Trying to transition out of social media and into another role, but I'm at 10 YOE as a social strategist and it's difficult to transition. I can't quite find a role where i can apply my skills, learn new ones, and NOT take a massive pay cut. Is my best bet to try to move over to brand strat or consumer insights? Find a new career entirely? What's next for a social media manager stuck in a rut?
A good friend of mine graduated from Parsons this past summer, has degrees in Journalism and French, is a talented photographer and designer (which I feel I have a pretty decent eye for after working at a design-driven branding agency for half a decade). And I’m certain she’d make a fabulous junior AD or content strategist. Unfortunately she, like many in this pandemic, is still without a job. Any advice for her and/or shops/hiring managers/non-traditional job hunt tips to steer her towards?
how does one get a job in LA? Been trying to move for MONTHS but every agency only offers informationals because they don’t have an open role (strategy). I’m working with recruiters now but none 1/2
A good friend of mine graduated from Parsons this past summer, has degrees in Journalism and French, and is a very talented photographer and designer.

It’s a tragic waste of potential and I want to help. Any advice for her or shops/hiring managers/non-traditional job hunt tips to steer her towards? 🤞🏼

How much do you think attractiveness plays a role in succeeding in the consulting/corporate world? Ideally it wouldn’t but I’m assuming it makes a difference.
Is it bad to tell a recruiter you are actively trying to leave a job? I’ve played the “only for the right role” card a lot but its a lie.
I enjoy customer facing roles and strategy/operations. Is there any jobs that have a mix of both? Looking to exit with 2 YOE

Then they ghost or explain that they are a former SWE 😬 coming from MBB. Going to some super Niche role that people with crazy backgrounds are recruited for. Congrats, but not everyone has that background
