Advice for transitioning from pharma to a consumer? I graduated in 2020 and got a job in pharma, because it’s the only industry that was hiring. I really like my company, but I’m not going anywhere creatively. I want to get a job in a creative agency that embraces out-of-the-box ideas. I have a portfolio that I’m pretty proud of but I haven’t added to it since I graduated. I’d like to avoid portfolio school (hello, debt) but am ready to put in work outside of my day job. TIA for advice!

I don't know why this is the case and maybe it's just my agency but it seems like the people who are most eager to send out "internal trend email digests" be it cultural trends, social media changes, creative inspiration or whatever always seem to be people who are grossly failing in the primary role they were hired for.

I'm in Silicon Valley, and been in the industry for about 15 years now. Fell into the corporate in-house role and been in those ever since. I primarily do marketing/brand design. I'd love to get to AD level, but I think my main issues has been that I rock the boat a lot and don't play the "corporate game well", piss off the wrong people. Does anyone have any advise for how to advance in corporate environement while keeping the integrity of creative alive?

Would you take an offer where there’s a lot of red flags about the company, the title is down leveled, but the money is better? For context, it’s not a creative role, I’d be the first woman on the team, there’s no bonus or 401K match, but the salary is $50K more than my current role. But there are so many red flags and the entire process was very chaotic.

Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.)

Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!
