Agency burnout is hitting me hard after 5 years. My client is the most demanding client I’ve worked with. I’m looking to go elsewhere but anything I apply to I either don’t hear anything or get an automated email that they went with someone else. I want to be in house so bad. I’m qualified and I’m awesome at my job. I know the job market isn’t fun right now. But man this sucks. Any resume tips or resume writers you recommend?

I’ve come to realize that burnout is inevitable for PM unless we take time off and leadership advocates for us. In a nutshell, we’re the custodians of the agency, we do a lot of work in background; get blamed when things go wrong and rarely get credit when things go well. They will praise account teams for the accomplishments and blame project management for everything - we rarely travel, have to fight to get information we need to do our job and knowing the compensation for account are underpaid. Since I keep getting offers for account director roles - I may go ahead and leave.

You should! Especially if they are targeting you!

Hi,

I've recently got an offer and accepted verbally for AWS. The recruiter said it takes 3 days to process an official offer letter. It has been delayed for a few days, and recruiter said he was chasing that for me.

So i receive a call about an interview with a big law firm in NYC that “decided to go with another candidate” just last night but this morning decides to interview me. Huh?
Secondly recruiter said that the hiring manager told her there were some typos on my resume. I didn’t find any blatant typos- I did find some capitalized words that probably shouldn’t be capitalized.
I say all this to say- is this interview a set up? (Continued in comments)

We interviewed a great candidate, extended a verbal offer and she accepted. We sent the written offer a few days ago but she hasn’t opened it or accepted (it’s expiring tomorrow). Have you ever had to follow up? How did you handle it? My company is small with no HR, so I have to handle the hiring myself.
