What are your experiences on accepting an offer for a sales position, and before the start date of that role one is given a better offer elsewhere, to which one accepts and begin at that job? Curious, and wondering if today’s hiring market factors into the answer?

Very simple…thank you so much for the offer. You have a great company and I was really impressed with x,y,z. After further thought I have decided to decline your offer. I apologize for any inconvenience but I have determined that what’s best for me and my career path is a different direction. I wish you all the best and thank you for providing me the opportunity to work with you.

It happens. I've had the same thing happen to me, both as the hired person and as a hiring manager.

The company who loses out will not be happy but please do contact them and inform them in advance. Don't just be a no-show on your first day.

In this boat. I accepted a new role. Currently working out my notice period. Recruiter caught my attention with a sweet gig at a hypergrowth SaaS company... Now trying to figure out how to best let down the first offer.

Let me know if you manage to find the words!

It's more than a week now and I haven't heard back. Can anyone shed light on the process -- what to expect, timelines, what is the interview process like, etc.

Thanks!
