I work in tech and like many others, I get daily recruiting emails/invites from LinkedIn. I am 90% happy at my current job. (The missing 10% is because management in my team is really stingy when it comes to promotion and pay raise, not the case in other teams though.) So usually I just ignore these emails. But recently, I have been thinking maybe I should take these interviews. Because of the below factors:
- Maybe the job will make me 100% happy.
- To keep my interviewing skills sharp.
But there are also risks:
- If my current company finds out, that won't end well for me.
- Burning future bridges? Say if I pass the interview but don't take the job. I probably won't be able to apply again in the future.
I like to know what others do in this situation. Thanks!
