How do you tell a firm you have another offer?
Say something like:“I'm very excited about the opportunity to work for Company B, especially the ability to have an impact. Company B is by far my top choice, but I have just received another offer this week at a company that would allow me to build out a different skillset.
Can I accept a job offer while waiting for another?
The amount of time you wait for another job offer before accepting a current offer may be determined by the current offer's requested start date or the employer's preferences. Typically, a candidate has a week to accept or decline an offer, so you can use this as a timeline to hear back from another employer.
How do you leverage one offer against another?
