At bigger agencies, I’m seeing that AD roles are asking for 5+ yrs experience while Designer roles require more like 3+. I’m an AD with 3 yrs experience. Would it be foolish to accept a Designer role?

For hiring exec/sr leadership, it feels like women need lots of industry exp while men can be new to advertising. I went to a panel & all 4 women were 15+ yr ad vets, the 1 man had 1yr exp in ads.
