I’ve been interviewing at 3-4 good companies for the last couple of months. Finally I got an offer from the one that’s at the top of my list. Thanks to the Manager Tools podcasts! One of the other companies is doing background checks and a third one is flying me in for a final interview at their site to talk to some higher up for supposedly the final placement.
Could you please suggest what’s the best way proceed in your opinion? Should I ask the third company to cancel my travel plans and interviews with the higher ups? Or should I still go to the interview, get an offer and then make an excuse (e.g. offer too low) to decline them? (I seriously doubt that they can beat the offer and quality of job that I got offered by the first company)
