You guys are such a helpful and open bunch, I’d love some insight from this bowl... So I very recently turned 30 and I’ve spent the past 8 years working in various marketing jobs. I’m currently a “Marketing copywriter” at a big Financial Services brand. The pay is great, benefits are good, but Im BORED out of my mind. And I’ve been feeling this way for a while...I switched companies two years ago and then to a diff role a year into this current company. (Continued in comments...)

BIPOC who started working in healthcare advertising and eventually were able to leave, how’d you do it? My spec book gets me interviews for junior and mid copywriter positions, but when they ask me what kind of work I’m doing at my current agency, the whole conversation goes south. They either become immediately disinterested, or beam up and suddenly the interview is only about an open pharma role, which is more frustrating because if I want to stay in health I’d go for copy supervisor roles.

Recently started working remotely for a consulting firm in NY, currently living in TX. Single with no dependents, haven’t setup 401k or other contributions yet - my first paycheck was taxed at 38%. Because of my residence in TX, no NYC city tax was withheld (correctly). At 125k, 38% seems absurd! I checked multiple online calculators and even manually checked what my contributions should be against the tax tables - I should be closer to 30%. Does this check out? I hope it’s a clerical mistake

Hi 🐟, starting a grad scheme in Management Consulting at Accenture UK. Do you have any insights on standing out? I would like to transfer to their Strategy practice ASAP. On a side note, had a bit of bad luck as I aimed at Strategy Consulting in the UK so rejected BCG Poland for it and failed in a final round to McK UK, but then A did not think I got enough experience for Strategy so I'm looking for a genuine advice on this. I suppose interview wise I'm there.

Has anyone here tried applying with two emails? One before you get a referral contact and another made after you do get a contact?

At worst, screeners have to read 2 resumes. But someone might get caught with some automated document comparisons? Idk
