I just had an interview with a company (Company A) and i thought it went well. if I make it - there will be a final culture fit interview (much less formal). But I already have an offer that I'm sitting on from another company (Company B). How do I and should I inform Company A about it?

If so, then how can I leverage this to my advantage?

  • Do you have a final date to take the offer from B? Is that after you have the final interview with A and receive an offer? – DarkCygnus Sep 2 '20 at 0:33
  • They are meant to send me a formal offer letter today. So I suppose a week from now is the deadline. The HR from A (the one I just interviewed with today) said they will inform me of an outcome by 48 hours - then I suppose early next week we'll have the culture fit interview. – blankface Sep 2 '20 at 0:35
  • Mind telling us about the second question I asked? When does the offer you are currently sitting on expire? The offer you already have from company B (I think I mixed A withh B sorry) – DarkCygnus Sep 2 '20 at 0:37
  • I am meant to receive the official offer letter today from Company B. – blankface Sep 2 '20 at 0:39

    I see... the point I'm trying to reach is: Will you eventually have BOTH offers in hand and be able to decide? Or is timing not the best here and you would have to take a risk and "bluff"? – DarkCygnus Sep 2 '20 at 0:40

My answer will be a bit different from the answers I usually give.

  1. If timing is on your side, and you will eventually have both offers in hand. Then just decide on one and inform both companies of your choice (accept the one you decide, and politely decline and thank the other you decided you didn't want).

  2. If timing is not on your side, and you won't have both offers in hand, then I would refer you to these questions for guidance (I also suggest you search on possible posts related or similar that I may have missed):
