get a job offer

When a company wants to hire you, they make a "job offer". This is a formal request for you to work for them. It can be a written offer letter or a verbal offer. When the company makes a job offer to a person, you say that that person "got a job offer" in normal conversation. In more formal speech or writing, you can say that the person "received a job offer".
