Got an offer, but waiting to hear back from

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Aug 20, 2013 7:21 pm

So, I got an offer Friday from a firm I like, but I am still waiting to hear back from a few other callback firms (one in particular that I REALLY liked and thought it went well....but that call back was a week ago yesterday and I've heard NOTHING).

So, should I call the other firms and let them know I am still interested, but I have a pending offer? Or does that just push them into making a decision (and maybe not a good one)? Should I just sit tight for a few weeks???

I have the typical 28 days to respond....but I'd rather not hold on to it that long if I get one from my top firm choice. UGH!!!

I'd chill out for another week or two, give the other firms some time to come to a decision on their own deadline. Alert them of your offer after that with at least a week left for them to act on it. The 28 days is there for a reason, no need to rush it.
