I can but I feel horrible lying. December 1st is my anniversary... I was off half of Tuesday and all Wednesday so I could take the rest of my vacation days, so technically I start with a new set of vacation days. I could claim I have a doctor's appointment and it might take a long time so I'm just taking a whole half day off? Or I could make up something with the house... but I feel really really bad lying. =/ I'm not sure what to do, but I know I DO want to interview at this place. It's really relevant to my interests... I think I'll enjoy it.
ughhhh but then I'm worried the other place will make me an offer and I'll take it and then THIS place will make me an offer and what will I do??

Can you just say you have an appointment and leave it at that?

Also, if you get an offer from the first place, it's totally fine to tell them that you are waiting to hear from another company you've interviewed with before you make any decisions. I was in that spot a few years ago and they totally understood that I needed to have all the info possible before I accepted an offer.

I wish, but they always want to know what my appointment is. It's none of their business but they always ask. Even when I take a vacation day they're all "so what are you doing, why do you need the day off?" NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.

I just can't imagine if I told a company "well I'm interested but I'm waiting to hear from another place too" that they wouldn't go "ooookay well in that case never mind." =/ And then what if I DON'T get an offer from the second place - then I've blown my chance to get a better paying job... are places seriously cool with being put on hold? I've never had this happen before, I just can't believe they would be. =/

Worked for me - I mean it wasn't like a month, but I think I said I needed at least a week. I would NEVER give them an answer on the spot - my husband took 3 or 4 days to get back to his last offer because we wanted to assess the offer thoroughly and he was waiting to hear back from another possibility as well.

If you PM me the make and model of your car I can help you with that. You just leased it new from the dealership, right?

1. You don't have to tell them anything. It's an appointment should always suffice. If it doesn't, you just can tell them it's the sort of thing you really can't talk about at work. Look awkward and uncomfortable and they'll assume it's lady issues or GI issues and won't bring it up.

2. Tell them you need a week to decide, and that you appreciate their offer. Don't say why - they'll assume you're reviewing other offers, which means that you're in demand because you're awesome. Even if they don't worry about it (because most employers don't worry about things like that) they'll just think you know how to play the game. Because you never accept an offer on the spot.

Got soooo much sleep over the past day that I'm not tired at all. Should make for an interesting day tomorrow!

Speaking of.. I leave in 5.5 hours for an agility/conformation/obedience trial with an agility friend. I've heard their vendors are awesome. Hoping to get a big chunk of secret santa shopping done there.

Can't believe I didn't post sooner but I got a new (to me) car on Monday! I love it! It's a 2001 Buick Lasabre with leather (heated!!) seats and a window that actually rolls down, and air conditioning/heat that works, and I just love it! The van I was driving had no a/c and the drivers window didn't roll down, so this is luxury lol!
