Query about a prospective job situation

Hi S.A.,

Do you have a written job offer for the application scientist position? If so and I were in your shoes, I would try to contact the hiring manager for the in-house position and determine where they are in the search. If they say anything other than "we want to interview you and you are our number one candidate" then I would take the field job. The jobs are pretty similar in many ways (same company, same technology). But a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush most especially when we're talking about your first job out of graduate school.

Congratulations on getting the offer! For unrelated reasons, if you have time I would love to talk with you offline about the chromatography/MS technology you plan to use in these positions. My email is shown here.

Good luck,
