This question already has an answer here:
I will be interviewed by two separate positions (similar job roles but serving different verticals of the business) for the same employer in South East Asia. (Employer is a fast-growing unicorn/tech company valued at > 1bn USD) .
I have two final round interviews for these two separate positions coming up this week. These two interviews are at separate days of the weeks (approx 2-3 days apart). Provided I pass both final rounds, I may get an offer for the first position 2-3 days before I get the offer for the second position.
I want to delay the first offer long enough such that I have time to consider both offers together, which will help me pick one over the other. However, I understand sometimes I may be pressured by the firm to accept the offer asap, and besides, I don't want to make them wait too long. How should I go about delaying this?
- Is it fine if I tell the first position's HR/talent acquisition partner that I want X number of days to decide as I have another final round for another position in the same firm?
- Should I just ask for 1 week to decide and not give any reason?
- What should I do to 'play it nice' and not to offend anyone?
-just to indicate, each role is served by their own Talent acquisition parters/managers.
