I have an issue. I am new to Enterprise consulting. I have 2 offers, but nothing concrete as of right now. One company said they will call me tomorrow for a position starting on Monday, potential 10 week contract or more.
The other company told me for sure they would have something early next week, but the main guy is out this week.
Question: How do I go about accepting contract gigs? I don't want to lose the other company for future contracts, so do I contact them only when I have the contract/plane ticket in hand, or do I give them a heads up I might have something else.?
My gut tells me first come, first served and let the other company know when I will approximately be available. Any insight would be greatly appreciated !
