Question: How do you differentiate a Junior from a Senior?

vijoin profile image Victor Inojosa ・1 min read

Recently I joined a company and they cataloged me as Junior Advanced (almost a semi-senior).

Although I know I'm not a senior, I feel like semi senior and I'd like to be re-cataloged soon.

I know all these are non standardized levels and I want to make a presentation about how a Junior can become a Senior Developer.

Can you give me ideas about this?
I want to help others (and myself) to clarify this.

Senior is a person who others on the team look up to. They go to this person for help, advise, and wisdom. It's a person that is worth more than just the work they produce because they lift up the entire team/organization.
