I just got called into an interview for my second job out of college. I’ve had my first one here for about a year.
The job pays a lot more money and would be a great stepping stone for my career. So I’m pretty happy about the opportunity.
On the other hand I had a hard time finding a job out of college and feel some loyalty to this agency. I like my job here and the people I work with, but I live in an area where I have no family and few friends.
What I’m wondering is:
Is a year to short of a time to look for a new job?
They have pretty big plans for my position (or me) next year and hiring a new person may put a damper on these. Should this play a role in my decision?
The pay at the newer job (if I get it) will start out higher than the pay that my current job would top off at. That’s got to count for something right?
Ok guys and gals if you could give me some advise or anecdotes on changing jobs that would be great.
