Had an interview where the agency said they don't do "junior / mid / senior" levels in their creative department. My CW and I are st that stage where that seniority is important for us and for our future progression. Is it one of those things that we fight for on the contract, or just sign anyway and just put "senior creative" on our LI title? I've never come across this before, so any experience or thoughts are appreciated.

After a good interview with the ECD and HR, my CW and I have been asked to come by to the office to meet the agency founders and have a beer with them. Is this just a final character / personality check? What should we expect during this kind of meeting?

I got laid off in January and have been trying to find a new job since. I keep making it to the phone interview and sometimes a second interview, but always get ghosted. It’s so disheartening. I have too much experience for an internship, and I have too little to be the top choice for copywriter roles. I know I’m a good writer, I know what I’m capable of, but it’s so exhausting trying to convince people. They always like my book but it’s never enough to get the gig. What can I do?

Interviewing for an AD/CW team with my significant other....but the agency doesn’t know we’re dating yet and we originally didn’t know the jobs were for a team role. We work well together but are curious if this is allowed? When should we tell them we’re dating? Lol

Hi, everyone. I’m copywriter looking to break into UX writing. I don’t have a lot of UX work in my portfolio. I’ve mostly worked on digital campaigns on social media and some website writing for brands. I’m wondering what I need in my portfolio to help me get a job as a UX writer. Is there anything specific I should include? Anything I should learn and prep for interviews? I don’t have money to go back to school unfortunately.

Has anyone else had experience with this? Should I tell them now that I am pregnant?
