Day 1 of joining as a new hire , I knew I wanted to make Partner . Nearly gave up on it after ten years thinking it is impossible and finally made it in 12 years . A lot of hard work and a lot of luck made it happen

Never “gunned” for it. Just kept growing until it happened.

As a project leader (5 years into the job) I decided I wanted it and there was a clear path to get there

I started to consider it as one more alternative option as a senior manager when I was close to the principal promotion. The decision to really go for it came some 2 years into the principal role.

Should I wait and build up a few more years of experience before accepting a Senior role or should I jump in and work to fill the gap?
Next year, there will be an important deadline for the project I'm working on and my resignation could be critical for the team, how would you deal with it?
