Can you rank up as a developer too fast? I was recently promoted from a junior to mid level role then applied for a mid level role at another company which came back with an offer for a senior role. Is there any danger in accepting?

Companies have different career ladders. Please be confident with yourself. If they think you are competent for it in their company, then you are. If you weren’t, then that’s on them, and don’t feel bad about yourself.

Thanks for the insight! I do know this but sometimes it’s good to have your thoughts reaffirmed. Cheers.

Nope! Unless you have no idea what you're doing. But if you've been in the field this long, you're already knowledgeable enough...

ABSOLUTELY NOT. You can move up in your career too quickly if you are tripping over yourself because you oversold your qualifications or getting blown out titles. But a developer cannot cheat their way through. If you're getting this kind of attention, you're doing well and should ride with confidence (and gratitude). It is extremely hard to get great developer roles and people take a long time waiting for promotions. You are probably a golden child. Well done.

There it is then.

As long as you are confident in your abilities and have the skills and aptitude for the job, there is nothing wrong with taking a title when it comes your way. If anything, you should be proud of yourself.

It sounds less like you're ranking up too fast and more like you're being recognized for some exceptional talent. In general, if you're still able to do the job well and you don't find the new role overwhelming it's never too fast. Godspeed!

Hey all, I seriously can’t find any Philadelphia-based Big 4 management consultant job openings other than a few senior manager or higher positions. Otherwise, they are all tax audit or tech consulting. Are the analyst/associate/senior management consultant roles titled differently? FYI, I had trouble with this pre-covid. Thank you
