    I'm in the middle of an application process for a role at a consulting firm. The role does seem interesting, and I would be happy doing it. However, I noticed the company advertised an opening for another position about 20 hours ago, which I would prefer (it wasn't available at the time I applied).

    I've been invited to an Assessment Centre which has been scheduled in and everything for next week. Is it a bad look to ask about potentially switching my application to the other role?

    Is there any reason you cant pursue both? If you get offered both then you can pick. You can certainly talk to HR on Monday for advice on how to proceed to make sure you dont treat on anyones toes..
