Any creatives have experience moving from a small market to a big one (specifically NYC) and have any tips? I've done good work where I am, far exceeding my title in my smaller agency/market, but I'm not sure how to translate that into hireable cool-kid NYC job requirements.

What you said of “far exceeding my title” is perfect right there. In larger agencies/markets, it’s tough to get responsibilities without doing grunt work for years. Show situations where you led a team, won a pitch, or any other “couldn’t do it without you” moments. I’ve done that in interviews and that’s helped me move around in my career to better places/salaries.

I'm 20 weeks pregnant and am in excruciating pain (shooting abdominal pain, pain while clearing bowels, pain while urinating, pain while sitting standing laying walking etc). Saw the doctor and apparently I have 3 growing fibroids under my uterus pressing on my bladder and rectum. They had me on ibuprofen for two days, but I saw no relief. Has anyone else experienced this? How long did your pain last? Any at home remedies for constipation relief?

I’m 31 weeks pregnant so everything makes me super emotional right now. I just overheard a co-worker basically brag that by the time he gets home every night his kid (3 year old) is already asleep. The thought of that made me cry. I really don’t want to get home every night to my kid already sleeping. When do attorney-parents find time to actually be with their kids?!?

Advice please: I currently make $80k at a small firm in SoCal.

Benefits are the same but higher pay (cont.)

Help! I have a parent who is over-exaggerating and possibly putting words in her child’s mouth regarding issues at school. Today she contacted me regarding her child being “assaulted” at school. We’ve explained to her that we need the child to report these incidents to a teacher at school as soon as possible after it happens, but never does. Makes me wonder if she’s making things sound worse or if the child is telling stories to get her attention.

I wish more women creatives were amplified over men, considering all the inequities. Share women’s portfolios, to give more visibility, because we know there are many kickass women in advertising, bonus points if she/they are from underrepresented, or marginalized groups.
