Have you asked from an extension from your current offer? I’d just straight up say you’re in the process of interviewing with other firms and want to carefully evaluate your next opportunity

In a similar situation except I got an invitation to interview for a great firm after accepting another offer. I start in ~2 weeks but really want to see how this other role plays out..

What’s the consequence if you accept this offer, and then flake if KPMG comes through

Worst case, you get blackballed from the original company. They’re not going to hire ninja assassins to chase you down or a PR firm to stalk and smear you.

Yes-ish. I’ve rescinded my acceptance with Company A to take an offer with company B, after initially taking Company A’s offer. That said, I had not started with Company A by this point.

Exactly
