Dear Experts, I just read your article on why HR isn't that into you. I have a similar problem that has left me standing at the fork in the road. I have an internship and a job prospect and both second round interviews went great. I just got offered the internship with one agency, but I am absolutely obsessed with the other agency and the possibility of landing my first "job." The latest with the job prospect is the partner of the agency e-mailed me and wants me to come down and meet the rest of the people there once things aren't so hectic (no time frame). I feel if I take the internship, I loose the job prospect. Do I call the place and lay the cards on the table and tell them how passionate I am about their company, or sit tight and not hassle the HR department or the man who I have been in contact with?

Fast-forwarding to today, he expressed urgency to relaunch with a short game to start generating revenue quickly and a long-term plan to establish themselves in the space.
