The hiring committee will compare interview notes and select the best candidate. There’s no preference unless it’s a unique role that needs to be filled urgently with little to no ramp up time.

Yeah it’s definitely not a unique role. It’s a non tech role that wouldn’t even be in this pool if it wasn’t for an org change. I must have a decent packet if the recruiter is lining me up for another team (very similar role) if I don’t get this one I guess?

Id like to think we’re pretty good at being unbiased towards this. I personally know people who internally tried to switch but got denied for external hires.

like

Well if the external candidate is a really quality candidate and you’re filling a role that they are a very strong fit for, you may be missing out on the opportunity to bring a strong IC into you organization. So I think the bias can work against you too.
