How hard is it to get an entry level role as an Integrated Producer in a bigger ciry? I'm a copywriter currently working as a Digital Editor for a magazine with about 5 years of experience (some in the US, some abroad) and writing has burnt me out. I'm considering applying to places in Chicago for producer positions. What exactly are agencies looking for in applicants?

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 As a Sr Digital Strategist, what's the next logical role for me?

Thoughts on pursuing a new role at another agency when you might be on the verge of being promoted into the same role at your current one? I wasn’t really looking but a former coworker mentioned my name at the potential new agency for a Copywriter position (currently Associate CW). I’ve been at this level for over a year and feel like the promotion is on the horizon, so I’m not sure if it’s worth making the move now if the other agency’s offer is equivalent

What are the differences and similarities of copywriting at an ad agency vs. a branding agency? The reason I ask: I feel unfulfilled in my current role as a direct-response copywriter at a tech company and am thinking through next steps.

I also appreciate brand strategy (I started as a junior strategist at an agency before realizing I belong on the other side of the brief). Thanks in advance!!

So, I interviewed for this job that I really want and then it got put on hold. I checked back with them since it had been a month and they said it was still on hold and mentioned how it sucked because all their writers have been really busy and they needed the extra help. I don't really know how these things work but would it make sense to offer to help them as a part time freelance copywriter? Or if the budget isn't their for that position does freelance not work either?

Thoughts? How is this fair to ADs when CWs still only need to know how to write? Agreed that ANY well rounded creative is more valuable, but the road to a CCO position is different for an AD vs a CW

Hoping to get some thoughts on career path? I left an agency about 1.5 years ago (content manager and prev social) to go in house (copywriter). Long story short, agency wants to offer me a senior director role. However, this isn't client facing and would be marketing for the agency itself. I left to focus on writing. I love the company where I'm at now. The agency is small compared to my current company, but the title could be helpful later. Thoughts?

Has anyone ever been promoted to ACD only to feel like they were much happier at the Senior CW/AD level? I’m going through that right now and wondering if it will pass with time as I get more experience in the role. Or, if it doesn’t, what do you do about it? Would it look horrible to eventually take a job somewhere else back at the Senior CW level? I’ve always loved being the maker - focusing on writing and concepting. Having a lot of anxiety that this new position isn’t the right path for me.
