I have an interview for an Account Executive role within an influencer marketing department at an agency in New York, I haven’t found a lot of salary info about this particular role online so I’m not sure what to say if/when the recruiter asks salary expectations. Anyone have any insight? I’m currently working a more junior position so this is a step up from that level wise.

I have round 2 of an interview this week with an Internal Operations Director for an Account Executive role. Is it looked down upon to ask the recruiter who set up this interview what kinds of questions I may be asked? I want to prepare as best I can but have no idea what kinds of questions I may be asked

Any advice on best approaches to countering an offer? Have been offered an AE position but would like to counter for SAE based on my experience (3 years). Also my current agency is planning to promote me to SAE in Jan.

How do you guys deal with burnout? This job was amazing when I started and the pay is good, but I feel like I’m being ground down a little more every day. I’ve been applying to AE jobs elsewhere but I’m competing with everyone who’s been laid off at this point I’m happy to get a rejection instead of being ghosted by the hiring manager. Any tips on getting out of this mindset? I feel trapped.

In the past six years I’ve grown from an intern to my current position in an average-sized agency (~80 people) in a medium-sized market (Southeast). I’m starting to look for the next opportunity, but not sure how to best position myself and what job to look for. I develop creative myself, with extensive skills in photo/video, Lr, Pr, Ps, Ae and C4d, I manage a team, develop concepts, pitch to clients, pioneer innovations, build case studies & have two masters. What am I & where should I look?

Interviewing for an AE position on an all-male account team this week (AS/AD/VP/SVP). HR sounded really interested in my background and I’m excited about the company. However, I’m a little apprehensive about the all-male team, especially as I’ll be the most junior role. Am I overthinking this/any advice going into the interview?

Apologies for all the questions but I need advice. I’ve been in media buying for 2 years and I’m hoping to transition to accounts. I interviewed with an agency who told me I would have to come in as an AAE vs AE. This position would be a 10k pay cut for me, is it worth it? Could I come in as an AE or do I have to be an AAE first to get experience? Thanks!

I am an Account Executive and work in the programmatic team as part of a wider agency, but I’m not sure this is where I want to be. I want something more collaborative, creative, and less to do with numbers and budgets, and I think this could be Brand Strategy. How might I transition into a role in this area?

So what’s the story with all of these very senior diversity and inclusion officers at many of the big advertising agencies? Have they accomplished the hiring of more diverse staff? Or are they just for show? Ours has been here for a few years and there hasn’t been one more African American strategic planner, creative, or account executive hired in that time. Has this position made a difference for people?
