I graduated college in September of 2017. Upon graduation a was able to land a job with a company I had interned with for a year and three months. I have been employed full-time with this company for 7 months now. During my time here I was able to network with some of our vendors, one of which offered me a full-time position. They gave me until the end of the year to circle back with them. After comparing my current role and the offered position, I believe the new role is more in line with my future goals.
A part of me feels guilty leaving my current team because they went through a lot to bring me on board. Additionally, we are short handed with people going out on maternity and paternity leave so it doesn't feel like the right time, but I'm not sure if an opportunity like this will come along any time soon. I also don't want to burn any bridges because I truly do like my current team.
Is it too soon to be making career changes?
How should I approach my current employer with this?
