So I had two interviews today in the industry that I’ve been trying to work for since before I graduated college in 2020. I came onto my current firm as a contractor and then converted. I know it’s to early since I don’t even have an offer but I’d like your thoughts. 1st interview was with a staffing company offering a contract to hire position within a department where I want to work at Wells Fargo. The title is what I want but the responsibilities do not relate to what I want.

Personally I’d never entertain a contract to hire opportunity. If they want me as an FTE, hire me as an FTE.

I’d pass on this. Title doesn’t mean much if you’re not doing what you want to do.

Interesting, I feel that it would be much easier to lateral with my position as I’m going to be working in the Wells Fargo commercial real estate department as a real estate analyst. And with that title, while I’m a Real estate analyst not doing any underwriting work, I can at least say I was exposed and apply to something with “1 year of real estate experience “.

The staffer said they have a 100% conversion rate but working as contractor is very stressful w/ no benefits and so when she emailed after the interview about hourly comp, I gave her an equivalent of 50% -55% more than my current salary. And it’s in the city that I’m currently in where I want to stay for quite some time.

My second interview went well and it’s for a new subsidiary of a firm that I would love to work for as it’s an industry leader, but the position is three hours away across state lines, and I would be taking potentially a 40% paycut. The opportunity would be great as the firm is newly acquired and is growing at an extremely fast rate, and so the recruiter said the pay and opportunities can definitely expand in the future but it’s not EXACTLY what I’m planning on doing. The recruiter emailed tonight to schedule an in person interview with a director and analyst next week (not sure if that’s feasible for my engagement schedule).

In addition, I’m exploring MBA programs to pivot into that industry down the road as well. So it could be good to stay where I am, since it’s the most stable at the moment and commands the most pay without risk, but I’m not happy in consulting as I’m not working on anything I’m passionate about. I’m just content, because of the salary and the lifestyle. I’d love to hear your thoughts, my parents feel it’s better for me to just stay where I’m at due to the stability, leverage my current relationships at my firm for recommendations and then study my ass off for the GMAT so I can get into the best mba program which a concentration in my industry, which coincidentally is in my state and I’d qualify for in state tuition.

Tl;dr should I leave my salaried position for a contract to hire role in the city I want to live in at a reputable firm, pursue another position that’s salary but 40% pay cut but great experience opportunities in a fast grow subsidy of a top firm, or stay in the current salaried position and study, get into MBA, then pivot?

Looking at exiting to a F500 company (Rank ~300), for a director of strategy role, with my manager reporting directly to the CSO.

The pay is identical, plus stock RSUs on top. WLB is much better (8-5 job), and work is more interesting.

They require relocation to a LCOL (less desirable) city. I'm thinking of asking to work remotely for the first 6-12 months (to accommodate wifes job), and fly in every other week (coast to coast flight).

Is that reasonable to ask? What else should I consider?
