Any rules of thumbs for how long to stay at an agency? Current agency is good with hopeful prospects. I'm learning, making, enjoying, and challenged. Just worried about staying in one place too long.

Stay as long as you’re happy. It’s hard to find.

As long as they respect you. Staying longer isn’t a bad thing. Jealous of you if that’s the case

Yeah homie if you found something solid and you feel happy, stick around for a bit, that's really hard to find.

If all of those things are true, why are you worried about staying there too long? Milk that shit until it runs dry. I’d be more worried if it’s too good to be true.

So many agencies suck. The good ones are dying off as the whole industry contracts. If you have a good gig, make yourself invaluable and stay there.

Haha I’m pretty sure the Fishbowl bylaws state that at least one person has to make every thread about harassment/race/misogyny. Way to go FCB 1

Staying longer at an agency looks good. It says you have loyalty. That you don’t just bounce for 5k or a title promotion. If you like a place stay. If you don’t leave. There is no golden rule for careers.

Rule of thumb is a misogynistic term.

Stay until you get an opportunity that’s truly better

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
