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 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?

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? 🧐

Anyone have any memorable creative ways to say thank you after an interview? Want to leave a lasting impression but don’t want to overkill.

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?

Hi! I had a phone interview and (in my opinion) went really well. The recruiter told me to contact after two days (if she didn’t) to schedule a Skype call with the creative department (count)

It’s my first time interviewing a digital creative prospect for my team. What would you ask on a first meet up?

I’m starting an interview series with creative teams at agencies and in-house, from the CD to the junior (like 3-5 people so a small team or sub team). What would you want to learn about?

If a 75-min interview with the creative lead,CD followed by other teammates indicates that there will not be a second in? And final decision would most like be made after?

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?
