Who teaches preschool?! Do you like it?
Moving from Chicago to western suburbs in a few months. Any recommendations for moving companies? Polite people who follow requests like wearing masks, removing shoes or wearing slip-ons when going into the new house, etc.
Bets on if this will be a hate crime or not ?
Recently had graduate offer at boutique strategy firm rescinded and unsure how to make the pivot into strategy consulting now. Any advice on next steps I should take or how I can make myself more appealing would be much appreciated!
The firm I work for is not closing for the hurricane. Staff were told to work from home or take PTO if they could not come in to the office (and the building is now closed until Friday). Is this normal?!
hi all! I'm starting my journey in VC as of next week, focusing particularly in LatAm ventures, although within a global fund. I'd love to connect with other investors as well!
I am getting a good opportunity in a mid level company, and a good package with my profile of interest, should I switch, or stay here?
Jet lagged. Period all screwy from changing time zones. Can I crawl under my desk, curl up in a ball and nap please?
Who’s firm is hiring at the recent college grad or associate level for it audit/risk management?
Anyone tried the online neural network class at fast.ai? Been brushing up my Python to give it a shot but was curious if others had tried.
Defeated. First few years of agency life were fine. In the past year things have been turbulent - one agency was full of management that would openly mock, and in current role, I haven't (cont'd)
Curiously, Pfizer and Moderna stock are down massively over the past couple months.
Why are they imploding and do you think the whistleblower case over data integrity (alleged fraud) will affect their audits in any way? How would you approach this from a risk assessment perspective? Are auditors responsible for looking into clinical trial data?
Just moved from small firm to big law—mid level litigator. Crickets the first two days while I awaited initial assignments. Not yet familiar with big firm life, so I thought I’d be careful and ask just two partners for work and see how it went. Since Saturday I’ve billed 10 hours a day. I definitely feel like saying my plate is full already, but will that look pathetic barely two weeks in?
Sometimes I get into a zone where I’m very lazy which makes me feel like a POS so I do nothing which only makes me feel like a bigger POS-how can I break this cycle ?
Someone requested I send them over my “image”. Does this mean headshot or….? Confused since it’s on my company profile

Is the Slack desktop application (on the Microsoft store) worth using? I only have one client using it, and the app doesn’t have great reviews—I wonder if I should stick with the browser.
What should someone do when they’re too old for the industry but feel as young as when they first started?
Boss of very small and getting smaller agency keeps skipping out on paying salaries. “Sorry everyone, we are waiting for clients to pay us...” How long would you put up with this?
Is CTM Connects legit?
Doesn’t everyone think they’re above average or are there people who actually think that they’re not as good as others? (Specifically in terms of advertising and for creatives)
Okay so for the longest time I thought that everyone thinks like me. (Bad mistake, I know). But a few posts on here have really made me think. So I’d love to know what everyone thinks.
I won my first couple of international awards and am negotiating my pay with a new agency. How much more % can I push for? Peers told me up to 20% but I’m not sure whether they took into account awards
I always thought LA was supposed to be easier and cheaper than NYC. It’s not, at all. And the people are generally passive aggressive af.
Anyone know of a campaign or execution that allowed printing of art through IG or IG stories? Is this possible or is it more of a swipe up to e commerce site only?
What's the ad scene like in Hong Kong? My family is from there originally so I would love to move and work there one day.
How would you rank the following awards/award shows from most to least coveted for a creative?
I hate how frequently I’m placed as a senior writer who’s subservient to an ACD AD instead of as a partner. Why am I submitting voice guidelines to a designer for review? 🤷🏻♂️
I should know this by now, but when talking to recruiters, how do you respond to “I want to hear about you...”. How far back in my career do I go? Do I mention what I am currently working on? How in depth do I go with these projects?
After seeing Dominoes latest commercial I’m convinced this industry is starting to be filled with a bunch of hacks who use anti-advertising advertising as a crutch for their own lack of creativity.
I’m always bored at work. Nothing feels like a challenge and every project that is supposed to be “exciting” is still extremely boring to me. And I always say I’d rather be busy than bored. I just can’t tell if I’m burnt out from WFH, need to find a new agency, or don’t like advertising as much as I thought I did. Anyone have any advice or ever feel this way?
Getting real disillusioned with agency life, and seriously considering making the jump client side about 5 years earlier than I planned to. Is there such a thing as making the move too early?
Good or bad experience working at Lippe Taylor ? Would love to know from a creative perspective. Tyia!
What do you guys use to host your portfolio?
Adobe portfolio seems to be the cheapest and easiest option, but I don’t love how limiting it is, design-wise. Wondering what your experiences have been with alternatives. And especially if you have little to no web experience (apart from customizing ur neopets page back in 2000/2001).
