At what position is the earliest that I can make 100K in Chicago on the account side? Sup/Manager? Associate Director? Just a young person looking for goals and money to look forward to.

Either as an experienced Sup, or Associate Director/Director. Better chance of getting there faster if you make thoughtful and strategic moves at the right times and to the right agencies.

I’d say for the most part at AD, if you can sell yourself/negotiate well enough at a new place going for a sup/manager role MAYBE?

If you stay in ad you may be able to crack it at the Sup level in a bigger agency. I’ve head tbwa you can. Probably GAS or AD.

It took me until Account Director, 6 years total.

Is the hiring slowdown over? I contacted a few firms to inquire about lateral opportunities in late June/early July and was asked to check back in the fall due to hiring freezes.

After your first job, how relevant is GPA. For context, I went to a school that is very well known for grade deflation (Deloitte had a “suggested” minimum of 3.2 here) and I studied statistics, a particularly rough major at the school. Long story short, GPA was between a 2.9 and 3.0. This wasn’t due to slacking and I’ve done well at Deloitte so far with plenty of experience to speak to. Would my GPA still block me from certain firms, like any of the MBB firms or a Tier 2 consulting firm?
