and in an recession, one can get retrenched from current job. everything has a risk.

if your new company take back the offer, then just take back your letter of resignation from your current company

Hi guys, I received a call from SB after an interview a month ago. HR ask if I'm still keen in the position and for a expected salary range. Told the HR, they said they will work it out, possibly with a salary higher than what I'm expecting and provide me with a final package by the end of next week. Also asked if it was a verbal offer and they said it was.

Should I bank in on this offer? Is is still possible for them to rescind their offer since I had to decline another offer for this (which I already did because the other offer's starting date is in a few days and I really want this position offered by SB)

Desperate times call for desperate measures. If I were you, I would start in the other company and wait for the SB. During probation (in the first company), notice period should be 1 week? That gives you time to quit, explain nicely to your manager, and join your ideal job in that SB.

Default Shortlisted

Hi

I just saw my status changed to "shortlisted" 3 days ago. Anyone knows roughly how long do they take to call or email you for interview?

Thank you..

Cool, you got offered without doing a medical/security clearance?

Mine's still pending those clearances for about 4 weeks already. Same as you, I took the risk and turned down another offer and am banking on the SB to come through.

I'm in similiar situation.
A private mnc offer me already. I'm OK to work with them but govtech role is really something I wanted to explore.

I know the process cannot be shorten.
Need to do security check, package nego, approval.

I actually don't want to take risk resign without job.

I'm thinking to take the offer. Join next month while waiting the clearance and approval. Which I think need at least 1 to 2 months?
Is this doable?

It doesn't hurt to do so, and i am sure its a few hundreds of applicants they are looking at, you can grab their attention with an email. Do note that they may or may not reply though. Good luck!!!
