Are you applying to Google? If so, let the recruiter know you're not ready, and request to stay in touch. I delayed my interview for a year, and the recruiter stayed in touch. When a role opened for my profile, I was ready. It is better to say no instead of being rejected. Then again, are you really not prepared, or just nervous? Take time to sort through your feelings and then decide.

I just found out I am being paid less than both of the people I manage ($6k and $10k less). The issue though is they both have a different job than me - they are project managers and I am in more of an overarching strategy role. But I do manage and represent my entire dept. I haven’t been at my company for a full year yet so negotiating my salary is hard (especially because we are very large and matrixed). How would you approach this? Is this normal? I’m just feeling very frustrated.
