I just interviewed someone a few levels above me. What person did at an AE level is extremely impressive. This has really motivated me to step it up. Can anyone recommend any books, workshops, tools, etc to be a better account person?

Interviewing for an AE position on an all-male account team this week (AS/AD/VP/SVP). HR sounded really interested in my background and I’m excited about the company. However, I’m a little apprehensive about the all-male team, especially as I’ll be the most junior role. Am I overthinking this/any advice going into the interview?

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!

Would any PPMD level Deloitters be willing to do a resume review for a potential referral? I was speaking to HR about my candidacy and was told I looked to be a “very strong candidate” based on resume but being nontarget should pursue a PPMD referral if I want a chance at actually getting an interview. I think this is because I am an undergrad looking for an internship post-jr year, but would love to provide more information if anyone was willing to connect. Thank you so much!

If a position for which I had a first round interview has since been put on hold, would it be reasonable to ask for an informational interview with the would-be hiring manager? In my experience, "on hold" has always been synonymous with cancelled. It’s frustrating and I like this particular agency, so I just want to make the most of this. Maybe there are other ways to handle these situations?

Given the current situation I know it will be hard to find a new job, but is it better to start applying now, wait until Aug-ish, or even later until Nov/Dec (I’m worried that may be too late and I may be let go by then).
