I was offered 5 new grad positions between 2 hospitals, I accepted a position where the starting salary was a 3 dollar pay cut and no sign on bonus of $3000. I knew this when I accepted the other position and said to myself money isn't everything. But after searching for apartments in the area where I would be living 1bd/ba range from $1200-1600/m!!!! I know I cannot afford to live their and should have factored that in before accepting the position. In the other area where the pay is more, 1bd/1b rage from $750-$1200/m which is still cheaper than the other.
I need a tacful way of turning down the position I already accepted but not before calling back the other of course. I accepted the position last week and would not be starting until August 11 and for the other hospital Aug 25.
Advice please.... thanks in advance !
