Been full time for 3 months with about 6 months of internship experience. Someone just reached out with a senior associate position somewhere else. Thinking about staying where I’m at. Is that dumb?

Please hear out the person regarding the role. You could be ready and not even know it. Or you could learn what that agency thinks is required of the senior position, build the relationship with the person reaching out and then put an action plan in place to get the skills required to be ready in X amount of time.

If it’s a reputable agency that’s at least the same or better than your current one, take it. But only with a good raise. I loved my last job but I took a promotion and raise after 9 months and now I’m getting offers for even more.

Nah you need more than 3 months FT before taking a promotion. Don’t want to bite off more than you can chew just yet.

If you feel you’re capable of doing the job, no harm in checking out the offer 😊. Curious to hear other responses.
