No harm in going through the interview process and making an informed decision about whether to leave or stay. You don’t quite have a choice to make until you have an offer in hand...

Also — if I end up not getting an offer or getting an offer and turning it down, does that reflect poorly on my friend? I don’t want to have any sort of poor impact on their reputation.

It's not greener on the other side, it's probably all the same. However, if you want to see a different firm and have an opportunity lined up, I would continue seeking out what they're willing to offer and potentially take it. Doesn't hurt.

No harm in interviewing, maybe the salary and compensation will be better to the point that you’ll be alright with leaving.

my current firm.

For context, I only started back in June and I have absolutely LOVED every single day... until I switched teams back in December. Part of me says stick it out, something good will come along, but the other part of me wonders if it’s greener on the other side?

I’m contracting with a company in an admin role, but sometimes I’m asked to do projects that would normally be outsourced to a marketing or design company like designing a flyer for example. It’s not in my job description, but I have the skills to do this work and so why not ask me to do it? Is it out of the question to ask if I can be paid for that work under a separate fee as a consultant or something? Is that even possible?

If you interview multiple times with the same firm (e.g. Microsoft) but don't get offers, does it count against you?
