Switching to “worse” job for promotion?
I work in Corp Dev at a large tech company (associate level). I was recently offered a role on the FP&A team for one of our business units, at a manager/VP level.
I did not directly apply for this role - it was the result of recommendations from former colleagues. And honestly, it is not a role that I ever would have gone after on my own. But it comes with a title and pay bump.
That matters because I am not on pace to be promoted with my current team for another another year or so.
Would it be stupid of me to take this job just for a short term title and salary bump?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Also - If the title/pay were the same for both roles, I would not even consider this offer.
