WIBU to re-send work email?

Basically, my question is this: I received a job offer on Monday.
Job will be based abroad, completely different time zone (which is relevant to my AIBU - think South-East Asia), most communication has been going on via email.

So, on 6 July, around midnight my time, I received the finalized job offer via email. I replied promptly the following morning, Tuesday, stating my acceptance and asking a couple of questions.

It's now Thursday afternoon and I haven't heard anything back yet. Would I be unreasonable to re-send the email, maybe adding a couple of lines saying something along the lines of "not sure this reached you the first time, I'm re-sending just in case".

Still, I realize I'm a very anxious person, so maybe it'd come across as OTT? Any input appreciated!

Just resend it!

Yeah, resend.

yes definitely resend it - if anything you will come across as keen and engaged. - you can always say "i also had a couple of further Questions ...."

congratulations on the job!

I would pretend I had more questions (make one up!!) and forward the original email, with a note saying something like 'further to my acceptance e mail below, I also wanted to ask about ....." And if they didn't receive the first one they'll have it now. May also refresh someone's memory that they haven't got back to you!

I didn't, when I was waiting to hear from my job. I waited an agonising 7 days, then chased it up, and they hadn't received my reply. I definitely sent it. And that was in the UK!

Resend it asap so they can look at it when they start work tonight [our time].

It could just be that the hiring manager is away for a few days.

Sorry to hijack thread, but how long should you wait after an interview before chasing the outcome? My own fault I should have asked at the interview when I'd hear. It was a normal Q&A interview, anyone who passes that would get to stage 2 which is a task. I had my interview on Monday and keep staring at my phone waiting for it to ring!

In your case She, I'd email them tomorrow afternoon. Not too sure why - I've not exact science - but it gives them a bit of a push to get back to you early next week if they haven't sorted it by the weekend.
