You're interviewing for jobs and then all of a sudden, you get an offer from a company, but it's not the one you want. You want the offer from the other company who hasn't made a decision yet.
And the dilemma is if you don't take this offer, you might not get the offer from the other company and then you end up with nothing and nobody wants that.
Now, if that were me and I wasn't working and I had an opportunity to take a job versus nothing, I would definitely take the job and I have done that in the past. What you want to do is use your current offer as leverage to force the hand of another employer.
And so here's how this works. You have to call them on the phone. You can't just e-mail it. Do not e-mail them and say, “Hey, I have another job offer. Would you consider moving forward now?”
No, you have to talk to them. And it's important that you talk to them on the phone, so that you can hear their response and you can adjust accordingly.
So, what you do; get along the phone and you say, “Hey, this is Don Georgevich. And I wanted to talk to you about the open position that you have. I'm really interested in it. I really like it. It's something that I want to do. This is the company that I want to be at.
I want to work at your company. The problem is I got a job offer from a different company and it's not exactly the place I want to be. I would rather be here”.
