I've been invited to an interview next Monday. Firstly, that's brilliant, I'm very grateful! However, there may end up being a problem with clashing interviews and a difficult decision to be made. I've read several previous threads on here about interviews on the same day. That has helped me to understand the general rules about job offers and so on and I've read how some people have dealt with the problem but I'm still not sure what I should do for the best. There is another school I've applied to which I REALLY loved when I visited and I got a very good vibe from the head teacher, who seemed eager to have my application. Their interviews are due to be held on Monday and Tuesday next week. The closing date for that job isn't until Friday so I won't find out if I've even been shortlisted until at least Friday evening. If I'm not, there's no issue of course! But if I'm lucky enough to be invited to an interview there, I don't know what to do about the interview I've already got booked. I could end up logistically being able to attend both, especially if this second school offers me an interview on Tuesday. But as things stand I'd only be able to go to it on Tuesday if I'm unsuccessful at the first interview on Monday. I would be completely crazy to turn the first job down if offered with the job market how it is! Also it's not a bad job, on paper it's a much "better" school, I just didn't get the same feeling about it. If invited to an interview at the second school which I prefer, I could hedge my bets and choose to only go to that one, but I feel like it's a big risk when trying to get my first job. I don't even know if I can turn down the interview I've already agreed to without being incredibly rude and giveing myself a bad name. As I said this problem may not even arise and I could be left with this one interview, which is still a great opportunity. I just can't stop thinking at the moment about all the implications!
