I have just been accepted in a new company however, I have a pre-planned trip 1 week after my official start date. This has been planned months earlier and everything has been booked.
How do I tell them (new company) that I need to go on this trip without giving a bad impression? I am thinking of 2 options:
Tell them about the trip and that I can start with my new position after this trip (means, I am able to start only 2 weeks after the start date that they've set).
Tell them about the trip and that I can start on the start date but I would need to go on a trip 1 week after. I'm willing to be unpaid during that 1 week duration since I just started.
Do you think these two options are fair enough? And generally, will it give them a bad impression?
