Agree! Do what's right for you. The asshole interaction will last a few minutes. A new life in a new city lasts years.

Yes. Don't settle for less than what you really want if you don't have to.

like

Yes, why not? If you get the job and if you decide to take job, the other employer will understand if you are honest. Focus on why you are passionate about the dream role. Timing doesn't work out sometimes and people can hear back weeks/months after the interview. Give it a try right now, why not? Good luck!

Well the offer I have is more money.. But the city is also way more expensive to live in. However, it's not all about money :)

One is an offer, one is an interview. Consider that hou may interview only to find out your dream gig is a dud.

Even though it is still hypothetical, how do you handle going back on an offer you already signed? Seems like such an asshole move

You never know when this kind of opportunity might come around again. If it's all you say it is, you should go for it.

Don't count your chickens before they match. Go to the interview. Report back for further advice afterwards, depending on the outcome, before working yourself into a ball of worry. You could also bomb the interview. Too many unknowns but you lose nothing by this first step so take it one step at a time.

I vote you go ahead and interview. You have to make decision only if the job offer comes through; you don't need to worry about it before that. All the best.

I had this happen to me. Go for the dream job. I didn't and it haunts me every day.

Did this once. It sucked. But ultimately was SO happy I did it. Essentially I said yes to the first offer and then went on interviews for the second, eventually telling them I had another offer on the table when I felt good enough that they were mutually interested in me. Offer came the next day and I called the other company, explained that I was sorry but another opportunity arose that was better for my family (I was single at the time, whoops) and they were upset but understanding. No one will fault you for it, but be prepared to burn a bridge.

At the end of the day, companies are not your friends. They aren't people and you can't hurt their feelings. Look out for yourself and if you get the job, explain the situation to management and HR. They'll be annoyed, but they are people with careers and goals of their own, so if they are halfway decent human beings they will understand.
