I’ve been working in the industry for a year as CW. Was laid off at my 1st agency in May and started anew in June. If I wanted to look elsewhere to become a Sr should I wait til June to have a full year somewhere? Otherwise I’ll have had 3 jobs in a year haha.

What are copywriter salaries like right now? Lower than pre-COVID? About the same? Applying for jobs and wondering if I should lower my asking price because of budget cuts/layoffs. And I’m thinking LA, NY, and the Bay Area.

I got laid off in January and have been trying to find a new job since. I keep making it to the phone interview and sometimes a second interview, but always get ghosted. It’s so disheartening.

I have too much experience for an internship, and I have too little to be the top choice for copywriter roles. I know I’m a good writer, I know what I’m capable of, but it’s so exhausting trying to convince people. They always like my book but it’s never enough to get the gig. What can I do?

Former CW here. Went the planning route because i already had a corporate background that helped me start off at a higher pay. Recently laid off and trying to find an angle to exploit my creative and strategic expertise. I used to be a good cw -and even won awards- but i really needed the income planning offered. I’ve also done well as a planner. What can I do? I have mentored many creatives and strategists to know that I might be a good ACD, as I seem to have more talent at guiding than doing.

Because of these gaps, I feel like I get rejected from lots of jobs. How do I mention this in my resume? Thank you.
