What should I do with mulitple job opprotunities?

Post by 462Tech on Wed Jul 13, 2011 1:03 pm

Need some advice. I have several leads for job opprotunities however, I submitted an application for a position last week and waiting for a possible interview. My question is; should I persue these other leads or wait?
I've been through this before and found myself turning down offers because I was waiting for the "one". Any thoughts or suggestions?

Don't wait! With the number of applicants for each job, there is a good chance you may not get an interview, and if you do, there is no guarantee you will get the job!

Follow up on as many potential job leads as possible!

If I were you I would take the first one that offers a job to you, then continue to pursue the one you want. That way if the one you want doesn't work out you will still have the job that you accepted to fall back on. Also it will help fill in any gaps in your resume.

You can only keep an employer waiting that wants to hire a few days at most.
