Ad copywriter who’s freelancing outside of agency world, who do I ask for a reference/review from when finishing up a project? Project leader (who I had minimal interaction with) or day-to-day contact who is lower ranking but actually worked with me beyond the initial interview? At an agency I’d go straight to the CD, but this is a consultancy that doesn’t have that sort of structure.

Who is your director manager in one or all projects? When I freelance outside of agency, I go to higher rank in Brand or Marketing for reference. But in my experience I worked closely with director level, and have built good relationships during work, so it would not be odd to ask at the end.

There are a bunch. It’s a fairly large project and I’ve been working floating across a number of different teams. I suppose I could ask the lead for each team, but I’m not sure if that would be weird.

What's the norm for consulting firms during a shutdown? Do people on non funded projects usually get furloughed or kept on? Asking because I've been at a bigger firm that kept everyone on during the last shutdown, but I'm at a much smaller company now that is going to furlough on a project by project basis (if your project is shutdown, you get furloughed). Just curious if this is commonplace among smaller firms/what the norm is for bigger ones as well? What's been your experience?
