Hi all, i recently had a PM interview and got a feedback from the recruiter saying they want to interview more candidates before giving me a decision. The team likes me but the HM wasnt sure if i can join and immediate run the project. Recruiter said i should reach out if i get another offer, which will probably take a while since i wasnt actively looking. I really like the project so i want your advise. Here are three choices i had and would like help from you guys.

    Then you should look for other companies too.

    Anytime you approach a company, you should always tell them you are actively interviewing and expecting offers from others at any time.

    Notice how they want to interview others but if you get other offers suddenly they want to know. Having other opportunities is leverage in your favor.

      Thanks, I will start but not sure if I should do anything to fight for the position since I really like the project.

      Dropping a 3 line note about “interest in the project” won’t hurt. But beyond that, I won’t even bother to wait for the reply and aggressively interview at other places.

      That is the most pragmatic approach I would take.

      I see. So you won’t suggest to try to impress?

      No - the more you impress , it will put them off more. It’s like a girl friend who doesn’t like you, if you cry and beg to take you back she will hate you more , if the gf sees you with other woman and not caring about her , she will come back.

      Not too desperate at all. You didn't apply if you weren't interested lol

    Just like dating, she doesn’t want to be exclusive yet, in case a better guy comes along. Well, if I were you I’d find another offer then tell her about it. If she suddenly wants you, enjoy the satisfaction in letting her know that it’s too late.

      I know. I just don’t know if I should bring up the HM’s confidence in me or just move on. If I didn’t like the project, I would have just left it like this

      While your hiring manager is important, his boss is just as important, if not more so. Your career in that company doesn’t rely on him alone. If they have doubts, you can be stuck in the same position forever.
