Is it acceptable to continue interviewing after receiving a job offer?
I have been in job search mode for months and all of a sudden am getting some traction, but why all at once?!
I received the job offer on Wednesday just minutes after applying for another position. I accepted the offer contingent upon a background check, which I don't expect will turn up anything undesirable (at least I hope not!). Meanwhile, employer #2 sent an interview invitation. Employer #1 offers amazing benefits and higher pay, but employer #2 may be more fun and interesting. It would be nice to find out but I don't want to jeopardize the offer. On the other hand, I don't want to pass up an opportunity that may end up being my dream job, nor do I want to get stuck without a job if, for some odd reason, the background check doesn't pan out.
What would you do if you were in my shoes? Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
