Similiar to the below responses, the seller may be willing to rent depending on the reasons he is selling. If you don't feel comfortable calling and asking the seller or the real estate agent (if its listed with a realtor) , I would be happy to do it for you.
As far as the mortgage. Even with the lending enviroment being tight, guidelines do vary amongst mortgage companies depending on your credit, income etc. As far Job history, for FHA loans, as long as you are in the same field for the past 2 years changing jobs should not disqualify you.

Changing jobs should not affect qualiifcation unless you have gone from a salaried position to one of commision. As for the lease option it never hurts to ask.

Don't sell yourself short! Have you gone to mortgage professional to discuss your ability to qualify to buy this home? Look for a local licensed mortgage planner with a CMPS designation. Just because you changed jobs doesn't necessarily mean you won't qualify for a mortgage.
All the best,
