Q: I'm currently in the final stages of applying for software engineer role and I'm getting signals that I will very likely get an offer.

I was told that the position that I am interviewing for is a more of a transitionary position, and that I'm expected to be promoted/transferred to a different position in a year or so.

There are some other positions in this company that I would be interested in being considered for. Would it be frowned upon to tell my recruiter about this


A: When it comes to working with a recruiter, there’s no such thing as too much honesty. You should be transparent about roles you are and are not interested in. The more information your recruiter has about your aspirations and career goals, the better they’ll be at finding the jobs you want.

At Client Server, our recruitment process involves learning as much about you as a person as we would your skillset and experience. It’s not in your interest to proceed with applications you’re really not interested in, just as it’s not in our interest to try and place you in those roles.

The best way to avoid this? Being totally honest about what jobs you want and don’t want.u are and are not interested in. The more information your recruiter has about your aspirations and career goals, the better they’ll be at finding the jobs you want.
