    Is it good to tell that I already have a job offer in the interview?

    I am attending my second interview now and will it be good if I say that I already got the job offer before? Will that help me to negotiate the salary or so? Can you please provide me the full information on this? I have no idea about it, so kindly provide me your suggestions on this? Thanks.

    Hi..I dont think you should tell in your second interview that you already have a job offer beforehand because there are may companies which dont allow you to sit in their interviews if you already have a job offer in hand and so you maybe rejected on that basis..Also if you tell such a thing they may take it in a negative manner thinking that you are showing off and want to take control over the proceedings..They may take this as your arrogance and may reject you..As for the salary negotiation part, you can even do so by making a good impression on the interviewer with you answers and resume ..Then the interviewer will certainly accept what you ask as he will be wanting have you as an employee in his office ...

    So i think it will be better for you if you dont do such a thing ..But if you have a very good job offer in hand and you think that by telling so you may get a better salary package from here , then you may try so as you have nothing to lose..Even if they reject you, you have the first job which is also very good..So you will be safe..But if your first offer is not that great then its better you dont indulge in such a thing..

    I would advice you to give your best in your interview rather than indulging in such tactics and leave the rest to God..You will certainly will be rewarded..Good luck and Thanks

    hello friend.It is not good and not necessary that all information of past job's offer should be provided to current employer.These are the negative points and effect badly on employer.If you show your offer letter in interview then an HR think that you are not worthy for that job or by showing this you want to press or ask for high salary demand.An employer also think that having a offer letter before too and even you are searching for new job.it's show that you are not stable and without any stability no such person can success in his/her work.Generally companies hate to those employees who want to show his/her quality or show his/her smartness.Normally these qualities are counted in negative activities.You should mind on current interview and not others.If employer asks to tell about any details of interview that you have appeared then you should tell it and can put your offer letter for job against current employer.thanks

    No ,you should not tell that you have already a job offer,this will leave bad impression on interviewer that you are just wasting their time.they will blame your college or university for this and they may permanently ban your college for further placement drive.You may be given higher salary by this company so try to crack this interview also.After this interview you will have two options to select any one job according to job type ,salary,facility provided etc.
    You are lucky that your institute is allowing you for another interview,else in most of the universities if any candidates has atleast one job then they will not participates in future campus drives.This help to give placement to maximum no of students from a single university.

    Hello friend..............

    You want to know that
    "Is it good to tell that I already have a job offer in the interview?"
    Friend my point of view it is not necessary to tell you you get a job earlier it is your second.
    I hope if you say this they can take it as a negative manner they can also hope that you are not interested with this company then they will reject you.
    but if you take it as that the first job which you get gives you batter salary but you want to check if this company after hearing this they offered you high salary than the other then it will help you and this point of view you can get much salary.
    But you have to take the decision what you want to do its purely depends upon you.

    So all the best for your next interview.

    If you want to know anything you can leave at pramatha.


    Thank you.
