I interviewed at Private Language School A on Wednesday and was offered a position as a substitute teacher. The interviewer said there was lots of sub work coming up and a good possibility of getting a permanent class but gave me no specific dates or guarantees.
I interviewed at Private Language School B for a summer contract position with possibility of long-term employment and think I did well but haven't been given a decision yet.
I need to follow up with both schools today but I don't know what to say because I'm not sure if I'll take either job. School A seems like it might be the nicer place to work for a few reasons, but School B is definitely a good fit as well and would guarantee employment for the full summer if they accept me.
I want to keep both options open, but how do I follow up when I'm not sure if I'll accept the job? Is it safe to tell School A that their school seems wonderful and I would be happy to work there, but will have to decline if I'm offered a longer-term position elsewhere? Or is it better to write an enthusiastic email implying that I will definitely accept the job, and them politely decline later on if it turns out I'm no longer available?
