Just avoid the obvious: Insulting them, calling them names, threatening their family or repeatedly telling the voices in your head to shut up ;-)

Then you should be OK.

Oh, and congrats on the offer.

Congrats on the offer. Recruiter call is nothing to worry about, they will just go over the offer & start time / misc. conditions. Just be polite, respectful, thankful... yadda yadda :)

Well done! Recruiter call is to answer any genuine questions you have - e.g. start dates, any support offered for relocation, etc.

The purpose of the call is to help you and to hook you in / ensure you sign - the ball is now in your court and it is up to them to persuade you that you should work for McK!

Well done again!
