plugins – Save custom wordpress field to metadata


I have created select fields via a hook in the edit view for posts that get their options from an api.

Currently I am not able to save the data from the select field into the metadata when updateing the post.

I am trying to save the data using the save_post() function.
I access the field i want to save via the name attribute

echo('<select name="level" id="level">');
    foreach($seniorityLevels as $seniorityLevel){
    echo('<option value="'.$seniorityLevel->id.'">'.$seniorityLevel->name.'</option>');

add_action('save_post', add_post_meta_for_hooks);
function add_post_meta_for_hooks() {
   $post_id = get_the_ID();
   add_post_meta($post_id, 'join_level' , $_POST->level);     

This does not seem to be the right way to access the select value.
May you can help me. Thank you in advance.
