Anybody hiring for data analytics positions? I just need a first round interview. I am a decent candidate, my last 5 interviews were EY, McK, EY, McK and GS (last round, 1st round, last round, 2nd round, 1st round).

Was just offered over a $100k pay bump and Creative Director title. The catch is, it’s at a pharma agency overseeing DTC & HCP work. Is going to healthcare as a CD career suicide like it was years ago? @
