All right, I'm done. People are literally dying in Texas due to climate change. Spending the rest of my life at an agency where I don't get to choose my destiny is done. I want to find a client side job working for a green energy company, an environmental organization, etc. I need an executive resume writer to help. Have any of you used resume writing services before? Most of the ones that I can find lean significantly junior. I'm nearly 20 years in - need someone focused on executives.

Does taking medical leave for 3 months adversely affect future exit opportunities? When I apply to other jobs, does HR check how much leave you took and see that as a red flag?
Has anyone else felt physically sick from stress/overwork? I’d been dizzy, with headaches and stomach pain for weeks, and had debilitating chest pain today (couldn’t sit up) Went to the doc last week and bloodwork is normal; been doing counseling but that still hasn’t helped.
We are here to guide clients: but this is not always the case when your client believes they are the target audience for their product. How do you convince them that they are not and trust the agency?

Are there any therapist that take insurance? I’m trying to jump on the band wagon but like damn it’s expensive af.
For Progressive car insurance, they offered to give me a discount if I used their Snapshot driving monitoring device for the policy period (half year). What is the highest score I can get? Is it A or A+? I remember this used to be only a 30 day evaluation, now it has become 6 months, wtf? I’m in NY state if that matters. I hardly drive my vehicles now and the rates are still about the same as pre pandemic. These thieves.
I’m trying to make the jump from agency > platform (not FB…more like Spotify or Twitter etc.). I work with reps at these places as part of my job, but technically their loyalty is to my clients (the ones spending $ on their platform), not to me, working at the client’s creative agency. So it feels weird asking them for a recommendation or referral, but that would obviously be easier than applying on the jobs site... How do I utilize my “network” without making things awkward?
Help! We think our 2.5 yo is dealing with asthma and doctors won’t seem to do much. He’s always sick/terrible cough and poor guy can’t get sleep and is out of school a lot. anyone experience this?

Was preserving your wedding bouquet worth it post ceremony? I’m trying to decide if I’d like to have mine preserved and put in a frame or in one of those clear boxes that can be made. I’m getting married on Saturday at our home in a super intimate ceremony. We cancelled the big celebration after already postponing once due to COVID. It would be my one item from the day besides pictures and my wedding band of course. It’s not cheap, so curious to hear thoughts. Recommendations are also welcome!
This time last year I knew I needed to stop drinking, but I couldn’t. This year, though, I’m putting my health first. Starting day 2 of sobriety and hope to keep it up. Thanks to this group for all the support and encouragement shown to those of us struggling with such powerful addictions.
Is there a standard rule in terms of how much you save vs. Spend out of your take home income? For long term financial health. About to become a father and thinking of renting a larger place, rent will increase by $500, other expenses will increase by $500 and ultimately I will save 60% of take home. Worried a little and wondering if it's still a good saving percentage.
Rag & Bone is taking 70% off a whole bunch of things online. The founder’s letter about this is very well done imo: https://www.rag-bone.com/covid-19-hub/
What exit opportunities exist at tech companies for someone in consulting with Change Management and HRT background?

New auditor here, I see most auditors get booked for 10- 12 hours on engagements during busy season. But heard everyone’s working 65 hours to 100 hours a week during that time. Does that mean almost everyone is eating their hours in big four and midsize firms ? If you’re assigned for 12 hours daily, Monday to Friday, but actually working 15 hours and weekends, do you book 12 hours Monday to Friday ? Or the actual hours you worked including weekends ?
I’m sorry if this sounds insensitive but does it look bad if one of my recommenders is laid off? I was about to ask for a rec but haven’t yet
Hi everyone! Hitting an all time rut with work motivation and burnout, with very long workdays (generally 7:30 am - 8 or 9 pm). Any tips that have helped anyone with this? Podcasts, books, songs or anything else that helps bring back the inspiration and drive? I am having a difficult time paying attention, being productive & just feeling overall detachment. Think there’s some low grade depression at play w/ the WFH situation & shorter/colder days, but I don’t have much control over my hours
How often do you procrastinate on the job and how often do you get in trouble for it? Feel like I’ve gotten worse with WFH…
Any juniors here at R/GA NY? Gonna be interviewing soon... What are your thoughts on the place? (Work, culture, work-life balance etc.)
￼ I completed a case study for a company about three weeks ago and they finally got back to me and said they wanted to move me to the next step which is presenting my case study. I have a week till that meeting. Would it be inappropriate for me to go back to my case study and tidy it up? I don’t think any of the main information is going to change but possibly change my headline or format of a slide. ￼￼￼￼￼
Dear sharks! Help me with online/ classroom MBA program that could be attended during weekends. YOE: 6.5 Role: Project Manager I don’t want to quit my job and pursue full time.
I am in a situation where my group is about to be laid off. I have not interviewed for 8 years and never in the US. I consider myself extremely talented in the tech field and have contributed to many well used libraries and frameworks but I can’t even get an interview anywhere I apply. Are there any resources to get feedback on what I’m doing wrong?
What are some questions I should ask to the head of litigation about the group during an interview? I’m blanking.
Is there anyone at the manager level or above that hasn't installed work email / phone software on their phone? I've never had a reason to use my phone for work because most of my time as a senior has been during wfh. I'd like to delay the inevitable for as long as possible and curious if anyone at the higher levels has somehow managed to avoid this.
