Another Firm Job Before Start Date?

Post by Anonymous User » Fri Sep 14, 2012 11:01 am

The v-50 firm I worked for this summer offered me a full-time position to start in October. However, I want to try working at a different firm in another market first in the time between graduation and October. Do I need to tell my v-50 firm that I will be working at another firm before I join them? I'm not sure how the v-50 firm would respond.

you don't necessarily need to tell the v-50 firm right away, but if you were to tell the v-50 firm, i don't think the v-50 firm would really mind, as long as it doesn't interfere with your start date at the v-50 firm.

keep in mind that you will eventually have to tell the v-50 firm about your previous work for conflict purposes at the v-50 firm, so it may be easier just to tell the v-50 firm now, before you start work at the v-50 firm.
