I applied for Miami Ad School NYC but to be honest, I’m not overly-impressed with the books that I see on the recent grads page. Conversely, the books I’m seeing from Creative Circus grads are insanel…
The Creative Circus
How do I answer the salary question in a recruiter phone screen? What’s a reasonable mid-level salary (raise) to ask for? A slight bump? Highball? Should I mention (a higher # of) what I make now?

“Mindfulness is the awareness that arises from paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, non judgmentally” -Jon Kabat-Zinn
We have sales people in Canada and the US, the Canadians make 150K CAD and down here it’s 150K USD, the Canadians argue they should be making 30% more than the US colleagues to be equal bc of the exchange! I explain the salary is dependent on the market data for them in Canada, WHERE THEY LIVE, and you can’t compare it to the US employees and the market data down here. Overall they are both in the 75th% for total comp. for their industry. Am I wrong?
PSA: if you enter the conference call number and code like “555-555-555;12345#” you will greatly improve the mental health of ANYONE dialing in from mobile. It automatically enters the code for you.
Recently got a raise (putting me at 68k). Turned down an offer for 75k to stick it out and company said they can’t match. Management sup was laid off. Account director just quit. Need more $$. ADVICE?
Which would you rather have at your agency? 1) Project manager who is tough but sometimes hurts feelings 2) Project manager who everyone likes but is conflict-averse and lax
Do you partially base your performance on the strength of your relationship with your client? Mine is a sexist, cold bully who I can no longer stomach after 2 years. But asking off feels like failure
Serious question: has W+K ever had layoffs in the last decade or so? I don’t think I’ve ever heard about it if so.
What should i wear to an interview at Edelman?
Hey Creatives, the more you climb up the agency ladder the more you become more like me, account.
Goldmans Sachs pumping money into creative agencies? Since when? http://www.businessinsider.com/goldman-sachs-investing-95-million-in-ad-firm-mdc-partners-2017-2
Need more friends in the industry. None of my friends work in advertising so when it comes to talking about work, no one really cares/gets it
Is it me or does this Payless stunt come across at completely inauthentic, and also a rip off of like ten other ideas?
Thoughts on Allscope?
My biggest competition work wise have all been women. So many know how to navigate through all this horseshit and deliver LeBron level performances.. amazes me that so many of you are still underpaid.
Thoughts on hugging co-workers? Never in a work setting, but as a part of every hello at a firm connectivity event. I’m a female, but don’t feel weird about it. Should I?
How many days of PTO do you all actually take a year? I'd say I probably average around 8 days (not including holidays)
Worthwhile getting the AWS cloud practitioner cert? (Will there be a return financially in ease of finding job or higher salary)?
Any unemployment insurance benefit attorneys out there? I’d like to add this niche to my solo employment law practice but the billable fees are really low. How are attorneys profitable in this area? How do you bill your time? Is defense more profitable than claimant? Thanks.
Should I expect a promotion to essentially be in writing? This entire "promotion" seems to be theoretic over the last 6 months. I was about to quit yesterday and now the position I didn't think I was going to get is starting to come around;timing couldn't be crazier. Should I give them an ultimatum? I just received an insane offer but I want to stay.

I just completed a writing test and am waiting on a 2nd interview. It’s been a week since I’ve heard from my recruiter about the interview. Will recruiters ever go back on their word?
EY Chicago holiday party is lit
Staff two here and just got my new salary. Base is a measly $2,700 more than incoming hires. When you take into account their bonus our peer group makes 8.1% less than people with zero experience. How does this make any sense. Did leadership think this was a good idea? I’ve been reading a lot on fishbowl about managers making less than incoming MBAs. How is that fair? Think this was a really poor job of executing salary adjustments. Am I wrong or does there need to be a change soon
To Europeans that moved to the US: why do you want to live in that country aside from a better salary?
~15 people were laid off from our company today. Keep your eyes open for good talent up for hire.

United high-flyers: Got 40 pluspoints to trade?
Do you approach interviewing the same as you do dating? Basically, if they liked you they would make an effort to contact you and not vice versa? Had an interview on Friday and still haven’t heard anything back. Company was looking to hire someone immediately. Wondering if I should reach out or assume they’re not interested.
