Currently in the final round of interviews for a position at a larger agency, with a title increase and salary bump. I think it could really help me in my career. The problem is, I don’t want to be a producer forever. Eventually I’d like to move in house, preferably tech, but I have no idea what my game plan should be. Should I try to move to a different department before eventually going in house? Is it possible to switch things up without starting over from the beginning?

Do you think it hurts my chances during the job interview process if I’m married with children? When I was a more junior producer I was told marriage and kids would ruin my career as a producer by several older generation EPs—so, I’m feeling self conscious now that I have kids and am married and am interviewing. Is this true? Should I hide the fact that I’m married with kids when I interview?

There needs to be a law passed around posting jobs meant for internal candidates. Like at least indicate that an internal candidate is already being considered. Just remembering when one of my positions I had was posted externally even though they created it for me because “HR said so”. At the time I was like ok whatever, I have the job already, but looking from the other side, it’s terrible to give your best while interviewing when someone on the inside basically already has the job.

Hi All- I recently started a new role 3 months ago that just is not seeming like a good fit. I was presented with full remote wfh, and 22k jump in salary. I think those factors enticed me to leave my previous role- but being in this new role has made me really regret my decision to leave. Should I consider going back to my old job or just start applying all together for new ones? I don't plan on mentioning my current 3 month role in interviews if I did look for new opps.
