I’m a year overdue for my SAE promotion due to covid and business issues. I was told by my SVP that the promotion is definitely coming before EOY & I just need to “sit tight”. In the mean time I have been interviewing for an associate brand manager role for a smaller CPG company. Is it worth it to make the jump this early if my goal is to go brand side anyway? Or is it worth it to stick it out & get my promotion first? The new salary is also probably higher than my promotional raise will be too

Are there any healthcare PR agencies who are open to hiring those with little to no experience but who are really interested in learning? I would be interested in transitioning from B2B / tech / advertising into healthcare and taking a lower title, but a couple recruiters have told me most do not want to train incoming talent. I totally understand of course, but wondering if an SAE applying for a lower title in a field they don’t have a ton of experience with is appealing at all.

My friend is an SAE. She interviewed with a company that acted like it was a red flag that she'd been in her current role for 9 months. But in NYC and PR people switch all the time. Is it a red flag?

How do you show your success & boost confidence w/out supportive boss? I took a promotion and changed careers a few years ago, which was a mistake. I feel trapped due to COVID, & my recent work experience doesn’t match what I want to do, & I only have 3 years experience in the field I want to go back to. I’m also very insecure about my accomplishments. I have been praised for my work but it’s anecdotal and hard to show in a resume, which makes me feel like the praise is fake/meaningless.
