I'm interviewing for a senior level support escalations role at a social media company, and the interview went well. I observed that the interviewer seemed excited about my background and my answers resonated, and she'd like to move me to the next stage.
However, she mentioned offhand that I may enjoy being in a more deeply customer facing role on X team.
I agree, although I would knock both roles out of the park since my current role specializes in both, with an even split.
But I feel like I'm best served in this interview to push back and say "no I think this is the best role for me." But I don't know how to say that since I think both are good in their own way.
How to approach?
Update: To those new to job interviews like I am, here's what happened after I indicated my interest in the other role. It was met with complete positivity, and they mentioned they actually encourage this as they "want to find the best fit for you as long as you're willing to have multiple interviews. I moved on to the next round of the job I was initially pursuing."
