Currently have 2.5 yoe. Saw a role for ‘strategy analyst’ at my dream firm that says 1-2 years of experience minimum. Would this be a backwards move?

If it’s a different/better service line and a better firm I’d say no

Bet thanks all - will reach out to the recruiter now. It’s for a firm I got turned away from even after all interviews since ‘they didn’t have budget for it at that moment (November). I’ll say put me in play! Hopefully a quick interview process

At this point, all things considered in the world , do what makes you happy! Note: I would be sure to negotiate salary to match experience, and also ensure you’ll be positioned to grow professionally (ie timely promotions/leadership experience). Thus, no matter the title, the work is of value to you, and you are considered valuable to the firm. If all aligns, explore the opportunity! Sounds like it could be mutually beneficial.

Probably not. But even if it is, you shouldn’t put that much weight on short term stuff like that

Probably not, at least if that's the only data point. 1-2 is the minimum for consideration. The average of candidates or hires is probably higher.
