Going on month 4 of being out of a job and the depression is starting to kick in. Not really sure where else to turn but staying in bed all day, even when I have interviews. Still going to keep my head up though ☀️

Interviewing with small agencies who want your big agency experience, etc. Do you negotiate salary assuming they have a lower range? Or do you shoot them a big agency figure? If lower, how much do you mark down?

Took a job a few months ago and I told them during my interview that things like concepting and full campaigns were a priority. I’ve done none of that. Designing emails & print. What do I do? (Ctd)

How important are thank you emails after interviews during this time? For the majority of my interviews, the internal recruiter/HR has not provided the emails but during the interviews the team members mention to be in touch through HR. Or get their email for questions.

I feel like my team can sense when I'm interviewing. I could have every other time on my calendar available and they still always schedule the meeting at the exact same time as my interview.

Thoughts on completing tasks/tests for a job interview? I don't really care for doing them but I kind of get why potential employers ask .... anyone straight up say “nope, not gonna do it”? How’d that go over?

I got through multiple rounds of interviews for a job and didn’t get moved forward. It’s a Sr job and I’m Sr level. I asked for feedback on the interview process and was told there wasn’t anything specific, I made it far and did well. It made me wonder if asking for interview feedback after Sr level interviews is really appropriate? Should I be far enough in my career that I don’t need that specific feedback?

As part of unit reorganization due to economic slowdown, a couple of months ago, my temporary contract was not renewed, even if my feedbacks were excellent. Do you think that it would be better to “lie” in the cv and during interviews telling that I am still working for the employer or it is better to tell the truth saying that currently I am unemployed, even if there could be some biases due to the working statement? And how it would be a nice way to justify the unemployment statement?

Should I hang up on or continue an interview with a CD when they ask me to tell them about my work in my portfolio because they haven’t looked at it at all even after I gave them my portfolio link after they requested for it? They’ve had an entire week to at least skim through. It’s one thing to ask me to tell them about how I approached it etc but to outright admit you didn’t even look at my portfolio?
