Got spoiled by a caring CD who actually advocated for my career, now I have a CD who is constantly underperforming and overuses the phrase “manage up” which I think is a simple way to say they’re aware of their own incompetence? Sorry for the rant. 😔
Conflict of interest.

I would really appreciate some suggestions for roles that I should be applying for. I recently started my MBA though I'm still having trouble landing interviews and think I should be applying for different roles than I have been. My MBA concentration is global business, my BS was in management with a minor in professional writing. I've been working in cosmetics mainly on the customer service side, currently senior support for the CS team and have experience doing CS on social media.

What’s the threshold of overkill for the number of people you think a candidate should meet with? Over 2.5 mos, I’ve met with 8 people, not including 6+ calls with the SVP in prep, checking in, etc. Role hasn’t changed and I was previously at the agency for two years, so know a number of people already. The hoops are starting to turn me off on a role that would be a great career opportunity.
My agency hasn’t promoted an ACD to CD in the several years I’ve been there, but has hired plenty of CDs from the outside. How did you CDs make the jump from ACD?

My team is now staffed with 3rd/4th year assocs but I’m still chosen for the biggest deals and I draft the loan docs which the partners wouldn’t ask the other assocs to draft (Cont below)
