    if vs should

    Hi,


    Are the following 2 sentences have the same meaning?

    Which one is better?



    Sentence1:

    If any additional opportunities for interviews become available, I would greatly appreciate the opportunity for an personal interview.

    Sentence2:
    Should any additional opportunities for interviews become available, I would greatly appreciate the opportunity for an personal interview.


    Thanks

    They mean the same. I'd use the first in speech and keep the second for writing.
