If you get offered a job below your expectations at a company with room for advancement, don't be afraid to accept it. Then work your butt off to advance. Sometimes getting your foot in the door and showing them what you can do is the easiest path to success. I gave this advice to one of my daughters when she was (in my opinion)being too picky in her job search after graduating from UConn. She received three promotions in her first two years on the job. She was then at the level job she was originally looking for.
My daughter took a receptionist job in a state agency out of college (summa cum laude in English). Within 2 years she was office manager and a functioning paralegal. She’s moved on to a different state agency, at a much higher level (director level). Has given presentations directly to the governor. She’s only 35 now.
