Is 72 hiring after the recent wins?
Leo Burnett Chicago is hiring a SVP Strategy Director on a “new QSR account” - anyone know what it is?
What are HR recruiters doing on LinkedIn all day that they can’t respond back to a message? They reach out about chatting about a role, I reply, then they never open my message. Lol what’s the point then?
How to respond to a recruiter re: a position that they would like you to apply for that is 2-3 below where you are at?
What’s the deal with Shake Shack? I feel like I see them on every agency’s website, and now they’re hiring in-house?
Curious about other people’s experiences: is it typical for part of an art director’s responsibilities to help with resourcing, look at burn reports, scopes, and manage people? Feels like these responsibilities would be for a more senior role but this is currently part of what I do at my job. Wanted to get a gut check if I’m being asked to have more responsibility than what my title reflects.
I have landed a freelance gig as well as a full-time position, I have agreed to take both. The full-time requires me to be 8 hours at work which is fine, I am a Senior Magazine Copy Editor... and the other one is for proofreading which is for a UK company. I am so afraid I might be spreading myself too thin 😬
I may have picked the absolute work time to do so, but I'm finally fulfilling my life long dream of moving to NYC.
If your agency is hiring, I'm looking for a copy/concept focused role.
I have international experience. Campaigns that ran across APAC for major brands. Some awards and campaigns that went viral.
Would love to chat about any opportunities. I'm really hoping to be surrounded by passionate people.
Does anyone have any experience moving from accounts to creative? I’m currently in the late stages of interviewing for an account coordinator position at an agency but my goal is to get into copywriting. Should I take it if I’m offered it? Or wait on my other copywriter apps?
My last role ended very unexpectedly when I left after three months in order to return to my home state to caretake for a declining family member, then, more unexpectedly,another (my beloved grandfather and grandmother). Coming out the other end now (or trying to, in all honesty), it has been ~6 months out of the industry, where I had up until this point been full-time and regularly employed, with no prior “gaps” in my experience. That aside, am looking for some honest, real feedback and advice:
Senior leader resignation tips? I landed a brand side role with a big pay bump / benefits Am currently in a leadership role at an agency reporting to my ceo.
Am considering offering 3 weeks notice given my relationships and reputation with the agency, my growing team and our largest clients. I don’t think my ceo would fire me on the spot or can match salary/benefits, but he will be very upset.
Any tips to navigate resignation?
Are there any independent digital media buyers out there? I have ongoing client requests for media buys but don’t have the capacity in house at the moment. Would love to know if that’s a position that exists out in the market and if anyone has a referral.
Realizing I’m clueless about how scoping works. How do agencies normally set up retainer scopes when the workload is expected to significantly ebb and flow throughout the year? (Like wtf does TurboTax do, since they go so heavy before tax season but then go mostly dark?) Do you understaff and hiring freelancers when big waves hit, or overstaff and use the slow moments to do pro bono work, research, new biz, etc?
Is anyone here familiar with the MSc in Strategic Marketing at Imperial Business School in London? I got accepted and I'm having a hard time sussing out if it's worth it. I'd love to get a brand-side marketing role in the UK (my partner lives there) but if that doesn't work out, I'm nervous that the school isn't well-regarded in the US and I'd struggle to get a good job here if I have to come back. Does anyone have any thoughts/advice? Thank you!
How does Advertising Agency work these days with their hiring system? One day the HR contacts you saying you can be a great fit for a position, 5 days later the HR tell you that it won’t work this time with no explanation.
In case anyone needs to hear this: if a recruiter asks you what your current salary is and you don’t share it and they ask you why and tell you it’s so they have your best interests in mind, that’s certainly not the case. It’s usually the exact opposite - they want to cap your desired salary for that role by using your current salary as a reference point that works against you.
Switched from an advertising agency to a brand role about 6 months ago. In one of my first discussions with my manager, they said that goals aren’t overly important and they know how I will be progressing. I’ve never heard anyone else talk about goals and if they are required. Is this a red flag? Should I push for them so I can use them in the future to push for a promotion when the time comes? I feel very weird about not having anything to track against as I’ve always had them at past jobs
If you talk to an independent recruiter, but then the hiring agency recruiter reaches out, do you let the independent recruiter know?
Curious : At what age did you feel like you found your niche in Marketing/advertising/ any role really?
POV: a 26year old account manager, still unsure if this is a suitable role for me, haven’t found that career spark….yet!
Anyone know what life is like at OMD especially in todays economic climate? Entertaining a interview at for a AD Analytics role as the pay would be almost a 70% increase from my current salary. Thanks!

