Q: I am waiting on an offer from Company A and have two other offers coming in. My preference is to work for Company A but they seem to be dragging their feet. How can I expedite an offer without being too pushy?
A: Call Company A hiring manager. Mention that you have several offers coming in. However, you are “most interested in working for Company A.” You are being honest and also letting Company A know that you have to make a decision near term. Most likely, they will move quickly if they are seriously interested in hiring you. If they do not move quickly, it is likely you are not the first choice candidate OR the company just does not know what they are looking for in a new hire. If you have to accept an offer from one of the other companies, do it! When Company A get’s their act together, they will know where to find you. Congratulations on securing several offers in this economy!!
