Today, I turned down an opportunity to interview with a very big name tech company - did I make a mistake?
I told two people that I did this: A friend and former colleague who I trust very much, and my partner. I turned down the interview because I'm not sure I even *want* to do the job they called about, and I am stressed at work, and I feared I would come off badly in the interview. I may want to apply for other roles at this company down the line. I also would have needed to do quite a bit of prep work, which I don't have time to do. Finally, I want to stay with my current role for at least the next six months. When I told my partner, they said, "good call." When I told my friend, they said "Ugh. Always be interviewing. You never know." It made me question my decision. So tell me, FGB, should I have interviewed anyway?
