went down "in writing."
Jamie: I come from a world where it would be remiss of me not to ask for some type of written...
Employer: I will tell you what. As a first step into my world - no email confirmation ;)
Jamie: You had me at "my world."
