@GS2, move if you get an offer for the exact job you want and it's an obvious upgrade. Otherwise, it's going to hurt your chances of getting future jobs if you look flakey and move too often.

But if you do the 18 months in operations doesn't it hurt your chances of getting a sales job?

True. Thanks 😀

EDIT: Relocation for the position will be required once offices open up this summer (as tentatively planned).
