I'm a brand strategist at a media agency, but want to shift to a creative agency. What preconceived notions about media people would affect you when interviewing me? Flip side: any assumed strengths?

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? 🧐

Should I feel offended, thankful, both? Very senior creative job. Just navigated months of phone interviews, out of dozens of candidates I made the final 3 flown in for more/multiple interviews (cont)

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.

Creative ladies, what do you wear to an interview with the higher up and account peeps? Are jeans okay if you dress it up with boots and a blouse?

When you interview with a creative, do you bring up that you checked their book before you met with them? Can it come across as stalkish or ass kissing, or is it considered normal?

I thankfully still have an interview scheduled for an in-house AD role. How do I diplomatically find out from the hiring manager (who’s the head of brand) how much creative leeway i’m gonna get?

Got an interview today with a really famous creative that I admire very much and am honestly excited just to get the chance to meet him. Is it okay to be a little bit of a fanboy in an interview?

Anyone made the move from an Ad Agency to a Start-Up? I’m currently interviewing and it seems exciting but very different to what I’m used to. The interview process alone has been going on for four weeks. One hour zoom meetings at a time with different stakeholders. A world apart from the jokey, casual vibe of an Ad Agency Creative job interview where they’re much more interested in your portfolio.

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.
