Did anyone come to the brand side after being an agency copywriter? I’m considering it. I got laid off in a small market and I can’t move, so I may need to pivot.

I was making $130k as a senior copywriter at a smaller shop in NYC but was laid off. Did this salary give me an unrealistic expectation of what I’m going to make next, either in NYC or other markets?

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.

My coworker, a senior copywriter, was just laid off. They've got tons of experience. I've seen them churn out 5 individual scripts in an hour. Any leads I can throw their way?

I’ve been at in-house publisher agencies for the last 3 years but just got laid off from my ACD role. Is it too aspirational to apply for a similar title at an agency? Should i go for senior CW gigs?

I finally became a Senior Copywriter and then my entire team was cut and I got laid off. Now my only offers are for copywriter again. I’m torn between waiting for the title and needing a job. Advice?

So I recently got laid off and am unsure how to move forward. I’m kinda down in the dumps bc my career started so promisingly. I’d love to meet with a fellow NYC CW and chat over a beer or coffee.

Can anyone recommend an app or software for tracking billable hours to make it easier to put together and submit timesheets? I work for a small firm and all of our billing/invoicing is done manually. Every couple of weeks I go through my notes to type up my timesheets and I’m wondering if there’s an app that can record my time as I work and then put that all together categorized by client to submit for invoicing. I don’t need to note how much a particular client pays per hour.

Deloitte H1B consultants (others too) who’ve been laid off recently and received a salary continuation - Have you been able to view your employment verification letters?

Anyone who got laid off change their status from H1B to B2? I read that if we find a new job before the B2 visa is approved, we have to make a trip back to the country and get a visa to re-enter the US, which means we cannot enter before 2021 per the new EO. Any idea if the USCIS is approving B2 visas more quickly because of Covid?
