Does anyone have freelance gigs ontop of their FT agency role? If so, how many hrs is the freelance gig and how is the work balance? First time entering this territory, a bit nervous 😬
I saw on Adage that Alto made this campaign for Upwork. Does anyone know what a CD’s role at an in house agency does when working with an ad agency making the work? Is it just oversight?
Is anyone hiring for a programmatic role that does not require hands on keyboard experience?
If you’ve been laid off and currently don’t have a job, do you take the first offer you can get? Or hold out for the possibility of a role you may like better.
I have an interview at an agency that’s not crazy exciting to me, but right now it’s better than absolutely nothing
Just witnessed a company take down the job listing for a ‘Senior Social Strategist’ role and re-upload the same exact job description, tacking on a few additional job requirements, under the title ‘Social Media Manager’. Sounds they are trying to hire for a Senior level role but pay a mid-level salary lol
Applied to a copywriter job and discussed salary with the recruiter - 90/95K would work on their end. Just spoke with the hiring manager, who mentioned this being a “senior copywriter” role. If that’s actually the case, should I try to negotiate more $$ if I get an offer? And why would the job posting not say senior if it is?
Asking for a friend. Is a 10k raise (75k ->85k) for a promotion to a midlevel creative position in NYC low or typical??? I feel like the raise itself which is only 13% (and inflation eats 5-8% of that) seems low and I want to encourage them to ask for more.
Started a new role at a new agency and I’m not sure it’s what I envisioned. It feels like they don’t have a need for me on the team. How long do you give yourself to settle in before you question if this was the right move? It’s been about a month. Being mostly remote doesn’t help, either.
I’m starting to realize if they wanted to, they would. Every year there’s a Where Are All The Black People event, multiple initiatives to get black people in the door . We all show up and we all say “we are here” we have potential, creative abilities, drive, we are literally trying to get in just give us the tools and the entry level role. Yet somehow the same questions are asked every single year. Like do you want black people yes or no lmao
Any paid media analysts here? What is your work load like and what does your day to day look like?
Right now I do organic content, strategy , and some paid. I have an interview coming up for a paid media analyst role and want to know what I’ve gotten myself into! Thanks in advance folks
I've been in my current role for 6 months, working under a full-time CD and freelance CD. I'd been over-performing and leading creative on a large campaign for our most important client, when suddenly the full-time CD was fired and the freelancer's contract is up next week. Neither of their roles are being replaced, leaving me at the helm. Am I crazy for thinking this calls for a promotion and raise this soon?
When I see someone announce their new job on Linkedin and notice it was for a company that I was told is on a hiring freeze.
Went to the brand side almost 2 years ago and I’m looking to get back on the agency side - if anyone’s hiring for Group AD / or VP Account / Sr. director ect let me know. 11 years working on CPG as a client lead , media strategist and project manager !
Two different recruiters reached out to me within the span of hours about the same role. I had already responded to one with a salary range, but upon the 2nd recruiter reaching out I learned the range I gave was lower than they’re willing to pay. The first one didn’t say anything about “no one else can represent you” but I wonder how I should approach correcting my salary range to the first recruiter?
Is now a bad time to find another job? I think I keep hearing about people getting laid off and another offer was actually retracted from me because of a hiring freeze. I would assume new comers are the first to go.
Are there ad agencies that foster ADs to hone both design and AD skills on projects? My background is design and I’d like to mix both in my role. The big ideas, and the design
Hi! I’ve been working as AD since 2018 and I’m looking for new opportunities in L.A. Do you know if any agency is hiring? Any recommendation? Thank you!
Ok so, how are my fellow job hunters coping with the current hiring market?
Four months into the job hunt and fatigue is kicking in. Holding on tight to my “values” but feel a sell out situation brewing. Rent is due every month! 🥲
Do you list all of the clients you’ve worked with on your resume? After 16+ years (including leadership roles) it would be dozens of recognizable clients without much room for accomplishments, but I’m wondering if I’m missing the opportunity ti catch a recruiters eye without them. Should I include a few for each role? What do you recommend?
We’ve all seen a gimmicky resume/portfolio come across our desks at one point. Hell, his isn’t the first alien themed portfolio I’ve seen. Or even the first persona built around a last name. My point is, this isn’t an out-of-the-box approach to advertising or grabbing agency’s attention. New/rising ad folks: We’ve done this already and we did it with grace. You want to enter the ad world? Know where the people hiring you raised the bar to when they were in your shoes, and at least meet us there.
Looking for a good job hunter/company that can help place director/VP level media execs in remote position (located on West coast). Would love a connection or company anyone recommends!

HR people: with all the lay offs, what’s the strategy when hiring freelance? Trying to get the cheapest cost or realizing you need to pay more for quality work?
Tangibly, what does a name like Droga or W+K offer you outside of the advertising industry?
For instance does the Droga name open up more doors if you transition into a brand side role in entertainment vs a non-coveted shop?
Hey everyone, I’m a recent graduate trying to get my foot in the door, but it’s been really hard to find something & it doesn’t seem like many agencies are looking to hire juniors rn. I’ve been trying to contact people & show my book around. Everyone is generally very kind & give positive feedback, but there’s still no result, really. What would you recommend to do for someone in my position? Is there something I do incorrectly?
