Are there jobs in advertising (or out for that matter) where taking vacation time doesn't feel bad?

Just take your time dude - if you feel bad that's on you. you gotta stop worrying too much about what people think of your own personal needs and boundaries, because they're gonna do what's best for themselves and frankly not care about what you think. Don't play second fiddle to your own life, especially not over crap like advertising.

This used to be me. I totally get it. There's a lot of pressure when there's a ton of work to be done, but you don't want to risk having severe burnout. Take the time you need.

Received an invite for a superday very quickly after applying to Goldman. Recruiter never sent me the zoom password and then the password failed to work so everything started a full 15 minutes late. Interviews went great including a “they’ll definitely be a second round” but then I received the rejection email the next day. Do we think the tech issues played into that significantly or just my interview not stacking up to other candidates?
