Accept your offer

1. Review your offer information. 

Loan-Outs: If you were onboarded as a loan-out employee, you’ll see a note regarding your loan-out profile under the “Your Hiring Profile” section. You’ll need to add a loan-out entity before you can continue accepting your offer. Learn more about this here.

If you are satisfied with the deal memo, click Begin Start Packet Forms.

2. A window will pop up informing you that you do not have a withholding form on file. Click Complete Form.

4. After you complete and submit the form, click Go back to offer at the bottom of the screen.
