/ Asked by Kate
I received a verbal offer and a written offer letter from the person who would be my manager. They've been my point of contact and recruiter, not anyone from HR. Is that normal?

Congratulations on the job offer! Companies and organizations have their own set practices by which they extend job offers, some do so through the hiring manager while others communicate offers through an HR partner. It's not uncommon for the person who has worked most closely with you through the interview process to extend the offer. You may see the Hiring Manager's HR Partner step into the offer process as you negotiate salary, or other components of the offer. Additionally, if you had questions about the benefits offered the Hiring manager may refer you to their HR partner.

Congratulations on the offer.   It could be that you received the offer letter with the managers signature but it was generated via a database and HR moved you forward through the process.   You may not actually talk with HR during the hiring process.

Congrats! Hope it is what you are looking for! 
Regarding HR contact, utilize your recruiter as your HR Point of Contact until your start date. They typically report into the HR Organization and have contacts if you have questions out of their area of expertise. Hope this helps!

Congratulations on your offer! Similar to what the other companies shared - I definitely wish you the best and hope this opportunity will be a great fit for what you are looking for. In addition, I also echo what the previous companies have shared. Each recruiting process is slightly different at each company. My company has a very similar process to the process you just experienced. Our Recruiters sit on our Human Resources team and work very closely with our Human Resources Business Partners (HRBP) when extending an offer (even if you have not engaged with the HR team as a candidate). Our Recruiters do act as the main point of contact until your first day on the job. For us, that is typically when the handoff occurs and the HRBP helps you through the rest of the onboarding process. Hope this helps!
