I am working at a firm, firm A, in Germany.
In about a month, I will have the yearly review of my performance at my current firm. The review is together with my direct report. I am up for promotion junior -> senior, and depending on my review that might be in 1 month or in 3 months.
A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by another firm, firm B, and decided to walk through the interview process with them. In the end, firm B has offered me the position. They have offered me a senior position. The salary is a tad higher than at my current firm.
My first choice is the current firm that I am with and therefore the offer at firm B is to "find my market value".
Now, my questions are:
- Should I use the offer from the other firm in my review?
- If so, in what ways can I use it strategically?
- How do i most effectively communicate the offer to my current firm?
Thank you and let me know if you need further clarification!
