If you stay a reasonable amount of time at the second firm you will be fine. Too many rapid switches gets hard to explain

OP - this is a “gotta put me first” business. As long as you stay at the new company for 2 years or more the “short term” blemish from your first company will be dismissed by your third employer. Also, this is an incestuous business and we steal from each other constantly. Hopping when you are young makes sense as it gives you immediate bump and also new ways to look at things. Just don’t do it TOO frequently. You need time to learn and grow and take what you learned to your new employer so you are actually worth the bump

Yes of course. Instant red flag as a hiring manager. Don't send me your resume

I want to do this. Was it not weird explaining to the firm you interviewed at why you didn’t even make it a full year?

K1 what makes it an instant red flag?

This second firm actually reached out to me about being interested. Promo to senior and significant raise. I would definitely stay there a while as promo to manager wouldn’t be for another 3 for years minimum after that

I feel same way lol

Doesn't matter

^I second that

How do you deal with toxic Asians with a superiority complex that constantly "other" and insult you as "white"?

I'm definitely 2nd Gen/ABC, so not the most culturally Asian. That being said, still celebrate key holidays so it's annoying and borderline bigoted when some tells me I'm "not Asian" and "white." My parents chose to raise me more American so I fit in, so to be insulted over something I didn't "choose" gets annoying.

Thoughts on pursuing a new role at another agency when you might be on the verge of being promoted into the same role at your current one? I wasn’t really looking but a former coworker mentioned my name at the potential new agency for a Copywriter position (currently Associate CW). I’ve been at this level for over a year and feel like the promotion is on the horizon, so I’m not sure if it’s worth making the move now if the other agency’s offer is equivalent

I was promoted early this year from an assistant “hourly” role to a managerial “salary excempt” role, but my old job hasn’t been replaced and it’s been 5 months.

And I find myself constantly working overtime and not getting paid fairly, even with the pay raise I got when I was promoted. I want to send my employer an email saying they’re in violation of FLSA.
