I think about this all the time. I cringe when I hear people say “the diversity hire”. If you think hiring one blonde white woman is “diversity” in your organization, you can have it.

Thoughts on a US-based Brand Partnerships Manager role at TikTok? Expecting an offer to come through and curious to know others' experience. Have read lots of reviews and inputs from the past year, but seems to differ based on location and role.

I'm getting ready to accept an offer at a new agency, but what I really want is to go in-house. I had 6 very positive interviews at a co. but lost out by a hair. They said they're growing & would keep me in mind for future relevant openings. Is it worth pinging that co's recruiter to let her know I'm considering a role at a new agency & ask if they expect any openings soon? Feels unlikely, but I'd hate to start a new job and then get a call from the company I actually want to work for.

Just took a new job at a great agency. Moved my entire life to a new country. Was sold on the opportunity to do good work, but I've been here a month and it feels like they don't have a role for me. I hope everything will work out but working remote makes it so easy to get lost in the shuffle. Can anyone relate?

3 times I have gone through the interview process with big agencies and have gotten positive feedback all the way through to final interviews. Discussed salary and start date etc. only to be told right before offer time that internal team shifts or client scopes shifts mean the position is now on hold. But the team “loved” meeting me and as soon as a suitable position opens they’d love to interview again. Is this something you guys have experienced or am I doing something wrong on my end?

Trying to break into tech… do you think its worth joining a company like Amazon doing a position I know I’m capable in but not incredibly tech related just to have Amazon on my resume for future jobs? Trying to weigh pros/cons especially given what I’ve heard work life balance wise. Final interviews coming up and I’m just stuck on this.

The great resignation… are people opting out of the industry altogether? I know remote work, flexibility and generally terrible work life balance are contributing to people quitting their jobs but is it the industry entirely? We are hiring and it’s crickets. Across tens of jobs, and all departments most of which are open to remote. Is it everyone or just us?

What would you do? You’re working remote for an agency in another state, you like the people and the CCO. work is good honest grind. Nothing glamorous, not much potential for portfolio pieces. You like working from home. An agency in your city is hiring. They get decent visible projects for a brand(s) you and the world admire. More chance for sexy portfolio goods (more career options after too) but you’d need to go into an office again. Stay or jump?

So I’m nearly 4 years into my career and began making $100k this year as a social media buyer. While this is a lot of money as a 27 year old, my current job function is not challenging at all. My workload is also extremely light. While this may be an enviable situation for some, I’m worried my career is going nowhere. The account I’m on is the same one I’ve been on for more than 2 years and I’ve already asked off without luck. Has anyone else experienced a lack of challenge in their job role?

Should I take this new job? Been at current agency for a year, loved it and love my team. Pros: Benefits are great, as is the mentorship and work is generally quite stable. Cons: Lower paid The new agency is smaller and benefits aren’t as good but I’ll get a +45% pay increase and title bump. Work is different to what I’m used to which is both exciting and daunting (imposter syndrome will no doubt kick in!). Ideal situation would have been to stay in current role another year or two... help!

Hello all. Recently left an agency position to go back to freelance. Have an idea for a promotional thing to agencies as an experienced freelance copywriter, an ad-industry-specific promo I want to do and need a reality check. When you present concepts (i.e. ad concepts, websites, etc.,) do you use fake body copy? If so, what are the names you call that fake copy? I’ll be glad to share it, but because it would look like some kind of a stealth pitch I’ll wait. Thank y’all.
