I’m a recent grad & began my first career as a marketing coordinator. It’s been quite frustrating to say the least. The company doesn’t understand the purpose of marketing, & recently hopped into the digital world - many of which don’t find it valuable. On the other hand, my manager assigns me lots of copy projects to do & either doesn’t give me informational feedback or completely disregards my work. Before I was hired, she knew exactly how my writing style was like but doesn’t use it. Help! :(

An agency I contacted a year ago, after I was laid off in the pandemic, finally gets in touch with a team opening on a very tough account. If I waited around that long for them I’d have defaulted on my mortgage, lost my work visa and been kicked out of the country by now. I’ve been freelancing on way more interesting stuff but decide to do the interview and find out more. The first question the CCO asks me and my partner, “So why do you want this job?” 🙄
Name the Agency you’ve worked at you wish had never left. Include the location if there is more than one.
Another salesman told a client their ad campaign would be ready next week. Today our supervisor told me to help him, but he has hardly even started the work. Is there any way for me to point this out without feeling like a jerk
Currently helping to sell in a “break up” idea (it’s time to break up with your old [product/service] and to see what else is out there) for what feels like the 5th or 6th time in my career.
It’s not a bad idea, just feels very overused.
What are the most overused idea structures you’ve seen in your career?
If I want to work abroad, is it better it to:
A.) Join a not-so-good agency and suck it up for the first 1-2 years then join a good one after? Or
B.) Pursue a great agency even if it means trying for X months?
Just saw on LinkedIn that one of NYC's worst recruiters got a huge promotion and a new job at a hot agency. How do people fail upwards? I guess their job really IS ignoring emails....
For traditional pitching, any low tier outlet recommendations that will accept anything?
Hi all! I work in digital marketing / organic social. For those in organic social what platform do you use for scheduling posts, analytics, UGC, managing influencers etc? We currently use bizzare voice/curalate. I work for a national retail brand so we are posting 2x a day with tons of UGC and in house content. Your thoughts and opinion are appreciated with all platforms! :)
Unrelated to advertising but I want to see what people think about this. I believe that a lot of the terrible and inefficient products/industries (think plastic packaging, oil companies, and, probably most relevant and equally most terrible, guns) are about staying relevant at all costs, even if it means stopping progress, sacrificing the earth, and killing children. And it’s not even out of complete greed, but more allowing people to keep their professions and not having to uproot their lives
I’m feeling so incredibly undervalued at my job. I’m coming up on a year here and am somehow being trusted less/given less opportunities than when I began. I’ve done a lot of self examining and I can’t for the life of me figure out what I could have done to spark this, and when I’ve tried to advocate for myself and talk to management they placate me or tell me I’m “just not there yet” with little constructive criticism. I’m exhausted, demeaned, and feeling hopeless. Is this common? Should I go?

My sister is in final year of surgical residency and crazy busy. I respect her for pushing through this tough journey, but I am really worried about her. She hasn't been eating well, sleeping well or really doing much self care. I got her food, snacks etc delivered at her hospital (where she is practically living) and also offered to get her a massage or something more like self care, which she refused. The only thing she says help is spending time with my toddler which is not exactly relaxing!
