Dear Theo, I am a PGCE student and have recently been applying for jobs, of which there is a shortage in my subject. I was lucky enough to be offered an interview at my dream school, School A, next week. However, another school, School B (which is also nice but not my dream school) have contacted me giving me two days' notice for interview. I replied saying that I would be unable to attend (as I would prefer to work in School A, so if I was offered the job in School B before the interview with School A I would turn it down), but have been contacted by the Deputy Head of School B saying that he understands I cannot attend the interview this week and wants to see if we can come to some kind of compromise. I understand that in this current job climate I am fortunate to be being offered interviews but I don't know how to deal with this situation. I am aware that I may not get the job at School A and could end up unemployed. I am considering potential options. Should I: - be honest with School B and say that I am already committed to an interview next week but may be available for interview afterwards? - contact School A, let them know my situation and see if they could interview me earlier? - do something else? Help!
