Laid off from an agency as a junior back in March. I’d always planned on going in-house one day, but would I need a few more years of agency experience under my belt first?

Nope. Just go for it if that’s where the job is. There was a time when people started in-house and stayed there without ever working in an agency. That’s why it wasn’t that desirable to start with. It’s only in recent years that agency folk have jumped the fence and made it cool. Now in-house is full of ex agency people, but it wasn’t always the case. Good luck, hope you find something soon OP!

I was always under the impression that you could only go in-house after three or four years in the agency world... sounds like in-house might be open to juniors and new mid-levels? Fingers crossed!

Do it, I mostly interned for agencies in college. When I interviewed for an in-house role (my first job) I realized that most of thee creative came from well known agencies. Looking back now, I’m so glad I jumped ship.
