People rarely get fired bc of one person, particularly in big companies. If someone says they got fired bc one manager is crazy they are either lying or naive.

This is how I handled My 90 days Notice period and it worked for me. Step1: created a naukari account and resume with fake name. Step2: updated naukari as last working day is in a week (every week I update my LWD) Step3: Attend interviews and gain confidence. At first I got rejected in many interviews but I started to clear one by one after preparing previous interview questions. Step4: when I gained confidence, I resigned and started looking for job with real name. And cleared.

I’m a tech recruiter for a F100…I have noticed throughout the industry people who have accepted an offer back out maybe a day or two before they are supposed to start (sometimes they don’t even show up on first day) I’m just curious, what leads someone to decide to decline or change their mind after acceptance?
