Hi! I recently graduated in May last year, and I took a role as a junior account executive. I’m currently looking to make the switch over to strategy, so anyone that can give me any helpful tips for creating my strategy portfolio or interview tips would be greatly appreciated!

Looking to pivot to a new agency to get exposure to different clients/type of work; due for promo from AAE to AE (1.5 years as an AAE) but won't come for another ~6 months at current agency - know they think I'm ready but company not in a position to promo yet. Any tips as I consider this change? Agencies doing great work lately to look into?

SalesForce folks, a recruiter reached out for an opportunity to interview for a AE position in my specialty. I noticed there is also an opp available locally for a Strategic Account Manager in my vertical as well. Any one know of pay difference between the two, responsibilities/expectations, how they are viewed in the org itself? I understand they are different but in my job today, I handle both roles so can go in either direction. Appreciate any input.

I’m interviewing for an AE position at a smaller agency, about 80 people.

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.

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?
