If you have gotten an official offer letter, it usually will have a start date.
If you have a verbal agreement and nothing in writing, you can contact the person who gave you the offer and ask them to follow up.
It is not entirely uncommon for HR to process new hires on a specific schedule – especially when benefits and payroll onboarding need to be synced up.
Often, they may want to wait until they have multiple people starting together to make it easier on their filing.
