Currently in T1 city with T2 firm and got recruited to MBB for a role in an emerging market. I am not interested to do the country switch now, and want to avoid going through this rigorous interview process as it doesn’t align with my current career aspiration. How to turn them down nicely, to still keep the door opens for future opportunity in different market or perhaps different timing of my life?

Ethical question: would you try to negotiate a raise in current job if you know you’re actively looking elsewhere? Context: had an incredibly challenging year with a huge project that completed successfully. Extremely complex tasks and long hours. Got an award for “disruption” but in summary, the role evolved and now I want to ask for market adjustment /as well as merit raise. I also hate what I do at the moment and can’t wait to leave, but might take months. Should I still ask for a raise?
