Depends on need and performance. Can be a real challenge at times

Easier (but maybe not easy still) if it’s one of the main industries of the office you’ll be in. We had staff in a third tier Midwest office who wanted to do like Travel and Leisure and industries that were not part of our client base. If a city is mainly manufacturing and you hate that, don’t go with it

That said, surprised they’d be hiring for one industry at a staff level. They want you to designate 1-2 industries as your focus, but wasn’t aware they were hiring that way. Seems weird

Well It's through an internal referral. It's the FI practice so it's insurance, banking & AM. So from my understanding from interview with Sr Mgr, it's for that practice. My background is heavy in banking & FI, it makes sense that's the field they would prefer I specialize in.

Been in advertising for 12 yrs and at my agency for 4 in LA. I've been able to add to my book at current job. My chat with a big agency regarding a CD gig will likely result in an offer. The acct I'm interviewing for is more challenging, they have done a couple of award-winning work, but no long track record of it. Book pieces aren’t guaranteed. It's a promotion and a 40% salary jump. Isn't it time to start chasing a bit more money? My book is good, but no major awards. Am I making a mistake?
