Is "I want an offer" acceptable if you are interviewing internally? Since it would be a promotion is "offer" the right word to use? I'm not second guessing anything from the interviewing series. I just want to make sure I do not make a mistake.

Thanks,

Mike

Mike,

I posted a similar question on a different thread:

Much of the feedback and the response from Mark said to treat it no differently than an external interview. That is to say, always close.

Same same same.

Close close close.

From personal experience: I interview for three positions within my company (essentially the same position, different locations). I closed two of the three and walked away with two solid offers to choose from and would have had a third had I not accepted my first choice. I found out later than another department head would have offered me a job in her department based on my interview so...four if we're counting the 'would have buts'.

Good luck to you!
