Although I am enjoying my current job, I am planning to move to another company as I would like to learn new technology. However, I think that the problem that I am facing now is somewhat ethical. Recently I have interviewed a candidate for my current company and gave an offer. I honestly explained about the job description and I assured him that he will enjoy the job. As part of the interview, I also shared how I am enjoying at my current position etc.,(which is true). It looks like, he is very much interested in the position and I guess that my experiences that I have shared with him also impacted his decision of joining my current company. He accepted the offer and he is going to join in a couple of months. I would be supervising him if he joins my current company.
Actually, I didn't have any ideas of moving to another company while I was interviewing this candidate. This candidate has been in touch with me from the day of the interview. Now, I am almost decided to move to another company (within a month). The following are my options. I request you to please help me to decide.
"I would like to call him once I resigned my current job and tell him that I am moving to another company as I am looking for new challenges. However, I would like to tell him that he will enjoy the projects here at my current company."
I hope that this will give me peace. However, he might share this information to my current company management and I will become bad in their books. It is like burning bridges.
"Keep quiet. Don't communicate with him at all about my plans."
If I do this, he might think that I cheated him etc. I cannot bear these thoughts.