Thoughts and best practices on sharing examples of strategy work to a hiring manager at an agency under the same holding company as my current agency? How much should I blind the work? What are some rules to remain legally compliant? Or should I avoid altogether?
Found out that my new role comes with a personal development budget! Looking for some suggestions of how to best use $. I’m a media coordinator for the traditional side of media. Know a good amount about print. (7years working at Gannett previously) Any ideas would be neat!
I just accepted a job offer at a company I've wanted to work at for the highest level currently available, since I'd been waiting a year for something higher and it didn't come about. Now the level higher was posted (my luck, and they didn't know the person in that role was resigning until after my interviews) and it more closely aligns with my experience. Do I say something or just take the L here?
“In the next two years, Burger King, which is owned by Restaurant Brands International (QSR), is planning to invest $400 million in improving the brand — $250 million will go toward updating restaurant tech, kitchens and remodeling, and $150 million to advertising and digital products. Franchisees will also invest in improving the brand.”
Hey everyone, I recently started a new role and didn’t pass my probation due to mutually it not being the right fit. What are some good questions to ask at the interview stage to find out about team structure and processes? So I can get a whiff beforehand of what I’ll be getting myself into?
Just got turned down for a job I really wanted. No interview. I even had a referral, but they didn't even look at my book! Feeling empty and worthless right now. I know I have inherent value as a human being but I am so desperate to succeed and can't seem to catch a break. Just wanted to vent. Thank you for reading.
What does EY typically look for (in terms of length of experience) while hiring SC’s with cyber experience in other big 4’s, and a masters in infosec?
6th year CRE associate at a fairly large firm (400+) thinking about leaving the firm when/if things ever get back to somewhat normal. I've done mostly acquisitions and leasing work. What are the best paths for a CRE associate law exit? Where would you suggest I focus my efforts?
Had three interviews for a role at a startup and was scheduled for a final round with the CEO and hiring manager. The final round interviews were rescheduled once and now canceled due to calendar conflicts (always told the day of). I haven’t been told that I’m no longer being considered but is this a nail in the coffin?
If MBB provides such great exit opportunities. Then why there are thousands of casing coaches (ex MBB) who spam their services everyday across the internet instead of becoming VP in industry, hedge fund or exiting to FAANG? I’m not trying to bash anyone, but rather genuinely curious
What are exit opportunities for those at EY TTT? I’m a tax associate that recently got an offer in EYs TTT practice and I was wondering if this would be a good Segway into the tech industry?
SAP SD Consultant at Deloitte USI
YOE 4 yrs
Looking for Product based companiesNewco
Nearly a year in on a shrinking SDR team.
I am finding it increasingly unlikely that I'll be able to get off this team over to MM AE until the empty seats have been filled and brought up to speed.
At this point a move sideways into an AE role elsewhere is looking better and better.
Should I be patient or just take the leap?
Any tips on best positioning that in an interview?

Not receiving calls for SM or AC even profile is good and have posted in LinkedIn, Naukri, Glasdoor. Known circles are stating that Service based companies in india won't pay more than 30LPA for SM / AC profiles as a reason for not getting calls. Is it true? Any inputs please ?
Can anyone share the mapping of levels to Proserve? I am a Senior Manager at Deloitte and recruiter just called me for a senior advisory consultant role but that feels like 2 levels back at least from a Deloitte perspective.
SAP contractor hiring is broken. Everyone knows it. On one end we have customers paying good money for all levels of talent and on the other contractors are being j***d off by vendors and layers. It’s the classic case of a highly fragment and low NPS market. Anyone here wants to partner with me on creating a marketplace for sap contract work which charges a flat fee with transparent pricing and vetted contractors ?
Anyone know anything about working on the consulting arm at Excelacom? I'm applying for a manager position after a recruiter reached out.
The one red flag I've noticed is that only have a 5 day sick leave policy. I plan to ask them more about that.
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, currently in an non-IBD FO role (tsy sales) and was curious how mgmt cuts out bonus for us. Unlike IBD where they bucket, do they just take a set x% from our base? How about my peers? Thank you!!!
Do any creative directors or recruiters need help with childcare in Chicago?—————— as a Jr Art Director I know hiring will continue to be slow BUT I have been working on and off as a nanny and would love to help some people who could possibly help me network. I am GREAT with kids, can give you references, responsible when it comes to Covid and staying healthy, and in need of a purpose other than finding a job. 😁
I have been on my job for 8 years and have been taught a lot throughout. I have my BS in healthcare administration. I’m in revenue cycle and I’m trying to get a better job. With my degree what jobs should I be applying for?
Was in Dallas this weekend. Y’all have A LOT of good Chinese food... missing it already😋
Anybody here has anxiety reaching out or pinging people? I’d have a full blown anxiety even pinging people who have told me to not be afraid to reach out to them.
Only worked at my new job 60 days and I’ve had an epiphany. I will be quitting this new job in 2 weeks to move my life elsewhere. Should I feel guilty? I actually feel very relieved.
Had a recruiter say they’d love to bring in more “diverse talent.” Moments later they threw out a number that would’ve been unacceptable a year ago. This year? It’s disrespectful. How dare you. Get 💵.
