Had a recruiter reach out from an agency I’d love to work at but I’m not looking to move right now. What’s the status quo here? Do I tell them I’m not looking to move but would love to chat or do I take the first call without saying anything then pull out of interviews after that? New to the industry so unsure what to do!

Go for the job. Interview with as many people there you can. THEN decide if it's woth moving for. Otherwise you may always wonder if you shoulda taken it.


Would you nice if there’s enough 0’s in the offer? I think it’s worth having a call even if just to network. Describe your dream role. Maybe it’s not what they have open now, but if it does open up, they can come poach you for the big bucks. I’ll have an initial call with just about anyone, but it will take a lot for me to actually jump ship.


Should say “would you move” - stupid siri

Take the call. Telling them you’re happy and want them to check in later will only make them want you more.


Go for it, it’s good to see what’s out there and network and meet new people. You have nothing to lose from trying.


Take the call to make the connection. Find out what the role is so you can level set if needed. Be honest and say that you'd love to work there and why as they'll appreciate that and ask for your resume to be kept on hold for future reference. They will likely remember you and reach out at some point or you will then have an inside contact/relationship for when you are ready.


You always take the call.
