Question about English (US)
In Japan, students go job hunting while they are still in universities. If a company likes to hire a student, it gives the student a 'promise' or 'offer' that it's going to hire her/him after graduation.
What would you call that 'promise' or 'offer' in English?
And if the company changes its mind and no longer wants to hire the student, do you say "The company cancel the promise /offer or something ?" Or "break" or "withdraw " or some other verb would you use instead of cancel ?
