hmm...e sign is pretty much just a preliminary signing for the actual contract so i'd say the door is still open for you to exit! Just plan well how to broach this topic with HR, be honest and polite. Hi HR, my apologies but I would like to inform you of my decision to withdraw from this position after all, due to personal reasons. Something along these lines. Make sure you really apologize as sincerely as you can as it's quite rude la honestly to back out now but it's still early so it's fine. Anyway to ans your question, the blacklist is usually internal, so it will just be this SB if you do get blacklisted by HR. Of course there may not be a formal blacklist but HR will probably mark you next time if you apply again lol

I've always found transparent communication to work the best. May be better to give HR a call to share verbally first, before following up with a formal email.

Share your considerations and rationale for opting for the other job offer, and the situation you're going through which may make the other job offer a better mutual fit at this point in time. Doing the communication verbally first also helps express your sincerity and understand how the company approaches such situations.

Hi everyone, a SB emailed me an update that they would be coming up with a conditional offer almost a month ago but I have yet to hear from them till now. Does it mean they no longer want to hire me? How long do they usually take?

I have yet to email hr to check. Would like to know how long this takes usually so that I can gauge when is a reasonable time to check with hr, especially since with the virus I presume it would take longer

timeline does vary greatly e.g. between different agencies, hr practices, appointment level etc etc

but i guess to check-in with HR at the 1 month point is reasonable

What do they mean by a conditional offer though? Means you need clear security is it? Thatís why so long?
