I was contacted by a company for a position that doesn't interest me right now but will probably interest me in 6 months or so. Should I tell them? If yes, how should I explain it?
I started working at my current job a few months ago. It's my first job after a long period of not feeling well. Technically, it's a bit under my qualifications and the domain doesn't interest me much, but it's a no pressure job that pays a living wage, at walking distance from my place and I get along well with my co-workers. I've been feeling better ever since I started working there and wish to stay there for at least another 6 month, for mental health reasons.
A recruiter from a company contacted me with a job offer (better paid, more challenging and in a more interesting domain), which I plan on refusing.
Could it be useful at all to tell the recruiter that I will be interested in the same kind of offer in half a year? How do I phrase that without giving away my reasons?
