If the one you've already been offered is only for a month and there's no chance of them keeping you on I'd say don't bother with it. If you don't get the second one you've only missed out on 4 weeks work whereas if you got offered both and took the first one neither party might like you either delaying or moving the start date forward! When will you know about the other one?

bit of a dilemma alright ... depends on what the job is I suppose, lots of people get short term contracts extended, but is the other job the one you'd prefer?

If it was me I'd take the first job and let everything else play out ... :|

Yeah tell me about it, lol the one offered is only a temp job, doing surveys, giving/helping people with questionnares, field work, seeing the weather is ok at the moment make bit of a change of being in office + giving me bit experience doing something bit different, make or break as to if i like it or not, if its winter hell no fo sure! its only done this time of year every year & it ends in june for everyone so no one get a permanent position anyway, only reason the money is good ! whereas the other job i got interviewed for is admin job, more less same job i did before by no means bad thing, that would start may 31st if i did get it.
