Tough one.  I think you need to be honest with your new boss, and say that the location, money, and management track aligns much more closely with your desired career goals.  It’s going to be sticky though, because you’re putting him in a lurch to have to start the job search all over…

I wouldn’t mention it until you know for sure about the other job. You never know, the other job may not work out and then you may have to deal with upset people at your current office. He may even let you go for not being able to committ and if the other job falls through then you’re back at square one. I’ve been put in similar situations, in the end don’t feel bad about quitting or about not telling them until last minute. You have to do what is best for you and your career. I know it’s tough but it’s all business. Plus, they don’t give people notice when they fire them!

I wouldn’t bring it up until you know for sure about the other position. My Future Father-In-Law has dealt with a lot of situations like this and honestly, you have to go with your gut and with the direction you feel the best about.

I’m in a similar situation, I’ve accepted an offer but I’m still interviewing for my dream job. Don’t say anything to your boss until you get the other job offer. Backing out of a job offer is considered unethical, but most people, including bosses, understand that you have to do the best thing for yourself.
