  • The time I turned down a startup

    The author reflects on a missed opportunity in their career. While working at Google, they were approached by a recruiter for a medical startup in San Jose. Despite the potential for career growth and a higher job title, the author ultimately declined the offer due to the stability and familiarity of their current position. The recruiter argued that it was a mistake, but the author sought comfort over the unknown. Although they wonder about the outcome, they have not checked on the progress of the startup and hope to find peace with their decision in the future.
