Do you have any other offer at hand?

Do you have any other offer at hand?

This is usually a closing question and they might want to know how actively you are looking for a job. Usually give an honest answer and say why you are looking for another job with that offer at hand.

  • This question can be very intimidating. You might want to answer in affirmative to give them an impression that you are being sought by other companies as well but fear that it would lessen your chances since they know you have other choices. You might want to answer in negative but that would make you appear as someone who hasn't much option and would desperately take up their offer even with a lesser salary. This question can really confuse you if you aren't prepared for it in advance.

    If you do have offers awaiting your confirmation, you can tell them so but might want to keep the names confidential until you have decided where you want to be. If you are answering in affirmative, do remember to mention that you find the offer good but the position and work does not interest you as much as the one for which you are interviewing currently. You can add that since you find their position more interesting and in accordance to your qualification, there you are at the moment, sitting for the interview.

    If you do not have any offer waiting, you can say so without any hesitation and also mention that you were at an early stage of job search when you came across their opening and since you found it suitable to you, you haven't paid much heed to apply to other places
