This question already has an answer here:
I had an interview last week with a company that I'm really interested in and they called me two days ago to let me know that I got offered the role.
The issue is, this past Sunday I had an interview with another company which is like my dream job, and the pay is much higher! After the interview on Sunday, the recruiter mentioned how interested she is with my experience and all that which really gave me hopes.
The company that offered me the role will be sending me the contract to read on this coming Sunday and they expect me to reply back on Monday. The "dream job" company said that they'll let me know by next week if I'm in or not.
Now, I wouldn't mind taking the offer but I do not want to deal with the embarrassment of leaving on the first week in case I got accepted in the "Dream job" company.
How should I proceed without ruining either opportunity?
