What is the best way to approach a later start date (i.e. beyond the traditional two weeks) when negotiating a job offer? I’d love to see my current projects through before putting in my notice.

It depends on the company and their current needs but I’ve also said I’m looking to finish a project and leave my team at the right time. At this point in the interview process they have already invested a lot in you and don’t want to start over with someone else so you have leverage to give yourself a week or two extra.

You call tell them you want to finish a current project before leaving. I did that when interviewing with EY. If the company wants you they'll adjust for you.

I was able to defer my start date by almost a month. My scenario was bit tricky as I was the one of the two manager in my group at KP. I had told them that I would like to train someone and complete ongoing projects as I am the only one who knows about the engagements in detail. PwC was pretty understanding.

I deferred my start date by over two months. Basically, just let them know I would not accept the role otherwise.
