Interviewing Tips/How to ask company to wait after verbal offer

Hi Jonathan, as exciting as this opportunity might have seemed, from what you've told us, the hiring manager sounds unprofessional.  Any professional would never put you on the spot like that.  As a recruiter, I always told my candidates to tell the company that "I'm very interested in this opportunity and I hope you'll understand that i'd like to take XX amount of time (1 or 2 days) to discuss it with my spouse/think about it/take a look at my budget"...I think passing up this opportunity was a blessing in disguise.  Please take a look at my Mastering the Job Interview video on YouTube along with my other career videos.

I also have a book available on Kindle: Job Hunt by KP Croft

I will answer questions about resumes and how to do well on an interview. I am a former employment counselor and I have owned my own resume and career counseling business since 1982.


I have over 24 years of experience in this field. One of my greatest achievements was being asked to serve on the Employment Services Committee of our local outreach. I also conduct workshops and am a guest speaker at many schools and for our local outreach.
