OFFERS / INTERVIEWS...and conflicts

Postby Legacy Rabbit » Mon May 04, 2015 4:01 pm

Situation:

1. I have an offer that starts next Monday
- I love the team, I was hired during the initial interview. Background and offer letter was emailed to me within hours. However, salary is still under negotiation. The hiring manager does not make salary decisions. HR and I are still negotiating. However, this institution is the leading med institution in my area.

2. I received another offer today, this morning. Pay is close to 100k a year with a leading financial institution.

3. I have a (five hour) interview this Wednesday with another leading financial institution. Salary has yet to be negotiated but the company is not even two miles away from where I live. It is a F100.

4. A NY based company is flying me to do the meet and greet this Wednesday. I have had three video-conference / phone interviews. Now they are ready to meet me. The recruiter told me there is a 90 percent chance I will be hired. Pay is $115K for NY (they will not budge but will give me an upfront bonus to count as relocation)

5. I am still interviewing with a top consulting agency. The recruiter told me that the hiring manager liked me and said I will be ready for the position. The hiring manager wants me to meet the client (on site). This company is a preeminent consulting/tech company (current clients include 89 of the Fortune Global 100 and more than three-quarters of the Fortune Global 500). Pay will be 100k.

All of these interviews / offers are in my areas, except #4.

#3 and #4 there is a conflict with time. I have reached out to #4 to move the flight to later in the evening. Still awaiting feedback.

Please excuse grammar.

Is there a point to all this, or should we all just go ahead and tell you to fuck your own face?

It is my fault for not being clear. I have never had to turn down offers or interviews. I am asking for help on how to professionally turn down offers and interviews, while being professional and not burn bridges with the recruiters / hiring managers.

I am asking for help from those who have been in similar situations.

Tell them you're withdrawing, thank them for their time, and tell them how great your experience with them was. What's the issue? This is generic shit.

Would this qualify as a "humble brag"?

OP, good work in the other thread disposing of those anti-Baylor trolls. I'm happy to know that you are also achieving significant professional success outside of TLS. I know you'll crush all of your interviews!

I'm still not sure what the point of your thread is (other than to brag). It can't be about getting advice in turning down offers. There's no advice to give about that. It's a three sentence email... Your OP is 10x longer than that

Am I the only one that didn't see a single question in the OP? I couldn't tell that the OP was asking for help.

No, because it's missing the humble part.

Going out on a limb to assume OP actually wants advice here, answer is obviously this:

bjsesq wrote:Tell them you're withdrawing, thank them for their time, and tell them how great your experience with them was. What's the issue? This is generic shit.


There's really nothing else you can do besides be respectful and professional; some will take it poorly (prob for reasons personal to them), but the rest will wish you well or even tell you to keep in touch if plans change.

You can't keep every door open forever. Some will close, and you have to accept that or be paralyzed by indecision forever.
