OK so I have been offered a full time job today and I have verbally accepted the offer and they have emailed me a copy of the contract, etc but still pending referees check, which shouldnt be a problem at all. The problem is next Monday morning I will be attending another potential job's second interview (my favourite and im eyeing for it) and they already told me to bring fill in a Police Check form and sign up for working with children's check. Although i am not quite close on the job offer stage on that 'favourite' job, but i feel that im getting closer of getting it. I dont know, just because they already ask you to fill and bring police check & wccc forms, would that mean they are seriously considering to offer me the role?
And if that actually happens, i would probably take up the job offer from the 'favourite' one (flexibility, company and job wise it's what im after). However although i know I need to decline the other one, but I have not experienced of having two job offers before (sorry, didnt mean to be so over confident!), but if that two job offers really come thru, how do i break the news to the one im declining. I dont want them to say harsh things to me!
I had a past experience when I left a telecommute job after one week being in the job the boss went sarcastic as I spoke and he said i had wasted everybody's time. That's still ringing in my head 😢. How can I say i want to decline without showing that Im the slack one?
