Would like to hear your insight on my situation..
I recently went for an interview recruiter had set up for me and received an offer and accepted.
Only reason I went for the interview was because recruiter convinced me this organization is growing and there is potential to transition into role I wanted.
My recruiter is very aware I wasn't interested in moving to another company for the same role.
1) I had interview for the same position I am currently in.
2) Strongly revealed my interest in eventually transitioning into another role to HR manager.
3) Received offer via recruiter and he had mentioned HR manager understands my career goals and has "plans" to transition me to new role after 3-6 months.
I had chance to talk to HR manager again to thank her for the offer and to discuss start date. I mentioned about the "plans" just to make sure we are on the same page. HR manager said she can't promise me anything nor she made any promises to my recruiter.
At this point I'm out of options as I have already accepted the offer. Unfortunately, I'm not 100% certain I have made right decision.
Is it possible to turn down offer at this point?
I don't use the word "promise", ever in my discussions. I say "possibilities", or contingent on factors (budget, business strategy), or "when the stars align". HR Manager is not in a position to promise anything, let alone make something happen, nor should they agree to things they cannot guarantee. I point to facts and possibilities so people see the situation logically and objectively.
