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

The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
