    Some advice please

    I've applied for a job i really want the company always get a big response for their vacancies and the closing date is next week it's work i'm really interested in but i also have a application for another job i'm not keen on but i know i have a better chance of getting it as you don't need any experience and they want someone to start asap and i really need a job asap. The pay for both is about the same for both jobs.

    Do i apply for the one i don't really want just in case or do i just wait for a reply from the other one? I don't really want to start one job then have to leave!


    Apply for both and see what happens- if the one you don't really want offers you the job, you don't *have* to take it, so I'd apply anyway and go from there.
