Have you ever accepted a job offer and changed your mind even before you started?

  1. How did you go about telling the employer about your mind change?

    I had to do that once, in my past career. I called the HR person to turn down the offer since the paperwork was already completed, and then I called the person back who was technically going to be my boss that I had interviewed with. In this case, I had received another job offer that I couldn't refuse so I explained that to the person. They were disappointed, and I felt like a heel, but it's a part of life. I also thanked them for the offer because you never know - that person could come back an haunt you in the future. As big as the world is, you never want to burn bridges, because it really is a small world. Hope that helps!
