No! Do you have an offer?

No, but a colleague alerted me to the opening because someone asked him for a reference and encouraged me to apply. I wasn't sure if I should hold off or not.

Nope just don’t expect recommendations from that firm. Do what makes you happy. Your career at the end of the day.

No but you need a good story about why you are moving (which shouldn’t be hard). Also, you will need to stay at the next place for a good amount of time to show you aren’t a flight risk
