Hiya!

OK, here's the deal.

I'm being considered by Company A as a programmer. This is actually my dream job.

This has been going on for about three weeks now.

In the meantime recruiter Company B has a telephone call lined up for me this afternoon. I'm certain I can land the temporary contract with Company B (staging, migration through August).

I reached out to Company A and advised them I would likely have an offer today from Company B. Company A advised me that they were just very busy right now, I'm still being considered but to advise them if I take the position with Company B.

I'm financially sound for the next three months (afterwards looks hairy).

If in my shoes, would you take the position with Company B, or hold out hope for the dream job with Company A?

In my opinion you have to take what is real and actually there, not what may be...

The "we are very busy right now" sounds more like "we aren't really looking to fill the position that hard and may not ever get back to you".

I would suggest going with what's tangible.
