okay so this is my first post and I don't really know how this works. BUT basically, I've been offered a really good job at John Lewis starting in a couple of weeks. however, it's a 12 week contract and I'm only at uni for 4 more weeks... you're probably thinking oh why did you take it then - but I didn't realise logistic wise how hard it would be to stay here over the summer, along with the fact it will be lonely and isolating, away from family and friends I don't know what to do because I've already accepted the job and it is very good - I can do it for the first 4 weeks but then my uni accompanied contract ends. Could I just quit after 4 weeks? I don't know if I should be honest to the person who recruited me or not, because then they'll probably just say they don't want me

If you don't wan to/can't stay for the full duration, I'd just work there for the 4 weeks and then quit. I don't think they'd really care and they'd be able to get another person to fill the position pretty quickly. The best thing (morally), to do would just be to tell them now, but then you risk them denying you the position for someone that would work for the whole duration. You should probably read the contract and see what it says about quitting.

Thank you so much for the reply. I haven't actually been given a contract though, so I'm not sure how to find out about that. Not sure if they were planning on giving it to me on my start date or what... just feel like I'm in a difficult position and don't know whether to be honest.
