---jas66kent One day JSA666kent is going to give you resume advice, Westley. BUT, most people expect you to ask questions, and they view that as showing interest. The best questions are always ones that arise in the normal course of the interview - they are tied to what the interviewer asks you, or the thought is sparked by the interviewer.
There's a lot of approvals and whatnot to go through to get numbers approved, so it takes a while.
In my company, when we make an offer, if there's negotiation, the HR person goes back to the local office manager (who may be travelling that day) to get his input, then goes to the national director (who may have meetings that day) to get his answer (he decides), then runs it up two level higher to get simple signature approvals (either of them could have a vacation day).
Also, if they respond by pointing out (for example) that you only get two weeks of vacation, but the company has more holidays - 18 - than most, plus you also get to take a minimum of five sick days, so if you're never sick, that's additional time off, the response is "Great, that's good to know, thanks for sharing that with me - that's a pretty generous policy".
Basically, while you're telling them all the good stuff that you are leaving behind, they are going to tell you all the good stuff that you are walking into, which is fair enough.
Something like "I do have four weeks of vacation here, so if I'm taking a step down on that, I have to take that into consideration, of course".Think about how bad it sounds to write in an email: "I want more money." Now, think about how it sounds in a conversation as part of the discussion about ho wmuch you like the company, how excited you are to get the offer, etc.I would call the person that is coordinating (probably HR) and ask where they're at in the process.If the company has told you that they will make an offer, but they have not actually made an offer (i.e., no numbers have been mentioned). I would make sure to start off by politely apologizing for bothering them, you're not trying to be impatient, but you are very excited about the opportunity, so you are just checking back to see what the status is. "I wanted to mak you aware that by leaving Company X, I am giving up (name as much stuff as you can).I'm definitely interested in your company, but I have a pretty good situation here that I am leaving behind as well, so I just want you to know where I am coming from.
