Apply to the higher title. If they don’t try to talk you down to a lower level, then you did it right.

If you have the right experience and skills they need, they will not reject you. They figure out the levels after they think you have something valuable.

So I’m very conflicted right now. I’ve been working for a small business for over a year and a half now with only me and the owner running the shop, but it’s mostly been me working until 7 most nights. The couple has been super nice, but with life events happening, I needed to pick up a second and third job. I eventually asked for a raise but was told no and that I would need to teach classes to do so. I have some job interviews lined up but I feel guilty doing it. Should I feel as bad as I do?

Not kind of time off. Not "hey could you do this one thing for me". Not "trying to save the client money so use your PTO but you'll be working". Not "let's turn everything into an emergency so they have to work".

It isn't a suggestion that they are unavailable. They are unavailable.

If you don't respect their time off, then why should anyone respect yours?

Do not be reaching out to your teammates that are on PTO.

Whatever it is, it can wait.
