[Job search] Decision time looming
Posted by: M A V I C
Date: April 24, 2012 12:15AM
Got an offer today, said I would decide by Friday. I have final interview for another company tomorrow. I was also supposed to have what would be perhaps the final interview with a third company tomorrow as well, but just looking back over my emails I realized that while they gave me a few times and I confirmed one, they said they would get back to me with more info and they never did. That gig actually seems like the best out of the three... largely because it's considerably higher paying.

So one offer now, very high likeliness of another in a day or two... then I imagine I'll need to pull the trigger on one. I sure hope the other company gets their act together, otherwise I guess I'll have to leave them out of the decision.

Deciding between the other two will be tough.

I would contact your company of choice and mention that you had confirmed a time and they were going to get back to you and you need to know if they are still interested . . . or words to that effect. No harm in you following back up. They could be gaging your level of interest . . .

give them a call and say that you've received an offer but you're very interested in their company. otherwise you're going to be off the market very soon.

you'll find out how interested they are.





VTPKL it!

Yeah, I sent them an email last night and heard back today. Still on for today. Apparently my boss works from the SF Bay area.
