Went to an interview last week (thursday), screwed up abit in the front part (interviewer demanded a self introduction which would amaze him, ayam terkejut and screwup abit, but eventually picked up and the interview process went on for around an hour+) In the end the HR and the HOD told me they will get back to me in 2 weeks regarding the result.

My question is, would it be rude if I email the HR and goreng abit, saying I got another offer but still interested in working for your company and wanna know what's the result (in a more formal and polite way of course)

Thanks sifus for the advice blush.gif blush.gif

Instead of telling you have another offer, which you might have or you might not..

Best to let them know that you are very interested to work in their esteemed company and would like to know the results before looking out for other opportunities

why so kancheong? people already say 2 weeks then just wait 2 weeks.

I had a similar situation. Went to interview with X then silence. A month later I interviewed with Y & got an offer after 2 weeks (i.e. T+6w). Only then did I email X to ask them whether they're going to proceed & got a reply within 24 hours with an offer.

No need to goreng lah. obviously if u follow up with them its already showing your interest.

Since they mentioned 2 weeks then just wait 2 weeks then u can follow up ask for update. No need to mention anything else.

No need to goreng. It can work as a double edged sword. They may respond that you can proceed with the other offer first, and they will contact you if you succeed. And if you indeed succeed after say 1 month, they will call you before making LO. They will then likely ask you on your previous offer, then what are you going to say?

If they called your bluff, you may even get some demerit points in their books.

Unless if you have a genuine offer in hand, I would not suggest you do that.

If 2 weeks no news from them, then you know where you stand.

no point to call. if hiring manager want you, you will get it. if give a call to follow up can get the job, many will get the job already...

You can try to ask but you will probably get a standard response or non-response.

If you still have the contact details, try calling them up and request for feedback.

Unless you are very valuable, saying that you got another offer will backfire. If they have a few candidates in mind, they will just let you go instead.

However, if you were head hunted or if you are highly in demand in the market, it would help you in the sense that the HR will follow up your application a bit more urgently. Most of the time, top priority candidates get their applicatiom sign off quicker anyway. As such, my conclusion is you are not a top priority hire by the company and best is to just wait for the news while applying for other jobs.
