What to say?


What do you say? I accepted an offer but another offer came up weeks later while waiting for physical exam and background check to clear?

I would like to make a phone call rather than email. I could make it easy and notify Personnel but I think it would be also appropriate to talk directly to the supervisor as well.

I'm just a little lost for words... not sure what to say?

If you wanted to...

What the above poster said.

I had that happend. Right out of school I accepted a position. Then I got a job offer at the job I REALLY wanted. I called and said that I appreciate their offer, but I was also offered a job at a position that was a better fit for my goals. The hiring DON thanked me for calling right away and being honest- and to keep them in mind if I'm ever job searching in the future.
