I am in a situation where I have company A extending a job offer.

But I am waiting on company B who I'd like to work for more to extend a job offer which they have not yet.

I was wondering if it would be ok to tell my would be manager about the situation.

Yes. I would definitely tell B that you have an offer on the table — most hiring managers have a lackadaisical attitude and this will drive them to make an offer quicker, if they are considering it.

You could also notify A as well and drive counter offers but of less importance to the question.

  • good call. comp. B did not move through. Its good i checked in. whew.

It’s better to tell company B today “I have another offer” than telling them in two weeks time “thanks for your offer, but you were too slow”.
