Hii! Has any of you been sending work for awards?
I see a lot of student competitions around but not many for young professionals.

I would love to work on a spec/real brief.
Also please feel free to suggest some of the ways you've been staying creative outside of your job.

Just a quick rant for myself. I have been out to my straight guy friends for so long and we all have very similar interests and in general are very close. I recently started hanging out with a group of gay guys and got interested in dating in general but most of the time, I feel like I don’t fit in and our interests are generally very different. While I find some of the guys I meet attractive, it never “clicks.” I get depressed sometimes and think I’ll just end up alone.

I have three years of experience in agency recruiting and HR. I’m currently making 47k as an HR Coordinator. I’m starting to feel bitter that I took a pay cut to transition to HR from agency recruiting so I put myself open to recruiters on LinkedIn and got a Sr Recruiter contract offer with a company that I’m familiar with for $38/hour. I don’t love the company’s culture so I’m going to keep looking but would it be worth leveraging the offer with my current org? I’ve only been there for 7 months

Anyone looking to add a senior-level Digital (or Brand) Strategist to your team — agency or brand side. Would love to connect.

Any advice on how many times is acceptable to email recruiters? I’ve been emailing about once a week in Austin hoping to get some response but still radio silence. Should I just reach out to creatives


Okay! So…
I receive a job offer and I accepted because it’s a corporate company plus great pay! $75K

My current company is trying to retain ($52K) and NOW they said would you stay if we match the pay and they are basically trying everything to make me stay.

I don’t know how to go about it from here. I’m having a “chat” over lunch with the director and they’re probably gonna ask me why/ what/ can we do anything but I just wanna leave. Like how do I make them understand politely and nicely?


Anyone looking for an ACD CW for full time or freelance?

Brand side opp: got word that a sports brand—1 of more visible/“spendy” sports/tech brands—looking for Senior/ACD-level & preferably female/BIPOC creatives (ie not male dude-bros).

Like many brands they’ve been fairly homogenized for too long & actively looking to change it vs. just talk about it. Which even as a male “dude bro”creative who’d LOVE to work there, I applaud.

So If u are/know someone great who’s looking brand-side, DM me & I can tell ya more & pass your info on


Chicago CWs, possible freelance gig starting next week. Mid-Sr level. Mostly social/digital work for well-known tech company. Dont know much more than that, only the messenger. DM info if interested
