Interviewing with Google because they sought me out. I actually think I did well in the interviews, but the timing is off. If they offer me a role, and I turn it down... am I screwing myself over for

Why is the timing off? I’m sure if you have a valid reason they will understand and if they like you as a candidate they will give you a shot. But remember it might be a bad time for them when you’re ready

Nah Google will keep you on a shortlist for future opps if they extend you an offer and you decline

Well, I’m not really ready to move right now, and it would require a big move. I mainly want to keep them on my radar for other jobs that come up. This particular job isn’t one I really want, but when Google comes knocking, you don’t turn them down ;)

Thanks, A1 :)

OP what role are you interviewing for?
