I have a good offer in hand for an interesting role but not my dream role. I am expected to get back to them by this Friday with an answer. A company reached out Friday for what would be a dream role. The recruiter hasn’t responded to my email about wanting to hear more etc. Do I send another message kind of explaining the time crunch or anything? I am excited by the offer I have in hand but it isn’t quite the dream job the other one would be.
