I have applied to many internships in advertising specifically. One of my last choices post-interview got back to me before the others and I need to turn in a decision. Is it acceptable to accept a job offer but if one that is better comes around to revoke it (within a reasonable time)? My other options won’t be giving me an answer for another week.

First off, congrats on getting an offer! I know it might feel stressful but it’s important to remember that this is an accomplishment! Secondly, we work in an at-will country. You can accept and renege at any point, for any reason. However, be prepared to burn that bridge for a period of time - are you ok with that? I would say reneging after a week is far less egregious than reneging a week before the start date.

This, I’ve been in situations where I’ve been mentally prepared to renege because of timing, it’s part of job hunting, in my case, both the offers I thought I wanted came in too low! So I went with the original offer, just say yes, you can always say no later!

Are you on a time limit? I’ve heard of plenty of people just saying they’re still interviewing/applying and need time to make a decision

Is there a good way to avoid signing up for new major responsibilities at current role if you’re actively job searching / interviewing? I feel like I’m close to an offer (in the next week) but my manager just added me as a sole resource to a new project. I feel like they’re counting on me and I would be screwing them over. Trying to balance being engaged at work while actively job searching. I like my team and don’t want to burn any bridges!

We are currently building the plan for the hybrid model we will follow mid October. (No specific date yet.) We have committed to an A/B model with groups attending MT and Th/F in person, working remotely the other three days. If you have an AB model do you deliver the same content to your students each day, regardless of them being remote or in person? Or is the lesson cycle one that begins on the first day you teach in person for each group? This second model seems complicated.
