No, you don’t need an answer ’straight away’, and here is why.

    I always use "Exploding Job Offers", right or wrong.

    My rationale is that under the tenet of offer and acceptance in contract law, if I don't put a time limit on the acceptance at which time the contractual offer is void, a candidate could conceivably accept at a later time, after I've already hired another candidate.

    Maybe a better approach would be to add something along the lines of "If you choose not to accept our offer, we would appreciate you advising us in writing, no later than [date]"
