Hey there! I work in a mid-size full service agency with a growing marketing team. We currently don't have a CD due to our size and current client portfolio, but that's a role I'd love to step into when the time is right and my management is on board with that. Any advice on how to prepare for that kind of role without changing agencies? Or anyone open to mentoring me? I'd love to learn from a CD or ACD to see what they're doing and what I can bring without leaving my team!

Hi friends! I'm relatively new at an awards competition company. I just found out my boss is leaving to pursue a creative director role somewhere else. I still have a lot to learn in this position but I'm confident that I can step up to the plate and fill in where my boss left off. However, I'm not so sure the rest of my team shares that same confidence in me... Any advice/tips on how I can really prove myself to people/company?

I had a really weird interview for Creative Director today.

It’s a small startup. HR interviewed me and asked all the hard hitting questions (how do you get design inspiration, how do you deal with design roadblocks, what sets you apart for this role?) which I thought was odd for a screening interview.

They made some affirmative noises then said the next step would be a design test (one pager) which I would present to a panel of interviewers including the CMO.
Anyone else think this is odd?

I've been approached by another agency for an open senior copywriter position. I don't want the job currently (happy where I am) but would like to connect with the CD and stay on their radar.

Should I be up front and say I'm not interested in this role but still keen to grab a coffee? Or lead them on a little bit and then say it's not right for me at the moment?

When you leave a position for another agency, do you tell your manager where you are going? I will potentially be resigning for the first time for a promo elsewhere, so unsure of procedure.

Also, if I call my manager (CD) to let him know, I don’t also need to call my boss’s boss (ECD / VP type), correct? I would think I just include him in the resignation email along with my CD and Exec producer (I’m production side).

Anyone renegotiated a contract when asked for an extension? Current gig is day rate but the work has been insane lately, 70-80hr weeks and some weekend work. Have a lot of stuff going into production would love to see through but feel like it’s definitely turned into a hands on CD role in both the workload and managing junior teams and want to ask for $100-$200 more a day and 1.5x for any more weekend work. Any tips?

She sometimes goes from 0-100 on a kid who is not listening to her, which makes me uncomfortable. Instead of saying no she deflects to me so I seem like the bad guy.
