Advertising

At bigger agencies, I’m seeing that AD roles are asking for 5+ yrs experience while Designer roles require more like 3+. I’m an AD with 3 yrs experience. Would it be foolish to accept a Designer role?

You’d be making less money as a designer, and usually after a few years as a designer you end up becoming an AD. I’d wait and try to get promoted to Senior AD instead.

Are you a designer or an art director? They are 2 different jobs.

Depending on the place. An advertising AD is different than a design art director. Just how a production designer is different from a design designer. It’s what a place values.

In graphic design land you start as a designer and work to get to an art director. In ad land you start as a junior art director.

Do Designer roles lead into AD roles at these more prominent agencies?

@vp art direction is a discipline, and it doesn’t mean director level. I feel like you should know that?

Deloitte laid off CM analyst and consultants .. tech adoption / digital enablement. A recruiter contacted me about a role that states a plus for knowing Deloitte CM method and Change Scout. It is a contractor to hire position. 100% remote now and possibly future. Company is Cleveland, OH. DM me and I can send you the deets. Rate is too low for me.

What is the best message when informing the rest of your company that someone was terminated? The backstory is that this employees performance has been struggling, he was put on a PIP, and in recent convos, he’s said that his role isn’t for him. As he is getting terminated due to performance, it feels more amicable now that he knows it’s not working and that he needs to find a new job. Thoughts on message to the rest of the company?

What is the exit strategy? 3. What is the product (very vague idea after phone screen) 4. How will my boss help my growth? Very early in the process as you can see. Key concern is that I’d report to a Senior PM who has 1 year of consulting exp. and 1 year at the company. I’m approaching 1 year of consulting exp.

Hi everyone! Has anyone else’s number of “team meetings” with leadership increased (i.e.: 1x a week to 3x a week via zoom)? If so, do you feel the need to still have multiple meetings per week just to “connect/check in”? How are you keeping them meaningful and intentional? Are team members engaged? When this WFH first started, I feel it made a lot more sense. But now people are rocking and rolling. I’d love to hear about others’ team meeting experiences these days! Be well.
