What are agencies looking for in a cover letter? How risky and “creative” can I be? If anyone has a good example, that would be so helpful. (My current job did not require one.)

Aargh! This month I’m filling in for a CD who dictates all headlines have Title Case, no periods, and no Oxford comma. Teams under me and supervising ECD have always followed her lead. WWYD?

Heard AmEx is building an in-house agency in NYC. Thoughts on this? Multiple recruiters have hit me up. Good time/place to go client side?

How common is it for writers to go to the video shoot they co-wrote? If they aren’t invited, and the CDs go instead, is that a leadership perk or an insult?

A friend asked me to review his portfolio site for a writing job. It’s terrible. I don’t have time to edit the whole thing, and I don’t know how to tell him he’d never get hired. What would you do?
