Things have changed since I accepted a job offer. How should I raise my concerns to my new employeer?
This takes place in Europe. I work in IT.
So I was contacted by a recruiter a while back about an opportunity at a relatively large company, an investment company, call it A. After some interviews they offered me a job which I accepted promptly. So far so good. This was a couple of weeks ago and I'll start working at A in about two months.
My girlfriend works in IT as well. Her career has taken off and she was recently contacted by a headhunter from a company (call it B) abroad and has passed two remote interviews with them. Now she's been invited to come visit as a last step in the interview process, in about a week..
If she gets the job, we will probably move there since this is a great opportunity for her and I don't want to stand in her way. The timing could have been better though...
A is an international company with business all around the world, and if I remember correctly the hiring manager mentioned that they have some 'IT people' stationed in B's country. The dream scenario would be that I could be stationed there, I don't know if this is possible but I would like to ask..
....so to the question...
How should I handle this? I really want to work with company A. Should I try to raise this issue with them and ask if it is possible to sort this out, maybe work remotely or from an office in B's country. And if I should raise this question when should I do it? Now or after my girlfriend has been offered a job? I feel that it's a good idea to be 100% transparent and let them know that we're considering this opportunity. But at the same time I want to emphasize how much I look forward working with them
