Apologies for all the questions but I need advice. I’ve been in media buying for 2 years and I’m hoping to transition to accounts. I interviewed with an agency who told me I would have to come in as an AAE vs AE. This position would be a 10k pay cut for me, is it worth it? Could I come in as an AE or do I have to be an AAE first to get experience? Thanks!

How are you interviewing for AE roles in this remote setting? Do you think quality of candidates is going down?

Has anyone ever had to compile a whole PR campaign as a writing assessment portion of an interview process? It’s for an AE position. Seems like free labor and free ideas that they can just run with.

What kind of experience would you want to see on a resume for someone applying for a Sr. AE title vs AE? How much does years of experience matter vs. responsibilities and/or higher education (MA)?

Offered a stable, okay AE position for 57 but also talking and interviewing with exciting tech companies for possibly 65. It’s the holiday season and I would feel crap being unemployed though. Help?

I know it's wrong but I hate interviewing kids out of college. I don't care that your class won an Addy. I dont think that means you should be a Senior AE right out the gate.

Interviewed (via Zoom) with an out of town firm about a possible lateral position in mid-March. They were extremely positive, hinted at an offer, but stated it was a timing issue with COVID (understandable). Checked in a few times, silence for months, wrote it off, but was informed recently go before the Hiring Committee early next week. Assuming it goes well, is it appropriate to ask to fly down to meet others/ learn more given the passage of time?
