I’m lucky to have a few career options right now (11 YOE in B4 consulting); 1. Corp strategy Director role in a large O&G firm 2. Corp strategy Director role at one of the FAANGs 3. Stay where I am and make P in ~2 years Which is better for longer term comp prospects?

Any advice on those of us trying to push into a strategy director role? Currently a senior strategist with plenty of experience, but every time I try and step into a director role (on smaller accounts/when the director level is short staffed) my anxiety hits 100 and impacts my performance. It’s starting to get to me, and I wonder if anyone has been in this position before... thanks in advance!

Is it fair that at the same agency one person can go straight to strategy director but others have to be ASDs? I had usually heard you either had that ASD role or not but not doing it case by case. Just curious how others do it. Not arguing the point of being ready, just trying to figure out if that’s a trap or if it’s common.

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.
