I should add, my dilemma is I interviewed with another place last week on the same day and they have already requested a second interview for this week. I’d much rather go to the other shop and I’m trying to see if there is still interest from them before this place offers me something.

I’ve been at my current agency for a few years now, it was my first job out of college. I’ve never been truly happy here but in the past few weeks I’ve been really miserable. My biggest issue is that what I do now is so niche that while I’m doing a good job, it hasn’t prepared me to work anywhere else. I’m always looking for new jobs but worry about losing the stability of what I have, however I know the longer I stay the less likely I’ll be to find something else.

I’m sure people here have been in a situation where they were looking for another job while they were pitching some big ideas with their current agency. These are ideas you’d be proud to have in your book.

If one of these ideas was sold and you started getting offers from other places, what did you do? Did you stick around and see the work through or did you accept the offer and ask to be credited to some degree? Did you regret your decision or was there anything you wish you did differently?
