Not if you just started and are happy, if less than a year in and no negative feelings, it's nice and productive to focus on current position and growth and enjoy a bit of stress free from constant job search and distraction of "grass greener on the other side" situations. If truly intriguing and you are open to leaving current place, sure.

You may not plan on moving. But who knows, maybe after talking to them you'll realize it's a great fit, and that's where you'll be happiest. It never hurts to see what's out there.

Always take the interview. Networking, learning about the competition, determining what you want or dont is vital to keeping your expertise fresh.

Hi Fishes, I am in a strange situation and seeking some sort of advice. I had given a interview at Infosys last month...but after 2nd round I was sure that I will not make it hence on Infosys portal I withdraw my job application. But 3 days back I had an HR round and he said that he will look for approval from hiring team regarding my Expected CTC. So just I was wondering that as I had withdrawn the application, so whether Infosys will offer job.Tata Consultancy Infosys
