I have recieved a job offer from a company 2 weeks back. I have resigned from my current organisation, notified the last date, provided all required documents for joining, and also recieved a date of joining from the new company.
I was contacted about this position by a recruiter who was probably hired by the company to reach out to potential candidates.
Now this recruiter has called me and asked me about my interest to join the new place because she saw my status on a job portal as "active". When I replied that I am definitely interested in the new job - she even asked me if I can delete my profile from the job portal, which I refused stating that I cannot probably pull down all my career related info because I have an offer and she some what came to an agreement (didn't sound too happy about it).
Now my question is :
- Is asking me to pull down my profile a valid request?
- Is she likely getting pushed by the company HR to do this?
- Can my negative response to this request have any impact on the offer?
Let me know please.
P.S: The offer is pretty decent and a good percentage above my current salary. I am reluctant to pull down my career profiles because I am not feeling very secure in the present covid situation and want to have options open.
