UCLA True Bruin
Trudy Bruin, a junior communications major, has had a successful OCR experience for summer internships. She has offers from two local, mid-sized marketing firms, each of them giving her the standard two-week period to make a decision. After attending a recent networking event, though, she has become very interested in a large, multinational public relations firm. They expressed preliminary interest in her, but their interviews do not begin for three more weeks. As there are no guarantees, Trudy is thinking about accepting one of the offers in hand, but still pursuing the more preferred PR internship. Is this ethical? How should she handle this situation?
