Don't imposter syndrome yourself out of a good opp. Take it.

Probably if you’re bored in your role it’s because you grew past that. Get the mid-level title, to be honest with you it’s not that much of a difference - just a little more responsibilities. That said, make the move only if the agency offering is as good as the one you are at. Good luck!

You are ready.

Don’t take these titles so seriously. Mid level isn’t some giant “all eyes on you” responsibility. It’ll be the same thing you’re doing right now. If it’s a good creative opportunity, take it. If your current role is better for your book and long term outlook, stay. You’re 1 year in, so your portfolio matters more than anything else.

The market heavily favors candidates right now. They probably have a solid sense of what level you’re currently at, and just want to make sure they don’t miss out on you. So unless you’re worried about your own happiness in the roll, I wouldn’t worry about it. They probably know you’re slightly junior, and don’t care.

You can do anything a mid level can do

Fine, but then after another hour on hold, I hear that it can only be redeemed in person at a ticket counter in Paris. I live in NY. Was never told of these stipulations before. Never again AA
