My partner has gone for 2 interviews for jobs last week. Job A has called her back for a second interview today and has since told her they will accept her. However Job B is alot better (work and money wise) and that second interview is on thurs and they can't bring it any closer because the guy is flying up from down south for it.
So here's the delima, Job A wants to know if she can start on monday, but they want to know the answer ASAP. Job B's second interview is not till thursday so i dont think you can drag out the 'yes/no' untill then. Also Job B might not get back to her for a few days after (when the other job's first day will be).
So if she takes Job A, she might miss out on Job B, if she declines Job A for the chance of Job B and fails, then she's back to square 1 in the job search. It seems to rude to take job A and then quit in a few days if she get's Job B.
There's only two ways she can go, what way do you think she should go and more importantly why? She really doesn't know what to do so any ideas or reasons might make it clearer for her.
