I’ve used it twice and both times was chatting with people looking to break-in to advertising. I enjoyed both calls, but that ain’t exact what I’m looking for out of the thing, seeing as how I’m really not trying to work at any ad agency for the foreseeable future.

I myself am not sure why I have heard creatives recommending it. When I finally got to the “front of the line” and was able to be matched, it felt like a throwback to when I knew nothing about the industry and would attend networking events and the like promoting startups and BNI meetups.

I agree with ACD1 though. I’d just shoot the shit. You never know. But afterwards OP, you can do exactly what I did: change your settings to not wanting to be matched by anyone and then forget about it.

Yeah it’s very bizarre how they set you up with someone just by interests. I’m not looking to match up with random people....lol it’d make much more sense if you could choose exactly which titles you’d like to talk to. But yeah I think I’m also just going to pretend it doesn’t exist and change my settings -_-

To clarify, the person I’m set up to meet is a festival producer and I’m only looking to talk to people in advertising.

It's not like this is your last ever lunch on this earth. Could it really hurt to just to shoot the shit with this person for 20minutes? Never know, you might learn something. Or make a connection that could come in handy down the road.

Hmmm I DO like festivals (perhaps I could snag a future free pass??)

I informally accepted a position at Silicon Valley Bank, after attempting to negotiate a higher wage, the recruiter advised this wasn't a possibility. However, while completing the background check I received another offer from Wells Fargo. The SVB position most aligns with my career objectives but the Wells Fargo position pays more (13k difference). I want the SVB position however I would like to leverage the Wells Fargo position to negotiate a higher salary. Any suggestions on strategy?

Just signed a job offer in London (currently in the US). Would love your help with some questions re: the Skilled Worker Visa (formerly known as Tier 2 Gen.)
1) Is getting your employer to apply for a 5-year visa generally a battle? Do they have any incentive to sponsor a shorter duration visa? 2) How hard is it to switch employers while on this visa? 3) is there still a rule that you need to start your job within 30 days of the visa being issued? (old rules like the RLMT got scrapped in Dec'20)

To the copywriters & art directors out there.
I’ve been working with my partner for over a year and feel like it’s time to part ways. They are fantastic with execution, but I find myself carrying all the work weight outside of design.

If you were a junior creative with some experiences in big network agencies, what would you choose between these two :

A - Big network agency, working only on one account but doing potentially award winning work. Very ambitious and talented team.

B - New unknown agency with a small network backup but several accounts, competing for new clients and the will to win awards too. Two creative teams for now but lots of ambition and possibly more growth and potential to evolve as a junior creative.
