So I've been applying for internships and I've received an offer from company_x. They've basically said, "if you're happy with it, let me know and I’ll get the paperwork raised".
Thing is, I have a few last-round interviews with some other companies. I basically want to buy time so I can do those interviews and make the most informed decision. I haven't been given a deadline, but company_x said I'd have one week to accept the offer once the contract was written.
How do I approach this? As of now, I've asked them questions about perks/compensation and I'm waiting to hear back. I anticipate they'll reply back and ask if I'd like for them to start the paperwork. How do I respond to that?
Fwiw, company_x is the 3rd choice on my list, and I'm interviewing with my first and second choice next week.
