    I've had 2 interviews this week, the 2nd interview is today which i'd prefer. I might not get either of them but what do i do if the 1st interview call me and offer me a job? I feel like it's rude to not give them an answer whilst i wait for another job that i might not even get. Should i just go for the first one that gets back to me?

    Just say "can I have a couple of days to think it over?"
    They're not going to say no...

    To be honest I'd just take the first job that you are offered incase you don't get the other one. The fact that both of your interviews are around the same time means you'll more than likely to hear back from them around the same time.

    If you take the job you want the least but then hear back from the one you want the most also offering you a position then take it and just call the other job and withdraw from it.

    I had to do the same thing today. Got offered a job on Tuesday that I wanted the least out of the few interviews I had but still took it just incase I didn't hear from the others. But got a call yesterday from the job I wanted the most offering me a position and I took it. Called the job I wanted the least today and just explained I'd been offered another job with better hours but thanks very much for the opportunity. They were fine with it.

    Good luck on your interviews!

    Ask if you can have a few days to get back to them. If they say, take the job you have been offered.
