I've been working at my current position for 2 years now. New boss does not see my value, so I plan to move to another position. I got an internal offer for lateral move and accepted it.
Few days later, there is new higher level position posted. I'm really interested and I think I have a chance at getting the position. Different HR recruiter sent email to me asking whether I just accepted an offer which is the lateral move position.
I don't know whether it will push me to the bad position. I don't know whether there is politics in that. Hope anyone can share some experience.
Thank you so much for all the answers.
I contacted 2nd job HR and she replied me that she is not going to push me forward because I accepted the 1st job. That really upset me. I'm qualified for this position. Just because of the timing, I have to take the lateral move instead of taking the promoted one. Is it against some labor law? I just felt it's not fair.
