Follow Up On Possible Job Offers

One of my clients called today.  He’s received a job offer from one company.  However, another company, one he’d rather work for, hasn’t gotten back to him after three interviews.  He asked me what he should do.  My answer is simple:  Follow up.

There is no harm in letting a company that might be interested in hiring you that another employer has made you an offer.  What do you have to lose?  Both companies have shown interest in hiring you.  The one that has not made an offer might be dragging its feet, but it could still be interested.  You’ll never know if you don’t follow up.

The job market is challenged.  Salary offers tend to be low.  The only way to get a good offer is to give yourself every opportunity to test the market.  If you’re lucky enough to be involved in multiple interviews, follow up on the offer.
