How many bullet points is too many for 1 position? I've only had intern, associate, senior (for 1 month) experience at the same firm. Add in the education and other stuff, and I can't quite reach 1 page unless I load up on the associate experience (10+ bullets).

In the past six years I’ve grown from an intern to my current position in an average-sized agency (~80 people) in a medium-sized market (Southeast). I’m starting to look for the next opportunity, but not sure how to best position myself and what job to look for. I develop creative myself, with extensive skills in photo/video, Lr, Pr, Ps, Ae and C4d, I manage a team, develop concepts, pitch to clients, pioneer innovations, build case studies & have two masters. What am I & where should I look?

I don't know if this is a recent change but I’m seeing postings for junior copywriter/community manager roles. Have these roles always been attached or posted at a junior level? Is this merged role worth considering as someone young in the industry with more traditional intern and freelance copy experience.

Got an offer to work at a boutique PE fund as an intern for the next few months. The role is however unpaid and the fund is new. For some background, I’m going to be starting at a T-2 firm doing CDD for PE funds in January. Wondering if getting this kind of experience looks good when I apply to analyst roles 1-2 years out? Don’t want to work without getting paid unless the experience is valuable. Would love any perspective on this.

For every MBB class, is it true that more FT hires ( >= 50%) are gotten from the FT candidate pool (people who went thru the FT hiring process) rather than from their respective intern pools (who got converted from intern to FT)? Regardless of whether this is true or not, I’d appreciate it if anyone could provide me some numbers on this

I've done 6 months as an intern post-grad and currently 2 months into my FT role but I'm really starting to feel like consulting might not be my thing. Would you suggest I toughen it out for another 4 months to hit the 1 year mark, or can I only count 12 months fte when hunting for jobs? I feel like it's really taking a toll on my mental health. Thanks for your suggestions.
