This question already has an answer here:
My situation: I just summer semester graduated in computer science (M.Sc.) from a german university and am currently applying for jobs. The market for IT graduates in Germany is good.
Based on the responses from my potential employers so far, I fear that a scenario like this is going to happen soon:
- Company A offers me a position I kind of like (8/10), starting time in a few weeks.
- Company B, with a nearly perfect job offering (10/10 for me) invites me to an interview in a few weeks time.
Obviously, I do not want to take offering A if I can have B – but B is not guaranteed. How can I deal with this situation? A knows that, legally, I could start within weeks. Delaying them would probably tell them that their offering is not the perfect one for me.
