Applied for a Influencer Marketing job and turns out it's a catchall position for a 15-person team they're building. Interview performance determines your position.
I've been told I would probably come in as a Lead or Director, and all things considered, I think Director would be the best fit for my background. However, I don't have formal experience in this field. It's influencer marketing. My strengths and weaknesses:
- I've been a top influencer for 7 years, and I think that's the foundation for success in the role
- Built and led 6 person team
- Worked with a dozen marketing teams over the years
- I don't have formal marketing experience
I think I'll get an offer for the company for sure. But while I want them to seriously consider me for the higher role, I think they're very incentivized to consider me for the lower role. However, I have offers elsewhere that would make the lower role unappealing.
How do I respectfully communicate I'd only like to be considered for the higher role?
