How do I professionally ask for more time to think about a job offer?

You ask for this when you’re extended an offer. I thank them for the offer and ask for either 2 days or 5 days (one week) to make a decision and stick to it. You don’t want to come back after the agreed time and say you need more time which can turn off the employer. They either expect you to accept the offer or present a counteroffer. When you ask about extension, this is also good time to ask questions about hours, schedule, benefits and premiums to review over with your offer.

Assignments are a time commitment and I want to make sure this will be worth everyone’s effort.” Zero feedback, just “nothing I can share with you yet.”

Ummmm…if you’re requesting 5+ interviews and an (unpaid) assignment, you should be ready for this question.
