Be TransparentJust like in the early stages of dating, it’s okay (and assumed) that you are not an exclusive candidate when you start interviewing with companies. If you’re a top engineer, it’s no secret you may get offers from multiple places.Luckily, being in demand helps create a sense of urgency and timeline — one you can use to your benefit, or to accelerate an offer like this:Hey Mark,Thanks for the chat the other day. I wanted to let you know another company is bringing me on-site tomorrow. I’m not sure if this is a final round but Company A is definitely a top choice. Would love to visit your team shortly to make sure I can make the best decision possible.You don’t need to expose who else you’re talking to; just let them know where you are with other interviews. Be UpfrontWith Hired, we provide a starting point for salary upfront. We do this because we want candidates to receive upfront salary information (non-binding), honest messaging and info to determine if the role is worth pursuing on their terms. You’re in demand and have loads of opportunities… Why hide it?
