From what I’ve read on here, it seems each job listing has several potential “levels.” I’m shooting for Level 4 based on my compensation goals, 5 YOE post undergrad working in program management/operations. Am I misunderstanding how JDs are written or does it sound appropriate that I appear qualified for jobs with “Lead” “Program Manager” and “Partner” as long as it’s 5 YOE or less in work that I’ve actually got?

Interested in any opinions, I have been with my company now for almost a year and have been interviewing with a company that I am pretty sure I will get. I like my current company but because it’s a consultant company and is based on work coming in I found myself not having much work for almost the entire time I’ve been there. Should I take the new position that will be a 20k jump in salary or stay with this company? Has anyone else had similar experiences?

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
