Alright, I've applied for two jobs and two companies.
Job at Company A: It's a good job with good pay and benefits. It's not what I want to do long term, but they are prepared to offer me a position.
Job at Company B: It's the job of my dreams. I've always wanted this exact job, at this exact company...but they haven't made an offer yet. I interviewed for the job yesterday, and they said they would be in touch in the coming weeks.
My Problem: It's a classic "Bird in the Hand" situation. I'm not sure what to do. Is it acceptable to request that Company A wait for a little while? Will they be offended?
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
