Six weeks ago, I applied for jobs at Companies A and B. Both pay about the same salary.
Company A moved faster in the hiring process, and I accepted their offer. But there’s trouble with the security check. This is because I worked at a startup that didn’t make any money, and I don’t have tax forms. So it’s not really a done deal.
Company B has dragged its feet, but they’re on the verge of making me an offer. I’d rather work at Company B, but I did accept the offer at Company A.
What should I do? I accepted A’s offer, but since they don’t feel obligated to hire me, I don’t feel obligated to work there. At the same time, Company B hasn’t made me an offer yet, though I expect one soon.
