I was interviewed by the creative dept at an agency and am set to have another call with their HR tomorrow (I imagine for an offer). The tricky part is that another agency said they’d interview me this week. I’d much rather work at the second agency. How do I navigate this? Do I stall the first agency? How long can I delay accepting? Do I try to speed up the process at the second? Do I mention I already have an offer elsewhere? I much prefer the second but don’t wanna ruin my chance at the first

I’m at a subset of a big name agency, but not getting the opportunity to work on projects with a high level of creativity.

Looking for Accenture info! Interviewing at Accenture in two areas next week: Account Manager Creative and Brand Marketing and Content Experience Manager at Accenture Interactive The former sounds exactly like what I do now at an ad agency but on the in house agency team with Accenture being the “client”. Lots of execution work. The latter is more about answering RFPs for existing clients and developing some strategy and like 30% execution. I’m leaning toward the CEM role. (Cont. in comments)

I interviewed with one of those west coast tech companies, building a creative dept. I was mostly just poking around to see if they’d do permanent WFH. They won’t. But then they got to asking about my salary request. For the first time, I said “Ya know, I have to think about the role. Have they narrowed down a salary band?” Holy crap, I would have shorted myself by like $50k-$70k Always push for the salary band! Make them put their cards on the table.

Help! Applying to a job and one of the only real requirement is to show how I’m “adept at understanding client needs, and designing and implementing creative solutions”.
