Interview after accepting offer?

I’ve just accepted an offer with a company but my dream job/company reached out to interview me. Should I go ahead and take the interview?

    Hi Anna,

    The short answer is no.

    It’s typically viewed as bad form to accept an offer with one firm, but continue to interview and pursue opportunities with other firms. There is significant risk that you will negatively impact your professional brand and burn bridges with influential people within your function/industry - it can be a small world.

    However, there are always exceptions. The best thing to do is discuss your situation carefully with a mentor, trusted advisor, or career coach before making a decision. Whatever decision you make must be made with eyes wide open to the risk and possible negative blowback that may come your way.
