I recently landed a mid level role at a reputable shop after a few years in agencies that didn’t have their strategy offering really thought out. I’m nervous I lack the structure and foundations to be a good strategist. I’ve been attending workshops and reading for years but it’s hard to that feeling off — a combo of imposter syndrome and also knowing I have a few gaps.

I’m brand manager and strategist with 5 years of agency experience working on a broad range of clients (no single vertical of specialization). What type of brand side role makes sense for someone like me? Where do you think my skills translate best? (brand development and campaign strategy, account management, relationship management). Thanks in advance for any guidance!

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)

I applied last year as Account Strategist in Dublin. I didn’t pass the LAST step. The recruiter encouraged me to apply again this year so I applied five days ago for the same role with the same cv and cover letter. Let’s guess what happened... A recruiter rejected by application. Why? What’s your opinion about it?

After many months unemployed, I got an offer in another city at a pharma agency, HCP work. My last position was as a brand strategist at a well-known NYC agency. With the surge in job postings, should I hold out for a position that I'd actually be excited about? Or is the job market still super terrible? I wouldn't even mind DTC healthcare, but HCP is just not for me.

Hi Fishes, I believe I have the business as well as legal acumen to contribute to Google in the designation of Deal Strategist, Global Business Practices. I went through the JD and firmly believe I can discharge the responsibilities efficiently. Any help regarding connecting with the Talent Acquisition or the Manager to explain my intrigue or any such insights upon the same, would be really helpful and appreciated. Any leads about such role and point of liasion relevant to the above job?

Reading materials for Snr Strats planning their move up, what’s the one you read that made you go ‘aha’? I’ve read Good To Great and am ploughing through Good Strategy Bad Strategy but need something more marketing-specific to be clearer on how my strategy peers in agencies are thinking and working, and how my non-strat colleagues see the role. For context I’ve worked in agencies for twelve years but been a pure strategist for three, so missed any formal guidance in a lot of the ‘basics’.

Would you be willing to take a demotion for more money? My boss keeps saying cryptic things that has me feeling like I am at risk of being laid off. Funny enough, today a friend reached out to me about an in-house position at her company. It seems ok and there is a chance I would be able to get a $5k or so raise in pay, but the position would be a huge title demotion for me from a mid-level strategist with 6 yrs experience to more entry-level coordinator role. Is it worth it?
