QuoteOriginally posted by: DDUKON"A's offer only stands for this week." - Is this a BLUFF ?quite likely not a bluff. More like standard, they want to see your commitment. You can try to get back to them and ask to extend it by saying it's important career decission, you like the job blah blah, obviously don't say you need time to wait for another job offer. If they don't allow it, don't push too much, accept it. And then use it negotiate better offer with B. If B offers, accept, and professionally get back to A saying you can't join them, no need for details, the less you say the better. They won't like it, but tough luck. End of story.
