Accepting Rejected Job Offer - Interior / Architecture

Post by Roundglass » Fri, 11 Oct 2019 2:52 pm

Hi everyone,

Currently, I'm facing a dilemma and needed some opinions from other people.

I'm an interior design fresh graduate in Singapore (foreign student).
I went to apply to a lot of companies in Singapore, and luckily I got job offers on 1 architect firm (Company A) and 1 interior design firm (Company B)

After a long and tough time deciding on which company I wanted to accept, I finally accepting Company B, and rejected Company A.

Before I accept Company B, they already promised that they would give me an S Pass after 1 month of probation time (working remotely from my country, not in SG). And I did pass the 1 month probation time, and so they proceed my S Pass.

But after my S Pass already approved from MOM (not issued yet), suddenly Company B canceled my contract, with the reason that my performance is not good, and that I don't have suitable experience for their company (although they know that I'm a fresh graduate, and I didn't have anyone to ask since I work remotely from my country). At that time I already preparing for my accommodation and S-Pass medical check-up in SG, but all of them gone to waste.

Now, I was thinking if it is ethical and appropriate for me to go back to Company A (Architect firm) to accept their job offer?

Sorry that this post is lengthy, but your opinions would be so much important for me! :)

I do feel it is acceptable for you to approach Company A, since Company B has decided not to continue with your contract. You did not expect such outcome from Company B anyway. Good luck.
