Have a job offer that I don't want to accept for now but can see myself in that team a year or so later. What is the best way to not accept this offer & keep them warm for an easy entry later?

This sounds oddly sexual. 🤔

Um, don't interview if you are not ready to move should you actually like the place and people enough to accept a decent offer?

Why is it not the right time now?

To clarify, this place took slightly longer to get back with a decision and in the interim, another option landed that is more aligned with short term goals.

Are you PwC? Was this offer from a PE firm.

P4 - yes, a part of the PwC network :) Not PE. Not switching often either. But want to keep the other option option for later as it offers much better work-life balance and internal mobility. Short term - I can stretch myself for another year and continue the steep learning curve.

Ok just send a nice note to the people you want to connect with, stating that you are focusing on S& now. But would really like to keep in touch.
