Default Interview procedure

Hi guys,
I am graduating soon. Not much experience in going job interviews.

If i have a couple of companies in mind to apply, should I apply all at once and go for the interviews, and then choose the firm which i want to work at? The problem is how much time do the companies give me to consider their offers?

I just wonder if a company wants my service, how much time can they give me to consider accepting it? because in the meantime i will be going for other interviews.

Usually they will give u 1 week to consider. That is why you should apply to companies/job that you wanna work with. So that whoever offer first and the package is acceptable to you, bite it.

yup usually only 1 week or less to consider.. so you dun have time to wait for others to offer and compare.. usually u'll have to accept the first to offer if the pay is acceptable.. the whole recruitment process can take months so you never know which company is gonna offer first..

Don't just sit at home and apply online.

For jobs you are really interested in, send snail/postal mail. Or call to speak to the hiring manager of that department.

good luck!