I left a job at a small agency in early 2022 & laterally transitioned to supervisor role at larger agency. The small agency now has an open role on my former team & reached out if I was interested. The open position is for an associate director role, but they hinted at keeping me at the same level (another lateral transition). This seems like a waste of my last year, but my current role has me on the brink of burnout. What do I do?
What was “the moment” in your role you knew it/you were officially done? Whether the result ended up being resignation, firing, etc. Was there a specific instance you can point to?
Vmly&r: Are they hiring?
Man I’m unfulfilled and it’s killing my mental health. All my role entails is trivial design work. I can’t leave due to financial situation and I feel like I stand no chance at landing a new gig since all I have to show is shitty banners. I just want to be able to concept and help bring ideas to life. Thanks for reading my rant, maybe you’ve gone through something similar
When you have a vacancy on your team as a hiring manager, what are your thoughts when an applicant cold emails you? Like, they found your email address and emailed you to express special interest in the role?
Has anyone freelanced with an account background? I’m curious what that looks like and the type of work you do. Is it kind of a consulting role?
Curious..anyone in search or social that’s in a senior role or manager role with the same agency they started with…how long did it take you to get promoted each time?
who does the hiring at Mischief or Mojo Supermarket or Party Land or literally any shop doing the most creative work right now? It feels so gatekeepy. I want to throw my hat in the ring and network, but don’t even know where to begin. I’ve talked to some creatives who work at these places, and they say they have no hiring power, which I understand. I just redesigned my portfolio with new work and would love to get it in front of the right eyes.
Could anyone provide recommendations for pr/ad agencies in the Boston area? I'm an account executive with two years of agency experience looking to move to Boston from Philly and would ideally like to find an AE role for an agency there. Thanks!
During Covid I bounced around a lot (had 3 jobs over 21 months) and was actually fired from my last job in December.
Happy to say that I’ve am celebrating a year in a stable role! The longest held position since my role was cut in June 2020
Does anyone know of any agencies hiring entry level ( 0-1 year of experience )
I’ve been looking for a job forever. Im a freelance AD at a small shop, I’ve freelanced other places, interned at a reputable shop, and have a portfolio with spec work under my belt I get complimented on often ( It even helped me get a gig being a TA for an AD school)
In short, I’m running out of time / options and not too sure what else to do. Please reach out if you can help me at all, I’d be so grateful.

I currently work as a strategist but have more fun (and fulfillment) in digital marketing/paid media performance. I only have my bachelors in marketing, and have been working since I graduated in 2020.
I wanted to transition into a BA position. Does anyone have any tips on how to transition?
Welcome to this bowl. As an auditor who aspires to exit in investment banking, I figured I am not alone. Go crazy, ask your questions and hopefully people who made the switch will answer!

Question for 2020 summit:
Is there ever a perfect time to switch your role in an agency (Strat to account, account to creative etc.)? Or do you have to start from the ground up?
Good morning. I am currently a senior associate in BugLaw, and I have applied to several trial attorney jobs in Chicago offices of federal agencies since the start of the pandemic. According to usajobs.gov, my applications to the DOJ and CFTC were “referred,” and my application to the SEC was received and my GS scale verified. But I haven’t received any updates on these applications in over a month. Does anyone here have any insights on these or on federal hiring generally? Thanks!

How does GC policy works at EY? My PERM got approved recently but the attorney said they won’t initiate my I-485 until I get promoted (i.e. manager position). Is it true?
I have military benefits left and can get most MBA expenses covered at a Top 30-ish school. Should I pull the trigger? Has anyone regretted getting their MBA and pivoting into consulting after the age of 30.
31 YO, 8YoE Industry …I’m in the interview process at all Big4s currently but I’m getting hiring freezes and consistent ghosting. I can’t even apply to new roles at Big4 because I’m already in the process at all of them. Maybe if I had an MBA I’d be more competitive?
Is there anyone here from Baird willing to chat on a role I’m interested in/potentially provide a referral? Currently a consultant at a big 4 firm looking to transition.
Hi! I’m looking for a producer role out in San Fran (coming from Chicago), does anyone know of places looking? Or good agencies to reach out to? Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!
Hi ME 🐠s! Would like to know a bit regarding Business Analyst roles in MBB, T2 / B4 firms in UAE. I come from a target school in India (say MBB / T2 hires from my college every year) with ~1 YOE in consulting - based in Dubai. Would the stated firms consider me for a BA role (lateral hire as an experienced BA)?
Has anyone not been reimbursed for interview expenses? Followed up with the recruiter multiple times and no response. Role was for a manager position at one of the big 4 if that matters.
I'm currently a Senior Associate finishing up my MBA and I'm interviewing for a role in Corporate Strategy. I would like to discuss the salary range for this role with the recruiter. Is this recommended? What salary range should I be expecting as an internal hire? My target is 150k base for this role.
Why is that you see people rise in the profession of teaching who prosper to Principals. Is it What they Know? or Who they Know? with a Masters and with Honors my district has never even considered my Principalship even though I completed all the requirements. The rule: Principal recommendation- I will never see a Leadership role. This is due to my role as a Lead for the Union. Not Fair - Teachers for Teachers - turned bad for future roles.
Can anyone provide advice on a case interview for Deloitte's Future of Work, Workforce Strategy team? It's a Strategy Consultant role. Not sure whether to expect an HC or S&O case. Thank you!
Any insights on the manager pay band at EY in Federal? How much of a role does the level of manager play (e.g. M3 vs M4)?
Has anyone transitioned from partnership tax to another internal group (i.e. consulting)? Was the switch worth it?
Compliance doesn’t interest me like it used to and Partnership tax experience alone really limits exit opportunities.
Is it too late to get experience in another group if you’re already a manager?

I like brown shoes with my suits. I would only wear black shoes if I'm wearing a black or super dark almost black suit. Black shoes look stuffy to me. I try to avoid wearing them. Anyone else feel this way?
