Dear Experts, When do I tell a company I took another job offer? I’ve been interviewing with a few, and I got an offer from one. I want to tell the other companies that I’ve moved along in the process elsewhere to expedite things. I'm hoping that it will get me multiple offers, so I have an even better choice to make. What should I do? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: @kgrantcareers Q#158 Only inform them if they contact you and would like to move forward. Thnk them 4 time and state looking at other oppt. @gradversity Q#158 I would never make that call until I had a signed and accepted offer from another company. Too much risk otherwise. @jtodonnell Q#158 If you get contacted for 2nd interview, then it's polite to say no-thanks. No need to call before that. @sweetcareers Q#158 W/n u have an offer frm one empl., update the others.
