Yes, absolutely. I even continued to interview at other companies even after I accepted the offer and locked in my start date. I was so worried. Be confident, they offered you a role because you are clearly great at what you do.

In the recruiter interview I wasn’t asked where I live. The job is with a huge sports wear company in Los Ángeles and I live in Miami. Does not living in the same city not make the hiring manger want to hire you even though I would move to the jobs location ASAP? And if they ask where I live do I say I live in their city? Even though I don’t and it’s a contract position.
