I've been having interviews with public accounting firms lately,
and I got a job offer from Grant Thornton.
They sent me all the benefit information with a paper for me to sign to accept the offer, and the deadline for the offer is Octoboer 29.
Here is a problem.
I have a 2nd interview invitation from McGladrey (on 10/26) and from Deloitte (on 11/2)
(and if I get a job offer from either McGladrey or Deloitte I would turn down GT's offer for sure)
What should I do??
If I can push back the GT(Grant Thornton)'s deadline that'd be sweeet.
But at this point, I feel like I'm being forced to make a decision.
It will sound selfish, (and I SHOULD be selfish,) but I want to have all the options on my table for a decision.
The worst scenario is that, I turn down GT's offer, and no offers from McGladrey and Deloitte after the interviews. That's why I want to have all my options on my table.
So, the deadline extension, is this something I can ask GT?? (maybe for an additional week?)
If so, would it be okay to ask it via email?? (cuz sometimes I don't feel comfortable talking about these kind of situations as a non-native English speaker)
Would asking for deadline extension hurt me in any way?
Or is there any other option for me at this point other than deadline extension?
I heard about reneging, but I think it's the last resort option.
If I do reneging, would it really hurt me in any way??
Any advice would be greatly appreciated...
