Another firm ettiquette question

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Aug 26, 2011 12:24 am

Went on a several cb's within the last week and have received a couple of offers. i am not positive what offer i will take but i am positive that i would take either of them over the firm i had a cb with on monday, thus, would like to take myself out of the running with them.

since i haven't heard thumbs up or down from them yet re: getting an offer, is it douchey to call them tomorrow and just withdraw my candidacy or should i wait and see what they tell me?

nope. Cancel as soon as you receive offers youd take over something pending. Good for everyone involved.

No, its in fact a classy move. Save them from wasting the time thinking about you, and open up a possible slot for someone who will take the job.
