I know this is a site for women, but I value the responses I read here.
Please advise: My husband has been out of work for over 2 years. He's applied recently for 2 local positions which he is qualified; one is a much better fit. He's a final candidate for one position. The director of the organization (who he knows personally) and the HR rep have directly asked him if he accepts this job, and the other local job (which is a high profile position in the community) offers him a job, will he stay? He has only submitted paperwork for the 2nd job, no interview or other contact. This seems inappropriate at least. Both individuals brought up the subject of the other position first with him. How can he best handle this situation besides reiterating his desire to stay if hired? I'm envisioning a worst case scenario of no job.
