Think my layoff is imminent... when this thing all ends, will it be wildly counted against me? Will agencies ever hire again? This is causing me just such sadness and anxiety, im working my butt off

Still reeling from a client call this morning. Been trying for 2 months to get basic brief info from client to host a preliminary meeting. Client does not read emails and any calls have not helped...

Any Type B people in account? The teams I’ve worked with have primarily been Type A people. As a Type B person, it’s stressful for me and makes me feel bad for being Type B.

I have overall 3 years of post grad experience but 2 years of AE experience. Is it unrealistic to apply for Senior AE roles? How about Account Supervisor?
