What is more important: being professional or being a good friend?
Craig: Why aren't you sure you should give Rebecca the job?
Rachel: Because she's not the best applicant. Gary Roberts is perfect for this position.
Craig: But if you give Gary the position, you're worried about how Rebecca will feel.
Rachel: Right. I don't want her to get upset or hurt.
Craig: Is deciding who gets the position completely your decision?
Rachel: Well, HR has some input, but they said I should make the final decision.
Craig: Does Rebecca need to know that though?
Rachel: I guess not. Hey, that’s it ! I'll give Gary the position, but I'll let Rebecca think HR insisted on him. That way Rebecca doesn't get hurt, and the best person gets the job!
Craig: Do you think this position is a good fit for Rebecca?
Rachel: Not really. She'd be excited at first. But I think she'd get overwhelmed after a while.
Craig: Well, you could give this position to the best applicant. But then you could help Rebecca find a position that's a better fit for her.
Rachel: Hmm. I could.But I wonder if she'd feel bad if I tell her I don't think she's right for this position.
Craig: She might. Or she might really appreciate your advice.
Rachel: True. And I guess this might be best for everybody.
Craig: I think so. Go for it, honey! I'm sure she'll thank you later.
