I recently got a job offer by a consultancy, but since a longer time ago, I am signed up for an introduction/workshop weekend with another company that will happen during my job. I will need to miss a day. Do I need to tell tmy company why I will be gone? I really want to go to the event, as it's good for my career, but I'm not sure how it will be seen by my new employer? Could it also be positive that they know I'm going (as I'll be gaining skills/network)? What do you think?
