It's been 4 years since my first and only job interview and now it's time to move on and advance my career to the next stage. For this, I plan to interview for a big company. If that fails, I have a list of other places where I can try. To sum up, a priority list.
I'm taking my time to do my research, to prepare myself to pump my chances up and, I was wondering if part of this preparation process could be to navigate through one or more interviews at the other companies.
So, my question is: should I go directly to interview with my #1 pick or test myself beforehand with the others?
If you could help me, I'm trying to identify the pros and cons of each approach.
I don't pretend to waste anybody's time.
PS: this is my first question so, please feel free to ask for clarification. For example, I'm a software developer located in South America and the company I aim for is a 100+ countries multinational.
Edit: I don't think this is a duplicate question because the other question is addressed from a more ethical perspective. Mine it's more about having your interviewing skills rusted so, instead of going directly to your first pick, go to the 2nd and 3rd to practice BUT, if the offer is good enough you will take it.
I believe that this duplicated mark along with all the answers gave me a better understanding of my own situation. Thanks a lot!
