I once worked at a unicorn of an agency. (In Minneapolis) And I’m wondering if there are any other like it out there. - The agency was creatively led - Most people were gone at 5:30 everyday - Pitches were not crazy—I worked about 4 weekends in 4 years - They asked what I wanted to work on, & whether I had time for projects - Great work—campaigns won awards like Cannes, One Show, CA - In a town of world-class agencies (Fallon, Carmichael Lynch) it was the shop where creatives wanted to work.

Looking for a startup that can use brand/digital/social/content strategy help working remotely. I am a hardworking, roll-up-my-sleeves kind of strategist with 20 years experience. People tell me I am an ideal combo of analytical and intuitive. Anything leads would be greatly appreciated.
Looking for advice on project management software or tools for HR consulting. Our firm doesn’t have anything that is standard or used at all, and while some of us are starting to venture into using Microsoft Teams, I feel like there are so many tools out there and we could be doing things way more efficiently. We work in small client teams (1-3 team members per client usually) and it’s a mix of strategy, tactical, and outsourced HR work. Any suggestions?

Hey guys! Our teammate is going through a pretty tough time, I wasn’t sure if this would be appropriate to post, but seeing as though this is a sales group, and my man Braxton is a sales beast... I thought I could try posting and apologize later. If you can give please do, if you can share please, if you can pray please, please do. We’re so close to getting his expenses covered, and after all he’s done to show up to our team.. I’m trying to show up to him in my fullest capacity. Thank you!!

Just got rejected from my 7th role with FAANG while all my friends around me are getting offers left and right. Although I feel like career is going through sh*t, I am still so lucky.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
