However, in today's day in age, companies often treat hiring like a transaction. Employees can be considered a number. If you weren't needed at your new job, they would eliminate your position. And, if you were to leave, they would certainly have another candidate that they could call as a backup.
If you are still very interested in the opportunity, one option is to keep working at your new job – and keep interviewing with the job you really like. Through the interview process, one of three things could happen. You may decide you don't like the company. The company may decide they don't like you. Or, they may offer you a job. If they extend a job offer, it may be one that you feel you can't refuse. Or, it may turn out to be less money or not quite what you were expecting.
In the off chance that you're offered a job that you cannot refuse, you may want to walk away from your current job. After accepting the new job offer, you can turn in your two weeks of notice at your current job. But, be ready for two things. First, your current job will be upset. You will very likely burn a bridge there. Second, they may walk you out of the building the day you give your two weeks of notice. No employer wants a brand new employee to quit.
But, at the end of the day, you have to do what's best for you. The employer will do what's best for them.
