How to tell employer i no longer want the job offer?
I was offered a job today and they want me to start this Monday.. later in the day i received an update from another job i want more, the email said they want me to start training (nothing was said like "congrats, you got the job"), all it said was to start training on my own time, and it also said "we look forward to having you on our team". this was after i successfully completed 2 exercises for them. I want to pursue this second job even though the first one already made me an offer (i havent signed anything saying i agree to being hired, just an application and background check was done/signed).
How do i tell the first job i am no longer interested?
and do you think i have a good shot at the second?(they did say they look forward to me joining them, but they still want to do a Skype interview/chat)
is there anyway i can leave the first on a good term in order to maybe apply with them if i dont get the second? kinda to keep it as a backup?
