I have two options 1) appear and fail 2) ask them to delay by 1 to 1.5 months. I am worried that if I fail they might not consider me again for 6 months to maybe 1 year.

TikTok or Cepheid Biotech
Hey guys, I need to make a decision today on whether I want to start a career as a Talent Sourcer at TikTok or as a Onboarding Specialist at Cepheid, a Biotechnology company. Both in the Bay Area at $35 per hour and both are currently WFH. The TikTok position is less stable and very numbers driven, while the Onboarding position is more “secure” but less exciting.
