Talk To Your Recruiters

Recruiters are not aliens from another planet. They are people too.  Their goal  is to find the best candidate(s) for positions within their respective organizations. One of the best way that they can determine fit is by having honest conversations with their recruits.  Transparency is difficult if you fail to be open and refrain from asking questions about issues that may impact your decision to join the firm.   For instance, it’s okay to let  a recruiter know that you have other offers.  Revealing this  bit of information will help them to determine whether they will expedite the interview process  to ensure their hiring managers have an opportunity to meet with you BEFORE you accept with another organization.  If you have questions or concerns about the nature of the work or details of the offer convey  your sentiments to the HR contact.   Most recruiters want to know what you are thinking and feeling and  they will do their best to help you resolve these issues.  In having  the conversation you provide an opportunity clear the air and ensure all parties are on the same page.  Be polite and professional and remember you are speaking to a person who wants be sure that you are the best possible fit for their company.   In having candid conversations and asking meaningful questions you increase the likelihood that you are making an informed decision rather than relying or hearsay.
