Hi y’all, I am a Design Strategist at a Minneapolis AD agency. I have 3 years of Ad experience, switched from corporate environment. If this year taught me anything it’s not to be surprised. After George Floyd I can’t help but judge my environment and how senseless and apathetic non-BIPOC people can be to our realities. A whole pandemic going on, a few days away from the election and I got laid off. I’m a Black woman with a strong work ethic, if anyone has career advice please share. Thank you!

Would you be willing to take a demotion for more money?

My boss keeps saying cryptic things that has me feeling like I am at risk of being laid off. Funny enough, today a friend reached out to me about an in-house position at her company. It seems ok and there is a chance I would be able to get a $5k or so raise in pay, but the position would be a huge title demotion for me from a mid-level strategist with 6 yrs experience to more entry-level coordinator role. Is it worth it?

My boss and mentor was recently laid off with the cuts made last week, and I have a gut feeling I’m next. I’ve tried my best to stay positive with my current agency, but it’s time to move on. I need a change of pace. Understand just about every shop is on a hiring freeze, but anyone need a strategist?

Say you got laid off as a junior strategist and, to make ends meet, you took a job in project management. How would you get more strategy experience? What do you do if you’re in between skill levels?

I’ve been laid off due to lost business. Struggling to find junior strategist positions and agencies that hire at that level, not many do. Should I stick with what I enjoy or consider account?

Digital strategist with tons of experience soup-to-nuts. At this for more years than I care to think. Any tips on finding opportunities client side? It’s only a matter of time before layoffs start

Looking at all of the layoffs, promotions, and lack of promotions at Deloitte...it really makes me wonder what the YE process is truly like. We have people laid off get immediately hired to Apple, questionable people getting promotions, and verifiably high performers not get their target promos. There has to be something that I am not seeing? Thoughts???

Just joined a new consulting firm (after being laid off from the last one due to “poor performance”), and I’m being staffed conditionally on my first project. Manager has so far has given me pretty light / easy PMO work and asked me to make a few slides here and there, but generally it’s work below the level I was hired for. I’m in the post-MBA role, so want to make sure I’m meeting those expectations early on. Any advice on how to go about this and get more responsibility?

How do you take each day as it comes? I don’t have a personal life, no hobbies, or family I’m close to. My life revolves around work. These days I’ve been feeling very anxious, and almost panicky before every meeting. The fear of being laid off (if not this cycle, then one of the upcoming ones) is always looming large. I know I can perform a lot better if I feel like I have nothing to lose. I can’t seem to get there though.
