I currently accepted and signed a job offer for Company A since they did not give more time and I had no choice. The joining date would be 6 months after I signed the offer. 2 months before the joining date I got an offer from Company B which is better in all aspects and hence I accepted and signed offer letter for Company B. (It is unethical on my part, yes, but it was a dream offer)
Now, I was planning to contact Company A to apologize for the initial acceptance when Company B starts their background check. Company A is listed in my resume as I did an internship with them.
Since Company B can still reject me based on my background check( even though i have not done anything wrong), I am not sure if I should email Company A about me reneging on the offer. At the same time, I am worried that Company B may find out about my job acceptance for Company A and can reject me (I don't know if that is possible or will they contact me before rescinding my offer).
Hence, should I email Company A about my rejection or wait till Company B completes their background check? I do not want to finally lose both the offers.
- Accepted and signed Company A offer
- Accepted and signed Company B offer
- Company B starts background check where Company A is listed as places I have interned. Should I wait for B to finish check or email A saying I can't take up the offer?
