Hi all, I am currently a school counselor, I have been interviewing for jobs and i received an offer from Job A. I am waiting to hear back from Job B, my preferred job. Job A is working at. K-8 school and a large case load, and it doubles my commute. Job B is my preferred age group, a smaller caseload and a much easier and shorter commute. Job A wants an answer by end of day today and Job B said they’d get back to me early this week. I don’t want to settle for Job A if I don’t have to :(

I know how that feels, been there. I'd call up Job B today and politely let them know what the deal is. You may end up forcing their hand but if they know anything about the interview process they'll understand. And if they truly are a place worth working for they'll appreciate you being upfront and having integrity.

I’m so glad I did email and they responded so quickly, I wanted to be fair to both sides!

Definitely call job B and tell them that their position is perfect for you and that you have another offer but prefer their offer (lay it on thick) see if they can expedite the process or at least tell you if you’re in the top two - good luck!

Get a piece of paper, write Pros on one side and Cons on the other for both jobs. Whichever job has the most Pros is the way to go.

Take A, call them back when B calls and tell them you found something else. You owe no one just because they were polite during an interview. 2/3 of the people in the interview will make you miserable before they year's out anyway. Same can be said for job B, but at least it's closer and better for you.

Ok, so I emailed the principal, now I anxiously await his reply 🤞

Hey everyone, I need some advise. I've been interviewing for a company for the last 4weeks.

I wasn't even okaay with Xk tbh, and now they've gone ahead and reduced it by 10k! I'm attending the final round on Friday - do y'all have any tips on how I can negotiate my salary to X+10 and let them know that this is highly unprofessional?

Does it make sense to have a common data strategy and a single data lake across this products? What are the benefits?
