This question already has an answer here:
I am interviewing for two positions in which I feel I have a strong lead. Both jobs involve relocation. I have a preferred job. I think I will receive an offer from my less preferred job first.
Can I ask to wait a week or two before saying yes or will that compromise my offer? Should I tentatively say yes but ask for a month or more before starting and politely inform them that I've received an offer from a better one if that comes beforehand?
Is it polite to tell others that I need a decision before a certain time point?
What's the best way to delegate this issue?
