Hey guys,
I am a senior at a non target school and already accepted an offer of one firm. I know that it is not my dream job and recently got invited from another firm that I have applied at quite a long time ago. As I have always wanted to work at that firm, I want to interview with them. Should I tell them that I already have accepted an offer? I am thinking about shopping with the offer, or is that stupid?

No, you just do a normal interview. You can use your other offer as bargaining tool should you be extended an offer.

Cheers. Can I use the other offer as a bargaining tool even when I already accepted it?

Yeah, just dont say you've accepted it at any point

Exactly. And as you are a senior and at a non target you don't really have to worry about being banned from OCR etc.
