Depends on the client, I’ve gone full suit, business casual, and sweater/jeans/sneakers for different clients in NYC

Yeah I’ve worn jeans to a client too. No sense dressing to the gills when everyone in their office is in casual attire, makes you look like a vendor not a partner.

Hi everybody! 😊
I've been working as a Junior Analog Design Engineer for a year and half.
I received a proposal for a Senior Analog Designer role from Bosch in the same city where I am currently working.
Should I wait and build up a few more years of experience before accepting a Senior role or should I jump in and work to fill the gap?
Next year, there will be an important deadline for the project I'm working on and my resignation could be critical for the team, how would you deal with it?
