You and your best friend have been hunting for a new job. She's been out of work for three months and is nearly flat broke, and you detest your current job. She sends you a link to an awesome opening that she applied for at a company you would die to work for. You're perfectly qualified for the position so you decide to apply as well.
You're both completely shocked when you end up being the final two candidates. When they call to make you an offer, your excitement is bittersweet since you know that your friend needs the job more than you do. With that said, the huge salary jump and the prospect of quitting your job is pretty enticing. If you decline the offer, you know they'll extend it to your BFF, but the thought of passing up this opportunity is hard to swallow.
Competing with a close friend isn't a new concept, but tell me, how would you handle this?
