I worked for Noel at Fitzco, not VMLY&R, but I have a couple guesses. Firstly, he's a bit of a serial jumper. He founded not one, but two agencies in SA that he subsequently left. Second, VMLY&R was too big for him to have the kind of impact in the work he wanted. He used to like sitting next to the creative department, dropping in on reviews, and getting into the nitty-gritty of things. But that was with a creative department of 15 and 2 CD teams. I'd imagine his job at VMLY&R didn't really allow him to do that.

Hello Sharks,

I am a Mechanical Engineer with ~5 years of experience in Aerospace Industry. Graduated in Tier 2 city college.

I want to give a try to Canadian opportunities and it would be really helpful if someone gives me initial guidance.

I am aware of the process but would need some detailed guidance, probably from someone who has migrated from India to Canada with a Tier 2 city college degree.

Thank you in advance.

529 Plan VERSUS Prepaid

We live in Florida and currently have a Freshman in High School and a 16 month old. We hear from our friends and family with college bound children "I wish we would have done Florida PrePaid." After obviously ignoring this for years, we are finally trying to do it before "it's too late" for both children.

Does anyone have recommendations on which plan to go with for each child? I once did the pros and cons on a whiteboard and it seemed like 529 was better.

Also, will I have a target on my back if I stay and they knew I was going to leave? I am also just grateful to have options and want to acknowledge that.
