Any funny Glow Ups? This person in my previous company/local office got fired as an associate and everyone talked about how awful she was & generally didn’t treat her well — later on she’s a director at one of their key accounts. Watch out who you treat like dirt.

I have been in the industry for ~ 20 years, career slowed down when I went part time to raise a family and care for aging parents and when I moved to Milwaukee, I took a demotion. I was part of Covid layoffs and have been applying for an Account Director role. When I looked on LinkedIn, the company has a lot of young people at VP level. How do I negotiate for that after the fact? What does VP mean at your company?

I’ve applied to over 40 jobs since I was laid off in March. Not one click to my portfolio, per analytics. With a family of four, we are being spread thin. Not only is the income desperately needed, but my creative soul needs a release. I would be happy to do typical Art Director work but I’m “over qualified” for that and am never taken seriously when applying for work below CD/ACD. If anyone needs or know of any company needing freelance work, large or small—I’d really appreciate the lead. 🙏

The worst part of working overtime right after the longest tax season of your life is your spouse getting pissed at you for working.

When your mother wants to have a condescending argument when I tell her that I’m not qualified for the “creative director” position she sent from craigslist.

Considering I’m a recently laid off junior, and she doesn’t seem to understand the ladder of career development. 🙄🙄🙄 Save me!
