Curious about people’s opinions on the new age of job hunting. Seems to me a lot of older people are complaining about the “young kids@ jumping ship after a year or two. Yet at the same time, (CONT)

don’t work to help those people get promotions, bonuses, cost of living wages, etc. Getting a new opportunity in this LinkedIn era is not the challenge it used to be. How can we expect people to stay at a place where they don’t get a single penny more until they get promoted in 1-4 years (and then only a typical 3-5% bump), when they can literally make 20-50k jumping roles? Cause let me tell you, all of the good, young talent bails, and I can’t come up with a good argument for staying. Is it time for the agency model to get with the times? Or are people just ungrateful?

Theres a lot in there, but the way I see it:

-Advertising has always been a place where people jump around. Two years would be a totally normal tenure, even long for most jobs.

-The complaint about “kids today” that Ive seen is that they expect promotions and raises and lofty titles and praise early and often. And, like, “is two months too soon to leave a job if its not inspiring you every day?”

-It is true that raises dont happen in todays penny-pinching ad business as much as they used to, and leaving is the best way to get a raise.

-“Promoted in 1-4 years” is a comically huge range. You shouldnt expect to be promoted in one year. That is fast. But four years, or course you should, and most people (even in the ooolllld daaaaays) dont stay 4 years anyway.

So yes people (agencies and 23-yr-old “Senior Social Strategists” alike) are ungrateful. But if by “getting with the times” you mean giving out bonuses and titles every four months to bribe people into staying—agencies are having enough trouble trying to stay open without worrying if Brayden or Maude have enough for a VIP tent at Coachella. Young folks have to realize the mundane realities of a job too.

@ACD1 Right, and I don’t assume Gen Xers or even boomers look for raises to pay for country club memberships and oversized SUVs or whatever.

Bust a move then. If you’re good enough, you can come back and ask for 2x the money. Play the game. All us old people have been playing this “new” game for years now. Baby boomers are maybe the only ones who got to stay in their jobs long term. Gen X invented freelancing or what kids today call the gig economy. Lol. This whole post kills me. 🤣😂🤣
