I've been unemployed (by choice) for the past two months, but now I have two employment prospects on the horizon that may cause me some conflict.
A roommate has gotten me an interview with the company he works for, and I should hear back by the end of this week from them. I think it's pretty likely that they will make an offer and that it will be for about $32,000. It would be an office job with a pretty regular work schedule (9-6).
So here's where my dilemma starts... My uncle has also been helping me to get an interview with his company for a position that would likely pay much higher. (I think at least $45,000, but that's only an estimate.) The problem is that I wouldn't even be starting the assessment testing for a couple of weeks. If that goes well, then I would interview. I am definitely more interested in this job for both the salary and the more interesting work I'd be doing.
How would all of you handle the situation if the first company offers, but you still wanted to go through with your interest in the second company?
