I just hopped from one big4 firm to another about 3 months ago. Facebook called me a few days ago wanting to interview me for a Project Manager role I applied to a while ago. Is it too early to go?

Ya whatever company you work for now will be upset if you leave so soon but at the same time they wouldn't think twice about letting you go if your role was no longer needed so you don't own them anything. Life is short follow your dreams

Definitely at least take the interview. If after that you realize it’s a role you want go for it and don’t worry about how you made several moves in a short span of time. That should be easy to explain to anyone.

No harm in doing the interview. And if they make you an offer and it’s dream job status, take it! 3-4 months won’t be much of a red flag if you stay for 2+ years

Reach for the stars Franky!

What would you say if a colleague said the same? It's all based on your values. I say go for it.

OP - how did you find the role?

Flew for the first time today. Woman next to me took her mask off immediately upon sitting down and starting chatting loudly with her son.
