I applied for a job. After two weeks they let me know that although I had enough skills and experience I won't be hired because of my three months notice period, and that they decided to hire another guy with a one month notice period.
After two days I received a phone with information that they changed their mind and they can hire me. I agreed but I told them that before I will resign from my current job I'd like to sign an agreement with them.
They told me that they don’t normally do that - the agreement would be signed on the day I report to work. However they proposed signing a letter of intent, which legally doesn't oblige them to hire me. I told them that I need one more day to think it through.
How should I lead the upcoming negotiations? Should I take the risk and agree?
