I initially received a job offer from Company A on Monday and they told me they wanted a response to their offer by Thursday.

I relayed this information to the recruiters from Company B, C and D. I told them that I have an offer on the table and I needed to address it by Thursday. This prompted B to send an offer Wednesday while C and D told me on Wednesday that they would make an offer Thursday.

Company A called me Thursday morning and I explained the situation of receiving multiple offers, some of which required relocation. A said I could have until Monday to respond to their offer.

Should I let the recruiters from the other companies know I have additional time to respond to Company A's job offer? While it is the truth, I don't want them to think I might have been lying / strong arming them into an offer. Also, if it makes a difference, these job offers are for software engineering.

They already said they will make their offers on Thursday, so they should be preparing their offers and you should expect them by that day; I don't see what you would get by telling them company A gave you more time.

Stepping a bit back from your question, I also think you should be focusing your effort/time in deciding among the offers you already have (companies A and B), and do the same with C and D as soon as you get the offer.

All in all, I think you managed to coordinate these offers in a good way, assuming C and D respond Thursday (today, I take it) you will have your 4 offers lined up and be ready to decide. Good luck with the rest of the process.

  • Should I assume that Company B, C, D are expecting a response by the end of Thursday (today)? Would it be unwise to ask for some time to consider their offer ? – krikara May 16 at 17:14
  • @krikara Company B should have stated when they expect an answer when they gave you their offer (as company A did by asking your answer by Monday). The same will/should happen when C and D give you their offers, they should come with an expected date for you to answer. – DarkCygnus May 16 at 17:18
