I have to explain the difference in meaning of two sentences. I know that there is a difference but I'm having a hard time putting it into words. So if someone could give me a hand it would be greatly appreciated. Here are the two sentences:
1. If I get the job I will take it.
2. If I got the job I would take it.
Thanks in advance...
1) means that you have really applied for the job and think that you may actually get it.
2) means that you're discussing a hypothetical situation, and haven 't applied for any job.
