I believe there’s a box they can check to state that they are an alumn and then the school could reference their records to verify it.

I accepted an offer as a recruiting manager a month ago and I’m supposed to start training on Monday. However I finally received an offer from a start up tech company and the salary is double my offer. Plus the work culture is awesome. I’m an idiot if I say no.

I know I’m supposed to do what’s best for me, but I really like the first company and kinda feel bad for messing them up and leaving them without a manager.
