I feel like I am getting close to an offer from one company, but also want to see what the other company might offer. How do I ask the other company to speed up their decision without being too pushy? I have already finished interviewing at this other company

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Wait until you actually have an offer in your hand. Once you do, review the offer. If it's not an offer you would be willing to accept, you can reject it or attempt to negotiate with that company. If it is an offer you would be willing to accept, then you can go to other companies that you are interviewing with, inform them of the new timelines, and see what happens. Some companies may be able to accelerate their process to meet your new timeline, others may not. You can see if the first company that provided you with an offer can extend their timeline. But any negotiations may result in an offer being retracted.

  • +1 Until you know whether the other offer is one you might accept, there is no point in disrupting your other applications. – Kaz Oct 18 '16 at 16:18
