CD’s and ECD’s - how important are awards when you’re hiring a creative? I am currently at an agency that has no interest in awards and despite what I’m doing outside of work to win some {cont}

Does anyone watch Working Moms on Netflix? The woman working in the creative agency has a “PR Specialist” role, yet she comes up with hashtags, visuals, and campaigns. WUT?!

My team has no ACD/CD and no plans on hiring one. I feel like I’m not going to be able to grow without that level of creative leadership and my bosses don’t understand the need. What should I do?

Why would anyone take this position? It combines two roles, pays $20/hr... part time.. etc. Unemployment pays you more! also: Creative Circle needs to be phased out.. they rob creatives of their hard earned money.

If a recruiter says the role they're offering for a senior creative role is 150k+, how far up should I go? 160? 170?

I've been offered CD position within my small agency. Used to have an ECD but didnt re-up contract. I was already running the creative team of 12. Any ideas what I should be getting for salary?

I am sick of networks pretending to be 50/50 but hiring just men in C suite creative positions. “Let’s promote men and then hire women to work under them, that will change the ratio.” 🖕

I’m a designer trying to be an art director(for a change of pace). I’m not sure I want to do creative things at all anymore though. Has anyone here switched to a non-creative role, job, or career?

I thankfully still have an interview scheduled for an in-house AD role. How do I diplomatically find out from the hiring manager (who’s the head of brand) how much creative leeway i’m gonna get?

Random question. But has anyone here transitioned to a strategist from a creative role? Would being a copywriter benefit someone who’s trying to get into the strategy scene? Any tips appreciated!

Regardless of my skills, knowledge and passion for the work, I feel like our industry is so fucked up, I won’t make it to my dream job / agency. The economy is crashing, those specific agencies aren’t hiring or never posts creative openings, I barely know recruiters in New York, COVID just happened... and the clock is still ticking. Has anyone felt the same way?

As many other agencies, mine is going through a painful “restructuring” process. Wondering if there are some creative agencies in NYC hiring right now. I wanna be ahead of the game in case they keep letting people go 🙏🏻
