I made a very rash decision now I am regretting it to the bone. I accepted a conditional letter from a company for a full time job while working in a per-week job. I was asked when I would like to resume and I filled in two weeks in order for my Criminal check and Background information to be received.
Then after I gave my notice within the company. I know its a rash thing to do but I told my boss because I knew they will call him up for references. He then countered the offer with something quite close to the offer given to me. I rejected it after taking a week to consider with the hope that my references will have been back due to the living condition of the environment.
Now the other company came back to me after about a week and three days saying they have not even started the background checks yet asking me to shift my resumption by one week to enable them finish the screening. I have resigned already and I have two days to go.
What are my options? Do I even have any left?
