A couple of weeks ago I was approached by company A, by offering me an exciting opportunity. I was really pleased and I managed to make it to the last/final interview with them. So far all good, till a couple of days before my final interview, I was approached by a really great company named B, offering me an even greater opportunity. I find what company B does more exciting and more important/meaningful for the society. Also, compensation is by far greater which excites me as this would be my first job after my graduation and internship.
My first informal/briefing call with company B happens the same day I am having my last interview with company A. I suspect (if i do well) that company A will be offering me the job and probably asking for my commitment in some way.
Supposedly I prefer B over A, what is the best approach that I can take here? e.g. - tell A to give me a couple of days to consider it...while at the same time tell B to "hurry up" ?
Any ideas on how I can handle this situation, without being impolite to anyone, or risking my initial opportunity?
