I'm in a dilemma. I had an interview at Sephora on Thursday. On Friday I e-mail my resume for a job as admin coordinator at a brand representation agency. They haven't responded back yet because it was the weekend but I JUST got a call from Sephora saying I've been hired. I told the girl I would give her a response in 24 hours because I needed to work out some scheduling issues (she didn't sound pleased at all....but they can't exactly reneg just because I didn't want to accept on the spot, right?). The other job is just for admin but i haven't done an admin position before so it would give me experience in that area. Plus, it could open up some opportunities. I'm not sure about the pay. I think it'll be on par with Sephora or less with no benefits. The Sephora job is part-time with the benefit of discounts, freebies, etc., it's much closer to home, and would be relatively flexible. So the problem is..... If I apply to Sephora, how do I tell the other company before they've even had a chance to respond to me, that I'm not taking it without seeming really unprofessional? (My professor actually recommended me...the person is actually a close family friend of his) Or....should I risk it by passing on Sephora when the other job isn't a sure thing? I mean, it could be the most amazing thing ever but then again...it could be really bad. HELP!!
