If you go with punching new holes you can buy a leather punching kit on Amazon. I got one recently after losing 20 pounds and it was easy to use, even for a DIY incompetent like me.

I had final round interviews last week for the company I really want to work for. I have an offer from another company, which I communicated to the recruiter which expedited the interview to final rounds. I need to respond to the other company's offer letter soon. Should I follow up with the hiring recruiter for the company I want an offer from? Or just move on if I haven't heard back by end of this week?
