    I hope that you will/can give me a chance

    Hi,

    Question:
    Which sentence is more correct?
    Any difference between sentence 1 and 2?

    Sentence1:
    I hope that you will give me a chance (to work at your firm).
    Sentence2:
    I hope that you can give me a chance (to work at your firm).

    Thanks
