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!

What are the differences and similarities of copywriting at an ad agency vs. a branding agency? The reason I ask: I feel unfulfilled in my current role as a direct-response copywriter at a tech company and am thinking through next steps. I crave coming up with creative ideas and concepting with a close-knit team. I also appreciate brand strategy (I started as a junior strategist at an agency before realizing I belong on the other side of the brief). Thanks in advance!!

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 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.

Reading materials for Snr Strats planning their move up, what’s the one you read that made you go ‘aha’?

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’.

I'm a senior 3 in tax in Chicago looking to leave public accounting because I'm so burned out.
