Thank them for the opportunity, but tell them you respectfully decline because X. Not much different than if you had to decline an actual offer.

Hello Infoscians/Ex-Infoscians! I will be joining Infosys this Thursday as a 7+ YOE Tech Lead. I am an avid trekker and every year I go on a trek at least once which requires me to take a 5-7 working days off. Its actually my passion. Just wanted to know how difficult it is to get leaves approved and officially before how many days do i need to inform my manager? Is there any SOP for applying leaves at Infy? Thank you in advance!

My company misplaced my official approval notice since I transferred right around the beginning of the pandemic and we went into a lockdown. Lawyers and HR are saying that a copy will suffice and I don’t need my official notice. I’m still worried. Has anyone been requested to provide an official copy during the interview? To clarify I am trying to travel abroad for visa stamping and then come back.

Part 1: I accepted a full-time advisory role at a nonB4 last semester. Updated LinkedIn and all. EY posted a very similar opportunity and it fits my experience. I searched EY’s job board for this chance while interviewing- nothing. If I had received both offers at the same time I would’ve chosen EY. I expect the pay diff to be marginal (6-7%), but I have loans so it would help. What’s most important to me is access to tech/resources, networks, mobility, quality of projects, fit, and exit opps.
