New to the industry and wondering what a typical Pharma Copywriter does in their role. A bit concerned about the lack of actual copywriting I'm doing so far.

Do copywriters typically go on shoots? And what role does the copywriter typically play when they do go? I’ve had inconsistent experiences.

Art directors: what is your role in scripting? As a copywriter, I expect my partner to be a part of the process at least at certain checkpoints to help shape the piece together. Is this wrong?

A recruiter from an agency reached out to me for a senior copywriter role in San Diego. I have 3 years of experience. I feel like that hardly qualifies for a senior role. Why would they reach out?🚩

Internship agency told me there were no jr CW positions. Weeks later I accepted another position at another agency but haven’t started yet. Today internship agency told me CONT.

Sr. Copywriter/ACD vs ACD, Copywriter The former means we are going to pay you at a Sr copywriter rate. The latter says we are going to pay you at an ACD rate. Former says you will grow into this role. Latter says you are this role. Agree?

I want to leave my current position...like now. But I’m a Senior Copywriter and all the positions I see in my city are mid level. Is it career suicide to go back to mid level so I can leave.

I accepted a job at a big agency as a Sr. CW and signed my contract. The next day someone from that same office reached out about an ACD position (obviously didn’t know I was already joining)...

Me and my SO make $320k, we have a child with special needs and we live in expensive Boston suburb, because of the public school system. We’ve been renting 2BDR 1500 sq feet for the past 6 years, our current rent is $3100, and our lease expires in the end of June. Landlord wants to know if we plan to renew for the same price. We can potentially look into buying kinda fixer-upper, ask for lower price or move out into bigger house. Thoughts?

A ban on big business’ efforts to merge with or acquire distressed small businesses will help protect markets from corporate control, but alone it won’t be enough. Other necessary steps include bolstering the small business-oriented Paycheck Protection Program and freezing utility payments. And, of course, small businesses will still have the option of combining to survive this crisis—the merger moratorium would apply only to those giant businesses receiving money through a federal institution.
