Thanks!

Another role at the same company?

funny

Yes 😜 pays more apparently haha and is closer to my skillset

Try not to. You will appear not serious for the company, and they may not consider you… the only way to say is if the other role is much closer to your skill level than the one you are interviewing for.

If you asked me a couple weeks ago, I would have cautioned against it. But I actually got to the second round, when the hiring manager's supervisor felt I would be a better fit for another role on the team, final interview was for the other role, and got offered that role just yesterday. Still have yet to actually apply for it though. But, if you truly do feel it's a better fit, ask the recruiter.
