I had an interview this week. CD asked me "how much I was willing to sacrifice for my job." Cringe. Is this where were at now? Expected to give up any personal time or life for a company?

I got an interview for an in-house CD role. I’ve only freelanced as a CD before and have 8 years of experience. I really wanna nail this. Any tips?

I’m the only creative on one of the smaller accounts at my agency, where I am referred to as the “Creative Director” for the account. But I’m a junior AD... In interviews etc. can I say I am a CD? 🧐

Does everyone experience flakiness from recruiters? They’ll reach out about a job I didn’t apply for, get me interested, have phone calls, say they’ll schedule a CD interview and then ghost me forever

I just realized I’ve never done an interview with a creative director. Anyone have advice / a general idea of how it usually goes? They’ve already seen my book. Would it be a deeper conversation about my work? My life? My process? I want my mommy.

I was in an interview and the cd kept asking if the campaigns on my site were my idea or the copy writers. I kept repeating it was both of ours. I don’t believe that I am ever the sole creator.

Recently got laid off. After recruiters, applying online (Black Hole) & reaching out to my immediate contacts, I broke & checked out where former interns landed. One is now CD. Ok to contact re lead?

Should I double email a CD about my book/for an informational interview or will that backfire? I’m a recent portfolio school grad (Art Director) scared shitless by this job market.

After an interview with a creative director, who do you have to send the “thank you” note to? The creative director, the agency recruiter who arranged the interview, the external recruiter who got you in touch with the agency recruiter, your mom, everyone?

ECDs, what are the top three qualities you look for when hiring a CD for your group? When reviewing the work at the portfolio link, but also during the interview.

Today was rough. I cried at work. I’m lost & haven’t received much guidance/help from supervisor & teammates regarding this code I’m trying to debug. & the deadline is soon approaching. But in the midst of this chaotic storm (professional & personal), I’m grateful for the opportunity to learn new skills (even if I struggle with it) & for my health & my love ones. Writing this to remind us all, that we are greater than our battles & we will be victorious. Hang in there, we got this.
