How to Decline a Final Round Interview?

 
#1 How to Decline a Final Round Interview?
17/04/2014 21:55

Hello guys.

I have applicated to lots of Consulting companies, including Bain, BCG, Roland Berger and some others Tier 2 firms.

I've already schedule my final round on Roland Berger and I've been called to go on the final round on another Tier 2 company, and I'll need to decline it.

Roland Berger will be doing a huge event as Final Round, with groups solving cases against each other all, so they will not postpone it.

In the other hand, this other company's Final Round are just regular interviews with Partners; so MAYBE it is possible to post-pone it to another day.

I'm here to ask for you guys advice. What should I tell to ask for a postponing? I find really unconfortable asking to postpone a final round; I mean, it's the most important round, what else can I have that's more important than it?

And I'm afraid of explaining that I have an interview in other company. I mean, they could understand it in two different ways: they could see me as a good candidate (as I'm being requested by lots of companies), or they could see me as a bad candidate, as I'm choosing the other company over they.

Regards,

Luiz

You haven't actually managed to say it in your post, but I presume you're issue is that the two companies have offered the final interviews on the same day.

It really isn't a big deal to ask for a different date from the other company. You're hugely over thinking it. There's no way to do both, therefore you must ask to delay one, so just do it?

I would not say you have another interview that day, as that is the same as saying they aren't your first choice firm (or you'd postpone the other). However perhaps you're abroad that day, or it's your cousin Barry's wedding day?

Just tell the other company that you have a final round interview at another firm and ask if they can reschedule you.

It's not a big deal and they won't hold it against you. If anything, showing that other companies want you will help your chances...
