I accepted a verbal offer on Fri. & written offer today, waiting on background check before giving notice. This afternoon my first choice reached out for a 2nd interview (after saying they’d be in touch either way by last Tues. and then hearing nothing). Would it be stupid and/or shady of me to take the interview? I’m excited about the one I accepted so wouldn’t want to withdraw without another offer, but this one would be a title promotion vs. lateral, & a $30K+ raise over the one I accepted.

What made the company your first choice? I would do the interview and mention that you have another offer on the table to create some urgency on their end if they like you. I would however proceed with some caution given they didn’t reach out when they said they would. I’d even go as far as digging a little deeper to see if there’s anything organizationally you should be concerned of. A title and a pay raise isn’t everything.

Thank you so much! I think I just needed to stop being enticed by that raise (which isn’t nothing - we’re talking a 10% vs. 50% increase). I really am exciting about the one I’m taking, though!!

How technical does one have for an data Director position?

Very confusing conversations with a number of Large companies on director of data positions. Interviewing they seem to want folks who managed team sizes of 40+ people AND be hands on.

Am I wrong to think this is an oxymoron? Surely how can one delegate to their large team and be hands on? Past few years of consulting I’ve strongly focused on managing large teams and we definitely were discouraged from being hands on tbh
