I've been interning at my current workplace for a year and they offered me a full time position after I graduate, which is 6 months away. I weighed the pros and cons, and even though it's not exactly the job I want I thought that at least I will have a job secured after I graduate so I can comfortably figure out exactly where I want to go and what I want to do.
Then a few weeks after accepting I get an e-mail from Google saying they saw my profile and have a phone interview with them. I will be a comsci grad so working at Google would be a dream come true, and something I never expected. But during the interview they said they may not be able to continue because I have accepted the other position already. But the position I accepted, although it is in writing,(I always read what I sign) and it is not a promised contract, it basically stipulates either end can cancel the offer at any time.
My question is, what would you do in this situation? Have you been in a similar situation? Do you think it's wrong for me to look for another job after accepting an offer 6 months away? I never thought I was doing something wrong and thought it was common to continue looking if the job is so far in the future, especially with the job market today.Overall if I had known I wouldn't be able to apply for other jobs after accepting this job after graduation then I don't think I would have accepted the position..
