Any (video) editors turned AD or CD here? 6yrs of editor exp, been at the same shop for ~2yrs with no raise/promo. Good people & projects but the paycheck is beginning to sting with healthcare copays, consumer costs, housing going up. Feeling unsure where my career should go from here. Senior editor is the clear next step, but I’ve begun feeling like my career might have more room for growth if I aim for more of a hybrid creative path. Curious if others have made that kind of jump.

Fresh out of college, could I just get a quick check from people more competent than me on how much should I end up saving per year not including 401k? I've got fairly high rent, am contributing 15% to my 401k, and fairly middle of the road food/car related/entertainment expenses. This puts me at about 9k in after tax savings which isn't nothing but only adding 9k to my savings per year (not including ad hoc expenses or vacations) seems pretty low. Thoughts?

Looking at exits into pharma and biotech. Have an opp at a biotech at the SM level. Total comp excluding equity is around $190k; RSUs vest over 4 years with annual refreshers, so first year equity would be around $6,200 and it would go up by $6,200 each of the next 3 years, plus whatever base bump I get. Very good benefits package. They envision 2-3 years before I jump either to AD or right to D. Solid opp? Or hold out to go straight to director level?

I graduated in May 2020 and found myself excepting a Junior Art Director position in Healthcare. I never saw myself in health but with many agencies having hiring freezes I decided to get some experience and save up some money in the meantime. Fast forward one year; I’ve added a new campaign to my website and I’m starting to apply to consumer agencies again.  Any tips to help me make the transition? Any place to avoid? Who have you noticed is hiring again? Thanks in advance :)

Is working at a healthcare agency early in your career a bad move if you really want to do the traditional ad route? I ask because I was approached to apply for one (highly awarded).

is the pay jump from jr. to ad or senior that drastic? Backstory. First generation college student, first in fam to have “an office job with benefits etc and pto.” Recently been seeing a lot of posts about creatives, why certain positions are more likely to get fired etc. what jumped out at me was the $$ people were giving for each position. I assumed jr’s are like 40-50k, ad 50-60k, senior 60-70k. These posts are saying it’s more like 40-50k, 60-70k and 80-90k. Is that real?
