    So I have got myself in a difficult situation and wonder if anyone has any advise. I was offered a job and will be starting it next week but i have been offered an interview for a job i have really wanted this week. It is also my last week at my current job this week. Do i mention it in the interview that i am starting a new position next week and say this was the only job that got back to me when i was job searching? I am really confused as to what i should do

    Start your new job and go to the interview. Don't mention it because they don't need to know. If you are offered the job and decide to take it, you just resign from the job you've just started. Normally within the first 3 months or so you can resign with immediate notice.

    Yup, DrawTheLine is correct.
    We've all done it, you feel bad but you have to take the job you would prefer.

    Nah wouldn't think so, esp that short term. I'd just bend the truth a bit and say I was considering other offers. If you get and accept the new job just rip the band off with the old one, just be honest.
