Hey everyone, What would you say is the difference between an account director and a senior account manager. I was just promoted as an account director when I quit my job and moved to the U.K and now having so much trouble finding a job as an AD. My last interview feedback was that they really liked me but felt like I was lacking new bizz skills and that the organic business growth opportunities I found and jumped on were “luck aka right place at the right” moment kinda thing?

Ex-consultant, now lead revenue at a small tech and considering a move either back to Consulting (ie director at Deloitte/Mck tech) or up to a large tech (ie account director at Aws/msft). I have interviews lined up for both and wondering if/how anyone has decided between the two recently ie job satisfaction, wlb, trajectory, pay etc. Advice appreciated!

Need some info: I'm looking for a new position and came across an opportunity at a media+creative agency as an Account Director. What're the main changes I can expect if I was to pivot from a purely creative agency in account management to a media+creative agency within the same dept? I'm going in for interviews soon and want to learn what I can in the interim.

I have been in the industry for ~ 20 years, career slowed down when I went part time to raise a family and care for aging parents and when I moved to Milwaukee, I took a demotion. I was part of Covid layoffs and have been applying for an Account Director role. When I looked on LinkedIn, the company has a lot of young people at VP level. How do I negotiate for that after the fact? What does VP mean at your company?

This doesn’t seem to line up with the written policy. (I’m splitting up the FMLA and 10 week leave, to use some accrued vacation in the middle, and wanted to add a few of those family care days.) Thanks!
