BIPOC who started working in healthcare advertising and eventually were able to leave, how’d you do it? My spec book gets me interviews for junior and mid copywriter positions, but when they ask me what kind of work I’m doing at my current agency, the whole conversation goes south. They either become immediately disinterested, or beam up and suddenly the interview is only about an open pharma role, which is more frustrating because if I want to stay in health I’d go for copy supervisor roles.

When I left pharma, I went to an agency that did a lot of long copy like websites and brochures. Some of the work was even B2B so I framed my pharma experience around my ability to distill complex information. If you can talk less about the projects and more about the skills you’ve gained in pharma and how they can benefit the team you’re interviewing with, it might help keep the conversation on track. I’ve found it also helps to interview with CDs who’ve worked in pharma themselves. Not always possible but they tend to understand your previous work experience and how to make the most of your skill set.

9 years in and I am finding my work performance has been declining for about a year now, and especially the last few months. I am taking longer to complete tasks, making more mistakes, and having so much more trouble focusing and staying on task. Have been WFH since March 2020, not seeing anyone outside of my immediate family and generally more anxious than usual, so I’m wondering if this is all mental health related. Can anyone relate? Any advice?
