Starting my counseling career on Tuesday and I’m scared to fail. What if I say something stupid and hurt my clients and make it worse? This is a second career for me so is hard to be older and a novice. I know it’s not about me and that I will truly care so I keep reminding myself of that. Any thoughts from others new to the field or advice from more experienced practitioners?

Told the partner I work for today that I was overwhelmed with my workload and asked if he had any strategies for managing it. His advice was to start thinking of a workweek as 7 days rather than 5 because that way, you’re less stressed Mon-Fri. Lolololol biglaw is the pits.

Question here - been at a new job for a bit and have discovered that the culture is extremely misogynistic. It’s been 6 months and I have had to go to HR twice. I want to leave, but don’t want to seem like a jumper - but then again, what does it say about a future employer if they judge me for leaving a bad work environment? Feeling conflicted. Thoughts ?

I currently work at a very large PR agency and am trying to move up into an AD role. Any advice here, other than talking to my manager?
I’ve been a designer for just over a year, having had strategy, social media, and UX experience prior from both inside and outside the industry. I’m looking for career advice 🥺 What’s next for me if I don’t want to be a “designer” anymore? Looking for something that allows conceptual thinking and creativity to improve social equity. I know it’s a dream, but just want to broaden my horizons and see what’s out there.

I’m starting to get staffed in more CD-level roles and floundering…I need creative director bootcamp. I don’t know how to ask the right questions, develop a creative process, structure a team, or even trust my own judgement on creative anymore. I’ve learned a bit from other CDs but they tend to be so high-level their skillsets aren’t as applicable since I still get in the weeds as an ACD. How can I learn this stuff without asking my manager for help every time I have to lead a team?

Gen X (and older) creatives have a harder time swallowing the “account person as ECD” dynamic because the roles used to be: creatives make the work. Account team sells the work the creatives make.

My partner has zero comprehension skills. Never knows what’s going on. Never leaves a meeting understanding what happened. Can’t understand feedback so he can’t implement it. What do I do about this?!
Got asked to do a test project as part of the interview process. I was told that they’d pay for my time, ok cool. Love that they respect our time. However when I saw the task, it was raising all the red flags (copywriting and designing a collateral piece for their product as well as a set of social ads for two different target audiences for their brand). I decided to do them anyways because I really need a job right now. Presented the designs to them, the liked it, asked for pdf. A week later….
