Would you interview for a position you feel you’re under qualified for? I have been a senior consultant of strategy at Interbrand for about a year now. I have a total of 5 years experience working in branding/advertising. I received a recruiter InMail last week regarding a strategy director role at a smaller branding agency. The job seems interesting and challenging and I’m def intrigued by the opportunity and title bump but I feel like I am not ready to take on the director role yet. Continued.

Might be a paranoid mom question - my 16 month old is starting daycare next week. So far, I’ve had virtual interviews/meet and greet sessions with the daycare staff. Today we went in for our in-person orientation and I noticed that my child is the only non-white kid in his class of 8. Not entirely shocking, but in my head (and having seen pictures in their catalog) I was hoping there would be a little more diversity. Should I be worried about my kid feeling left out because he looks different?
