How long will a law firm hold out a lateral offer for? And what excuse could I give to extend the wait time without looking like I’m not that interested in the job? I think an offer might be coming soon from a v10 but I’m mid process for an in house role at the moment and I’m genuinely not sure which I want more.

I just went through this song and dance. The offer letter may have an expiration date, but in my experience, the firm wanted to know within one week. You could potentially push out the offer with wanting to meet with other people on the team, follow-up questions, negotiation, etc. I would definitely mention the potential impending offer to your in-house recruiter. This might speed up their process (which could be more lengthy due to in-house team structure). Good luck!

Hi, I have more than 5+ years of experience in Performance Testing and engineering. I do not want to continue in tech. Want to switch to management. So planning to do a PMP course. Really confused about the consequences after the course, whether I'll be able to successfully get a management role or not. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions for me? Any guidance is appreciated.
