I reconnected with a company I previously interviewed with simply to network because my current role isnt working out.

The person I was speaking to (whom I trust) basically suggested I move into industry and find a product owner role, which I agreed with.

He then offered a couple suggestions of very reputable financial services orgs that he has connections with and could introduce me.

I'm super grateful and think it would be an incredible opportunity , but I'm hesitating and idk why...

Has anyone gone through something like this? I mentioned taking a look at the website and he basically said these roles they don't post about.

Never been in this position before. I responded with thank you/gratitude, and willingness to continue the discussion and see where it goes.

Any other tips?

Sounds like you should definitely seize these opportunities!
