So I am graduating in May and have accepted a job offer at a company. The contract that I signed for them said I (or the employer) can end my employment at any time, for any reason. Although since this company is not my ideal job and I have continued to apply to other places.
I recently got invited to my final rounds at another company, however they want to do a background check. They specifically said they will call past employers. The problem is the job I accepted I also interned at so they would call them.
The company I have my final rounds with would definitely be a better fit for what I am looking for. The problem is the location is not ideal. Thus, I am not even sure if I would accept the position if I got the offer. The company already booked my plane ticket as well as hotel.
My question is should I consent to the background check and risk the company I already accepted at finding out and revoking my offer. If I choose not to interview how bad will it look that they wasted money on getting me a plane ticket as well as hotel (not sure if they can get a refund).
Thank you for any help!
