Hey Monkeys -
Whenever I hear people talk about job offers here, they always seem to say they have a week or two until they need to let all offering companies know their decision.
How does this line up so nicely?
I am thinking of beginning to apply now for several different programs - no idea when they all start yet but I am only available from September on, so that's a border - but I wonder if I should wait to apply for all right at once or if I can get an offer and say "I want two months to decide because it doesn't start for four"...
What's the deal on that? Could anyone talk about their experiences with the first-job process and are there any hiring managers who could tell me how they would react to such a statement (and what they normally would expect)?
