Don’t reschedule the interview

No. I'd block that time off by sending my work email a meeting invite from my personal email and mark it as a personal event. The partner can wait a few hours.

I’ve done it both ways. Immediately regretted rescheduling the interview. Telling partner I had an appointment and suggesting a time right after, not an ounce of regret.

Agree with everyone else. If you’re serious about lateraling you almost have to look at the process at your #1 job, and everything at your current job becomes #2. Do all you can to make sure #1 goes smoothly and you make the most informed decision you can. Good luck!

I think the logic is, if you’re already interviewing, you’ve made up your mind that there are greener pastures. So I wouldn’t do any favors to a place/people that would hold you back from attaining what you believe to be better.

Do not reschedule the interview

like

Partner can wait.

I have rescheduled a screening interview before and it wasn’t a problem at all. But I rescheduled because of a client meeting, not an internal meeting. I think that firms are understanding of the fact that you have a duty to your existing clients

Was it blocked off? If so keep it

There's a major QSR i recently got an offer for, and someone who interviewed me said I can ask him any questions I had. I noticed he came from consulting and so I'm curious to ask him which industry is better and what the similarities are between this role and consulting. Should I ask him that or is this HR bait?

How do you get over the anxiety of potentially picking the wrong next job? I’ve always felt like I made the wrong career decisions in adulthood (e.g., not taking up computer science in undergrad, the consulting offer I picked after undergrad was in a low growth area, the second job I picked ended up having a terrible manager). As I get closer to finishing interviews and getting offers, I dread trying to figure out where to go because I’m sure I’m going to pick the wrong thing.
