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.

Senior, pregnant and worried about busy season because half the seniors in my practice quit in the past two months. Directors have said to seniors “brace yourself”.

Doctor suggested to take medical leave if I am struggling. Need advice 😢

Currently in a fee dispute with our attorney for a personal matter. Our attorney was sued personally by the opposing party in the course of his representation of us. The suit was completely frivolous and dismissed by the judge. But our attorney spent close to $5K on counsel to defend himself and is now trying to pass that cost on to us. Is this appropriate/ethical? Where we had no control over those fees, it doesn't feel right, and many of my attorney friends agree. I'd love more thoughts.
