I’ve been working in the industry for a year as CW. Was laid off at my 1st agency in May and started anew in June. If I wanted to look elsewhere to become a Sr should I wait til June to have a full year somewhere? Otherwise I’ll have had 3 jobs in a year haha.

Why looking to jump so soon? Stay at one place. I hate to sound old but also pay your dues

Is there no chance of a promotion at your current agency? Doesn’t hurt to look around, but getting laid off and leaving the other place so soon might draw questions, so be prepared with good answers.

This year, the rules don’t apply. If someone offers a job you want, take it.

Go for it, if you can get hired. Do you only want the sr title/pay or do you have the chops, experience to get it? If the former, chill. If the latter and you are underemployed, go. If you’re not sure, see what kind of feedback you can get through networking or even applying.

I am 30 and just got promoted to Senior manager.

Thanks in advance for your responses!
