Accounts friends, what is your advice to AE transitioning into AS role? Just accepted the job and my imposter syndrome is overpowering my life. Please share your tips.

1. You got hired because you were probably doing many of the AS responsibilities at your old job already, just without the title. You got this. 2. When you leave your comfort zone and move into growth and risk zones, it’s inherently uncomfortable. The critic in your head may appear to get louder, but there’s no truth to back it up. Before you start your new job, revisit old emails or performance reports or convos where you were praised, and write down some of those great things. Use that as an antidote when you get a little stuck. 3. No one will expect you to hit the ground running day one. Listen, learn, and be vocal with your new manager about setting expectations. Be vulnerable and ask questions. But also trust your instincts. Good luck!!

Tell us what you’re struggling with and where you worry you’re not measuring up? Are there any external indicators that your worries are grounded in reality vs anxiety?

helpful

I think it’s mostly anxiety that people won’t like me plus a worry that I don’t have enough managing experience. I have couched ACs before but not consistently, more like on a project by project basis.

In the same boat! You’re not alone. We got this!!

Hi folks! I’m currently a PM intern at a big Chicago agency but I’m looking to transfer into strategy. I don’t think I will be getting an offer from my current agency as it seems they are focusing on hiring more senior level management. Is anyone hiring or does anyone have any leads/ someone who could refer me for a junior position? It would be much appreciated as a fresh grad. Thanks!! 🤠

All of the interviews leading up to the offer was great, but then red flags started popping up making me feel very uneasy joining this company. Have you ever denied an offer because of HR??
