Has anyone ever accepted an offer and then later rescinded that acceptance? 😬 I’m considering doing this even though I told my self I wouldn’t. I have an opportunity for a FAANG exit that is just too juicy.

Just do it. Professionally. And never look back. All the best.

Thank you! I’m so nervous.

Don't throw away an offer for an opportunity with FAANG. most people that get an interview fail out miserably. Take the other job and keep interviewing with FAANG and then bail out if you get the offer

Do you only interview for technical roles, or non-technical roles as well? And if you do interview for non-technical, what is the reason most people fail?

Choose one acceptance letter over another. NEVER turn down an offer for an interview. Accept the one offer and rescind if you have to.

Also, if they only gave you 24 hours they cant be surprised if you decide to rescind. If you do end up going that route, I would let them know that due to the tight timeline you were provided and the pressure, you made your decision, but would have otherwise evaluated the two offers before accepting.

Yep you will be fine.

FYI -I am not and will not ever consider rescinding an accepted offer for an INTERVIEW. It blows my mind that there are even people who would do that. I’m asking about rescinding an offer for another offer.

You would be shocked what I see in here.

Have done it many times. Look out for you; don’t worry about the firms.

You brave brave soul. lol How did the recruiters/companies respond?
