I work for a startup and recently a headhunter working with another company reached out about a role. Turns out, this company is invested in my current startup and is also an advisor to my current company.

I have no intention of quitting right now but want to test the waters and see what kind of offers I can get.

Would be a good idea to apply at this company? Would they "warn" my ceo about the fact that I applied?

Need advice: I’m new to a company and the CEO decided he’s my manager despite there being a few levels between him and I. He keeps saying he doesn’t have time for 1:1’s and has cancelled for multiple weeks in a row - that management style doesn’t work for me or my career goals. A new person under him came in and I voiced that I’d like her to be my manager. Any advice with how to position this request to the CEO in a way that won’t offend?

A recruiter at Riot Games reached out to me on LinkedIn. They're hiring for multiple newly created corporate strategy roles.

This post/question definitely isn’t for the average successful big law corporate lawyer since it feels like I’ve taken a very unorthodox route..

Today I had a 4th round interview and gave a 10 min presentation for a position I really want. I honestly love everything about this position and is my dream job. I thought it went really well & she seemed very positive. She said she would follow up with the ceo (who I already met with) and let me know about next steps. I was originally told there would be 5 rounds and with every other round I’ve known next steps before I left the interview. This time I had to wait. Is this a good or a bad sign?

Hello! I have 3 yrs work experience at a top strategy boutique in Europe.

I received a verbal offer for an in-house position. Although there is still a final call with the CEO required, I’ve been asked to accept the verbal by tomorrow, with the written offer to follow after the call with the CEO. I’m expecting another offer from a second company this week, and would like to be able to weigh each offer.

Is this verbal offer just to solidify the numbers? If I accept the verbal, would it be bad to not accept the written if the other offer I receive is better?

How does your agency structure its Engagement/Activation/Digital Strategy dept, as far as titles/roles go? It doesn't seem as defined as other depts and, from what I can tell, it also isn't uniform across agencies. For example, in our Copy dept, the succession is:

1. Junior Copywriter
2. Copywriter
3. Sr Copywriter
4. Copy Supervisor
5. Copy Group Supervisor
6. VP, Copy Group Sup
7. VP, ACD
8. SVP, ACD
9. SVP, CD
10. SVP, ECD
