Hi Jane,

I'm on digest and may be a bit late with this one, but I wanted to share my experience. A few years ago, the exact same situation happened - I was offered a job at another company. I initially accepted the position but within a day or so, turned it down to remain where I was.

A couple of months later, I decided definitively to move on. The recruiter mentioned that the position at the other company was still open, and was I interested? I met with the company again, explained that my current company had made promises in order to keep me but then reneged.

The end result? I have been working for the other company for almost three years. Actually, they treat me fairly well and have allowed me to telecommute (which I think is wonderful).

Explain why you chose to stay with the current company and then what changed your mind. They should appreciate that deciding to move on is never an easy decision, and that you would employ the same caution with them.

Good luck,
