Question for you all: Left D to Company A for a 50% raise in TC and slated to start in <1 week. However, just got an offer at Company B for a 100% raise in TC compared to D, or 30% raise in TC compared to company A. Both firms do similar work but B provides a more solid comp package. Job duties would be relatively similar. Is the % jump worth burning the bridge? Would have chosen Company B if the offer came sooner but the % difference in A to B is at my [personal] 30% threshold. TIA!

Just got rejected for an opportunity that I spent >4 weeks preparing for, just before reaching the final round. I’ve spoken to so many people about the company and learnt so much about it. I was really looking forward to this role. I was actually very excited. I believed I was good fit too. But I guess it’s only bad luck and 0 skill that backs me. It’s heartbreaking and demotivating. How do I get through the weekend without breaking down??
