So I currently work full-time in a small office with a group of co-workers they have become friends. While I usually enjoy my job, I’ve spent the last 4-5 months looking for new opportunities since I’ve felt my position stagnating a little.
I recently went to an interview with a huge company. The position ended up not being exactly what I thought/hoped it would be (more of one sector, like marketing, less of another, like software development), though I would still probably be good at it. The work environment isn’t what I was hoping for either: working in an extremely close-knit team of three other members, all 25+ years older than me (my current co-workers are all my age and we have fun together). On top of that, they want a minimum 2 year commitment out of me and my husband and I plan to try to concieve this year.
Anyway, the bottom line is that I’m really not very interested in the position – I don’t think I would be happier there than I am in my current role. It turns out that they liked me though – they’ve requested that I come back for another interview (third round). My inclination is to politely decline, since I can’t think of anything they could say to me that would change my mind. I’d also have to take another half day off of my current position to attend, which would be an inconvenience to my co-workers (one that I’d rather reserve for a job I have more interest in).
My husband thinks I should go, just to hear what they have to say. I don’t want to “burn any bridges” by not attending, but I also don’t want to waste any time going to an interview for a position I’m honestly no longer considering.
So what should I do?
