I get linked with jobs and tell them I am interested but they offer it to a lower rep manager. Would they offer if if I applied to it? I am currently employed so don't want to apply in case I don't get it.
I tend to view getting linked as a club kinda flirting with you- they're interested and want you to apply, but if you act coy for too long they lose interest. And, of course, your current club don't like you making goo-goo eyes elsewhere.
On my current save game, I just applied for a job, and instead of getting threatened with the sack, there was a statement from the club saying how desperate they were for me to stay. I guess as I had untouchable status, and had done a great job, they didn't begrudge me the chance to leave.
That's a first for me though, as it's always turned ugly in the past when I've wanted to leave.
