An offer (unlike a solicitation) is a clear indication of the offeror's willingness to enter into an agreement under specified terms, and is made in a manner that a reasonable person would understand its acceptance will result in a binding contract. Offers normally include a closing date, otherwise a period of 30 days after the date of offer is commonly assumed. See also bid and proposal.
2. Terms and conditions under which an offer is made, such as quantity, price, discounts, delivery date, shipping costs, etc.

I've currently been at my job for 2 years. I stayed with this company hoping to move up the ladder. I do see potential but recently I got an offer from another company for not only more money but a more elite position.
