    So my situation is, today I just landed a part-time job at Currys-PC World. I start my training on Monday 18-07-16. Just now, a couple of hours after I got the part-time job at Curry I received an e-mail for a company (I really want to work for and its in the industry I want to make my career in) I applied for like 4 weeks ago saying they would like to interview me. No dates set but it will be in the next 2 weeks. If I land this job, I know it is acceptable to leave a job for another job, but I've heard with Currys, apart of the contract is you need to work a certain amount of time. I'm not sure, if anyone who worked at Currys before can help me out. Thanks!

    Dont stress about it, nobody's goingto sue you for leaving a student job. Just give your notice and leave when you get the new job.

    What should I do if they put a fixed term contract in front of me? Is there ways out of fixed term contracts or am I screwed in that scenario. I don't mind working at Currys, its a nice store and a bit of money, but I've spent the last 4 years studying I.T and want a careers in IT. This other job is a good opportunity for me.

    I've already given you the answer. Nobody cares if you leave, anybody can take your job.
