I'm in final stage interviews with two companies, both of which I like and have expressed interest in giving a final offer. Company 1 is moving pretty quickly, but company 2 has gone a bit quiet. How do I nudge company 2 so that I can compare and leverage offers?

I’d wait until I have the offer from C1 in hand and then email C2 to say that you have the offer and ask if they’re interested in moving forward. Sadly, agencies still don’t fully understand that they don’t have the upper hand anymore and seem to need a reminder sometimes.

How fast is too fast to get an offer? I had two easy interviews (founders only) and got an offer $20k higher than asking in under 72 hours from first call. It's a very small 9yo company, very niche product, and I’m finding no behind-the-scenes information (doesn't even show up in Glassdoor.) Two other prospects are going very well, but still have 3+ rounds to go for each. Did I just hit the jackpot, or is this too good to be true? Would you take the offer, try vetting them further, or run?

I had an interview last week for a Jr CW job. All went well it seemed. The CCO’s exact closing words were “You’re gonna have a great career. Your ideas are good”. Additionally, a CD there I contacted on LinkedIn said the CCO liked my book. But he ended by telling me they’re still getting things sorted out and to follow up this week. Don’t know if this is a bad sign I won’t get it or if I’m just being insanely impatient and unrealistic.

I‘ve been at my company since quarantine started and have been using my personal cell phone to make work calls and conduct phone interviews. I noticed my cell/AT&T bill has gone up.

Of course most of our corporate team also use their cell phones but since I recruit and interview people all day, I’m using my cell a lot.

The twitter CEO’s base salary is $1million (plus bonus RSUs upto 150% of that). The google CFO’s base is $1million (plus some RSUs I’m sure) and here I am thinking a 3-4th year EY Partner or 1-2nd year MBB partner would probably make that much base? But making partner (as hard as it is) has to be much easier than being a C level exec in tech? What am I missing here :/

Ob was so flexible about it and said I can maintain my routine as long as not exhausted.

I’m in the final stages negotiating an offer, the recruiter said she requested the offer letter before I agreed on the final compensation, this happened right before Christmas.

I hope that won’t be a reason to stop the offer
