What are the odds you can accept an offer a month after rejecting it? Think I made the wrong choice

I've done it. Just be completely honest. Everyone makes mistakes. They were very understanding and I'm so glad I went back and asked for another chance.


What's the worse they can say, no?


There is no offer if you rejected it. Companies don't present standing offers. And why would a firm want you if you originally declined. If you owned a company, what would you think of someone like you who doesn't know what they want? If anything, they'll be glad they dodged a bullet with you.


Update: they're extending another offer 💃🏼


It's your life, don't let societal "norms" or feeling bad about going back on a commitment prevent you from making the best decision for you.

A month though...that job might be gone

Zero. At the associate level nobody is going to put up with this one month lag. That position is already gone.


If the job were still available that would be one thing, but as everyone said, it's unlikely to have stayed unfilled unless they were looking for a very specific skill set.

Whoops I read the post opposite. Nvm

They are looking for a specific skill set. Thanks for the honest opinions though

What kind of company OP?

I joined JPMC today as an Associate in Plano, TX. I got another offer at Morgan Stanley (Associate too) in NYC. I like the team at MS better and I have always wanted to work in NYC and would have started looking for opportunities 6-12 months down the line.
I'm on my F1 visa (OPT) and it's my first job ever (also first job in the US). MS is aware of my situation and is fine if I work for a month at JPMC and switch over. But I don't want it to have a negative impact on my career and my future!

Should you always negotiate up an offer? Even if you’re happy with the number? I think whatever salary I get next will be better than what I have now, but I don’t want to leave money on the table by not negotiating at all.

How does your firm keep track of billable hours? Are you measured by month or year or both?

Is it normal to have a yearly requirement but get emails/phone calls any month you come in “short” (below the estimated monthly requirement to meet your yearly goal) regardless of whether you’re on track to meet or exceed your yearly requirement?

The hardest part about this job for me is that I can give it my absolute all but it’s still never enough

It’s terrifying to be so unsure of your capabilities and I fear for myself and this undertaking.
