Please help! Can I withdraw a job offer (already secured) for another offer?
This may seem crazy or even dishonest, but a few weeks ago received an offer from a firm known for its shareholder advisory services. Though I wasn't interested in shareholder advisory, I needed to secure my offer (exploding offer) because I am an international MBA student. My dream was to secure a job in corporate strategy, but last week I was suddenly given the opportunity to interview with one of the best firms on the street for their corporate strategy role and received an offer today. I know I shouldn't have done this but I really wasn't expecting this result and only interviewed for practice purposes. Is there any way I can withdraw the job offer from the first firm, and accept this offer for the corporate strategy role? I would really appreciate any honest advice.
