I am currently a final year student and will graduate in June 2018. I want to start working full time in 2018.
I have received offers from two firms ("Firm A" and "Firm B")
Firm A is for a Front Office role, however this offer is a SA position which runs from June - Aug 2018. The return offer rate during the past few years is approx 50%
Firm B is for a Middle Office role, however this is a FT position which starts in Sep 2018.
If I receive a return offer from Firm A, FT will likely start in summer 2019, so I could just start working at Firm B in Sep 2018, stay there for a year then quit in 2019 and start working at Firm A.
If I do not receive a return offer from Firm A I can just start working at Firm B in Sep 2018 and stay there for a few years.
As there is no overlap, if I accept both offers I am able to fulfill both commitments without reneging, therefore would it be "OK" to accept both offers?
I understand both firms might have their hesitations (both firms might question my commitment), would it be preferable to be upfront and inform both firms about the situation, or should I not mention it?
