Rejecting a job offer at Google [#permalink]

Dear All:

I currently have a job offer at Google - the pay is great and I would love to work there; however, I'm not really excited about the job position (HR / ops-related work). I would love to interview for positions in Business and Operations Strategy or Product Management. How do I talk to my Google recruiter in a way to reject the job offer but mention here are 2/3/4 open positions at Google which would be my dream job?

PS. Currently in a part-time MBA program. Looking to do corporate strategy / development in the tech industry long-term.

Thanks!

Why not take the position, put in a year and then go for an internal transfer? Seems to me that getting INTO google in the first place is the hard part, and an internal application a year in would do well. Plus it sounds like it has an operational bend do it and what you want is operational, so perhaps its not that bad of a fit?

I guess you have to ask yourself if you are willing to loose the chance of working at google because the role isn't ideal. Remember the old tale: industry, function, location..... pick two.

Problem with telling the recruiter is that begs the question - why did you apply to a job you didn't want?

Thanks for the advice rhyme. I guess it does come down to whether or not I want to take the risk of not getting an interview for another position. I'm just worried that I might hate that one year of work and feel like I took a step back career-wise...I suppose this may be an opportunity to take a risk and see if I can get my dream job by the end of next year!

Is this really a step back, or is it just not your 100% dream gig? It sounds as if it's still a good job, it just lacks certain aspects you would otherwise want.

One way to approach it might be to say that you are excited about the opportunity but recently discovered position X and was wondering if you could interview for that as well. It's all in the delivery really, but don't be surprised if they aren't thrilled with that approach.
