Need to get an offer ASAP due to personal reasons/a move, how can I effectively speed this up, if I can at all? Was initially told the role was for a March start date (back in February) and its leaning towards April (IF I get an offer) now. Eeeek! Advice please.

A counter offer could work. "I really want to work for you guys but company x has just offered me a role."

also patience. Finance teams need to approve your salary, bureaucracy takes time.

You could tell them the truth tbh. Or say you have another offer but are really interested in working for them, so you’re wondering if there is any chance they could let you know before 3/16 or whatever.

Could also be that they’re pitching and waiting for the account to become official. Was dragged along slowly from an agency for a “client we cannot yet name but your background is perfect for” until they told me that they decided to go with a more junior position. Found out a week later this agency lost out a pitch for a client that I really would have been perfect for.

Looking for roles internally at the current company, and the role identified is an individual contributor role. I exited consulting at a Director /SM level, and due to the layoff took a not so good role 2 years ago. The hiring manager for this role asked "why do you want to be a people manager". Frankly, I was a little shocked at this even being a question. How would you react in this situation it you were me? Would you entertain/respond to this question at all? The communication is in writing.
