If your dream company has a role that you don’t like but familiar, would you rake it?

If it’s a Google, Amazon, Facebook where it’s a high probability that you will be able to move departments periodically then yes. Smaller company? Would need to do my diligence to make sure an internal transfer is feasible.

Depends. If the role will help you develop the skills necessary for your preferred job, then sure. Also try to see if people move around in that company. LinkedIn and asking during the interview will shed some light on this. The last thing you want is to join a company in the wrong role, then spend a few years there trying to transfer out, only to realize the transfer isn't going to happen. Now you're pigeonholed in whatever role you took and the only way out is to leave the company. For example, joining your dream company as an IT auditor with the hopes of transferring to finance is probably not justified. You'd be better off joining finance elsewhere and then joining your dream company's finance group in the future. You'll need to gauge how great the company is to you and the likelihood of an internal transfer.

Would love some advice—I’ve spent the last 2 yrs in sr level role doing policy work I enjoy. early on I discovered I was srsly underpaid & had to fight to fix it. Then leadership changed & things were good, until recently they dangled a promotion only to tell me it wouldn’t come with a raise for at least 6 mons. Then a diff agency asked me to apply for a role that pays a lot more but the work sounds so boring. Do I follow the money or do I keep doing work I like while feeling undervalued?

Big decision. Took a job at a small org/higher level with shot to GC to develop my strategic/team building skills. Turns out that’s not the role.

EY High Deductible Health Plan vs Open Access Select (don’t have EY bowl access yet) I just started at the firm and am trying to pick my healthcare.
