Any advice on those of us trying to push into a strategy director role? Currently a senior strategist with plenty of experience, but every time I try and step into a director role (on smaller accounts/when the director level is short staffed) my anxiety hits 100 and impacts my performance. It’s starting to get to me, and I wonder if anyone has been in this position before... thanks in advance!

I'm up for a promotion to Senior Strategist, is it reasonable to ask for a bump from 65k to 105k? Was supposed to get a raise last year but covid salary freezes happened. Glassdoor & real agency salaries show low 100k as avg for the role, but never heard of anyone getting anywhere near a 62% bump without jumping shop... NYC, 5 yrs exp (3 agency, 2 media)

Opinions on pre-hire assignments? I’m in the final stages of interviewing for a senior strategist job and they’re asking that I put together a robust presentation to refresh a program. They want me to think through messaging, channels, competitive, measurement, etc. I then have to present my strategy in an hour long meeting with the hiring manager and higher ups. Is this normal? I’ve never been asked to complete something so comprehensive for an interview process.

Hi folks! I’m currently a PM intern at a big Chicago agency but I’m looking to transfer into strategy. I don’t think I will be getting an offer from my current agency as it seems they are focusing on hiring more senior level management. Is anyone hiring or does anyone have any leads/ someone who could refer me for a junior position? It would be much appreciated as a fresh grad. Thanks!! 🤠
