Good Morning! I am hoping some people can help me out and point me in the right direction. I recently applied for an internal promotion at my company, and I am fortunate to have an interview in 2 weeks. One of the other internal candidates who did apply for the same position, is no longer in the running as he accepted another job. Now, the situation is that if I did not get the first job I am applying for, I would absolutely in a heartbeat want the position this person is vacating. The position I am currently applying and interviewing for is a management position. The position that this other person is vacating is a lead application development position, all within the same group.

They may move quicker on this vacated position over the management position. Do I make mention to the managers and directors (who will be interviewing me in two weeks), that I am also interested in the position this person is vacating? They have not posted this job yet or anything, and no one here knows if they are going to fill it, or just break up the responsibilities among everyone else.

I honestly really want either one of these jobs. This came completely out of left field as this person also had an interview next week for the management position. Originally, if he got the management job, I was going to approach our managers and directors about his vacated job....but this completely changes things.

Any thoughts on how I should proceed?

Where is the one you don't want? I need a job.
