Take the better offer. Is this a trick question?

You’ve never been in the position but the company certainly has. They understand the competitiveness of the market

$50k is only big money if it’s a good fit. It’s not worth it if it’s a bad culture fit for you. Which company/ team did you like better? If the company you’ve accepted with, use new offer for further negotiations.

I was in the same position and took better offer. Call to “quit before starting” was definitely awkward lol.

Yeah, I can only imagine. How did the other company take it? What level/role was this and what was the salary difference? Just curious.

I live in Sydney, Australia and am looking to move over to NYC in the coming months and get a job as a Strategist (I have ~4 years experience, my Fishbowl profile is out of date). At the moment, are people are getting hired remotely/over Zoom calls etc? And to be clear, I don't mean working remotely, just the hiring process. Normally I'm told its pretty much impossible to get hired if not in NY (And still in Aus.), but I'm thinking now could be my chance. I would need to be sponsored though.
