HELP: Offer deadline approaching!!

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Dec 22, 2011 6:57 am

Hey everyone,

Two weeks ago, I got an offer from a midsize. I told my last outstanding V-100 about the offer and its two-week deadline, and the V-100 responded by requesting a second writing sample. The V-100 hasn't given me a response, and the deadline is approaching (next week)! How do I follow up with the V-100 without sounding too pushy and annoying?!

If you told them of your deadline, I wouldn't call them again until 1-2 days before offer expires.

I'm worried about the holidays. My deadline is a few days after Christmas, and I'm not sure what the firm's schedule is around this time. Thoughts?

If you told them they will make sure to figure things out if they are interested. They aren't going to forget about you as a potential hire they are interested just because its vacay time...

I say leave it. And follow up maybe 36 hours before the deadline if you haven't heard.
