What can I do to get hired at my agency? Ive been an intern for almost 9 months already and it seems like all I do is resize banners. I know I could leave but it is my dream agency and CONT.
I was laid off in April when there was just email and phones. Cut to five months later and I’m working again. Yay. But suddenly it’s all Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides, Sheets. Email is dead. And phones are only for Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides and Sheets. It feels like I woke up from a coma in a shitty version of the future and everyone else is fine with it. How did anyone adjust to this?
If I'm expected to take a Zoom call during my lunch hour, I'm eating on camera. Also, who cares if my lemonade happens to have a salt rim - let's just focus on the work.

Perks of big agency vs small shop?
Hi Fishbowl Getting back out on the job market has been tricky and many job applicants get tons of rejection letters back. So I thought of tool that could help turn lemons into lemonade. Drumroll… Rejection Letter Jackpot! https://rejectionletterjackpot.com/ It is a fun tool that could transform job rejection letters into $$; turning misfortune into a (literal) fortune. Hopefully you'll have no one to share this tool with, but if you do, help them turn their luck around!
Wish I worked at Havas, mainly to get access that sweet list of current Chicago recruiters. And by mainly, I mean strictly.
Disclaimer, I’ve been supporting Joyce Elliott. However, I am pleasantly surprised by the quality of her new TV spot. It’s actually so good for a political ad, hell, any ad. Really nice storytelling and visuals. Check it out! (And support Black women in flippable states) https://youtu.be/CIiRVifs_NQ
How do you ask your manager to be a reference for a new job? Or should you not ask at all
Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls

Back in the day, I did my own PR, sales & marketing for whatever business idea I was running with at the time. What’s a good remote sales opportunity I can do anywhere in the world that won’t be painful or too high touch? Where I can use my social & business skills (markets, law, cloud, publishing, media, logistics, algos, social media, books, ebooks, design, podcasting, marketing, press release writing, voiceover, journalism) to earn a few extra shillings?

I’ve been working in the HR space and am interested in pursuing an MBA to transition into Human Capital consulting/ Change management/ Talent technology and analytics. I’ve been seeing a few T30 schools that have a focus in those areas including Vanderbilt, Rice, BYU etc. Would it be better to pursue an MBA program highly ranked in that concentration area or to try to get into a school ranked higher overall? Thanks!
Does anyone else find it difficult to ask for time off? I haven’t taken a “vacation day” since February, billed 185+ hour months consistently through the pandemic (exceeded hours for 2020 bonus eligibility), and am feeling pretty burnt out. It’s hard because other associates in my department haven’t really taken any time off either (or it has been a day or two sporadically). Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.

I graduated with my bachelor's in HRM and I'm wondering if there are any certifications or trainings I could do before I lock down on the SHRM-CP.

I had a baby right before covid started and all of 2020 was spent struggling tremendously. I wore myself out and stretched myself out too thin . Now when I meet other moms, I spew out negatives about the entire motherhood experience. i can’t be a doting calm mother (I do love my kid). It makes me uncomfortable that I do this. I tried therapy and that didn’t help either.
