Accepted a job offer but..

I kind of regret it now. I went through recruiting season and came out with three job offers, none of which were ideal. Due to deadlines imposed, I made a decision and rejected the other two.

I immediately felt some buyer's remorse but figured it would go away shortly. However, almost three months later I still regret my decision a little bit. It's obviously better than having no job, but part of me wishes I could still go through recruitment without guilt hanging over me.

Is it natural to feel a sense of regret for months after you made the decision? I don't start until after graduation, so I still have ~6 months before I have to begin working.

What would you all do if you were me? Continue recruiting or say screw it?

Life isn't always ideal. Making the best with what we have is what defines us.

If you don't really feel 100% about it, but it is the best opportunity you have, go in there and give 110% every day, build up positive reviews and recommendations and keep building yourself from there, in your skillset and on paper.

I would try it out first if you still hate it try and move on.
