So, I’m looking for a new job. Last Tuesday, I had a pretty good interview for a really great position. They have since contacted my references, so I think I am certainly in the running. They are looking for two people for a full-time positions, which fits my skills very well. The interviewer mentioned that the organization is doing a lot of hiring right now, and that HR was snowed under, and the hiring process might take a while - that it was possible they would not let me know the outcome until the New Year.
I also applied for a part-time (3/4) position at the same organization. It is still a good fit for me, just not AS good. And, I would rather work full-time. They have just contacted me to invite me to interview for this position next week - on Monday, in fact.
Obviously, I have to tell the recruiter for the PT position that I’m in the interview process for the other job. My question: at what point? In the email I’m about to send, accepting the interview? When I get there, before the interview? After the interview? It’s also possible the panel will include interviewers from the last interview.
Or do I have it all wrong, and I should keep it under my hat? This is a very small organization, and I really don’t want to step on anyone’s toes… nor do I want to waste anyone’s time.
Advise me, o Millions!
