This question already has an answer here:
So I have an internship offer for Company A that is going to expire soon. However, I'm currently working part-time at Company B and am also wanting to explore internship options there.
While I am certainty interested in Company A, I'm not sure it's a place I would like to work at full-time in the future due to it's geographical location away from family. It would be a great internship, but at this point, I'd like to take an internship somewhere I see myself working at.
Unfortunately, Company B has just started their hiring process and I am waiting to hear back from different applications right now. There's a very slim chance that I will get an offer from Company B before the offer deadline passes.... But it's my only other internship offer at this point. So my question is the following:
Is it rude to ask for an internship offer extension when considering another company? If I did email and ask for an extension, should I be vague about the reason or be upfront and say that I am still interviewing with other companies?
EDIT To clarify, I'm asking for an internship offer deadline extension from Company A. Regarding the duplicate, I don't want to ask a general question about how to delay acceptance, I was more wondering about specific extension request advice in the case I would do that.
