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?

My partner and I are thinking about moving to NYC! Are there any CW jobs there right now or is it totally oversaturated from layoffs?

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.

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?

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?

Hey Accounting Fam - Started looking for a job when my company started going south due to COVID about 2 months ago. I’ve been very blessed to have survived 2 rounds of layoffs. Got an offer today that is a 15% increase in base pay. Company is stable and their leading in their field. Should I feel guilty for wanting to leave? I’m thankful my manager has kept me safe so far, and I feel like I owe her, specially since our team is short-staffed now. Advice and anecdotes welcome.

So, a spot I made (concept to completion) got shelved due to COVID forcing the client’s marketing plan to change. During that time, my partner and I were laid off. Recently, the spot aired, but the agency credits a different team for the work – me, my parter, and my CDs aren’t listed. Do I ask the agency to correct it? Just throw it in my book with explanation? Just take the L and chalk it up to that being how the industry is?

Those of you who started a new job during wfh or shortly before wfh, do you feel like you’re not learning as quickly as you would otherwise? Any advice for me? I’m just feeling very isolated and unsupported. There are days with no phone/video interaction with colleagues/higher-ups. I’m sure some of you would welcome fewer meetings, but I feel like I don’t have enough. I’m director-level so don’t expect handholding but I want some active participation from management in my development.

I've been struggling since February to get my WFH setup in a way that works for me. I live in a 2br apartment with my partner so clearing the extra bedroom of distractions (we used it as a video and tabletop gaming room) was an easy choice. Unfortunately my productivity is much lower than it ever was at the office. I don't really get distracted at home, but I'm not getting as much done either. Anyone else still stuck like this? My company doesn't provide budget for home office either :/
