I have third (and final) round of interviews scheduled for next week with Qualcomm. The Qualcomm job is full-time, and in Colorado. In short, it's my dream job. Medtronic has been calling me and asking if I am interested in a job opportunity there, a contractor position which is less desirable, but 100% attainable if I want it. Now I am in a position where I would like to see through this Qualcomm opportunity before making a decision with medtronic. However, I don't want to burn any bridges by making them feel like a "second string" option. I feel that I have legitimate reasons for wanting the Qualcomm job first - it is full time and I need health insurance benefits, and would enjoy the job security. How can I prolong the Medtronic talks long enough to get closure with Qualcomm? Should I be honest with Medtronic about my situation?
