Designer transitioning to creative. Have spec work to show conceptual thinking, a social strategy deck and style guide I made as a CW intern, and produced design work. Anyone in PDX, LA, NYC? Hire me.

I'd go all in on copywriting or art direction but not some weird combo of both. people won't know where to place you and you're rarely great at both. if you have a design background and enjoy that, seems like art direction makes more sense.

Thanks ACD1!

What job at you looking for? Designers are creative. You don’t want to be a designer or you’re hoping to land a designer job? Art Director? Graphic Design?

I value this input ACD2! I completed a CW internship and have a glowing recommendation from the ACD who hired me. I have MAD respect for copywriters and their skill set. I’m definitely not trying to put forth the ego that I could be amazing at either one.

The only time that you are able to do both in an early stage is at small shops. You can still do both but you're you to have to pave a lane that a few can manage.

Looking to plan a family resort getaway next spring. Will be first trip/legit vacation in two+ years by that point.

What do you consider reasonable cost for a ~4 day nice resort getaway (with airfare) for family of five + nanny? I know an Airbnb is cheaper but we’re looking to feel a little spoiled. My quick research is something like $5-10k… is that nuts for a four day vacation?

Exit immediately into industry to try for accounting manager title / senior accountant or sr fin analyst 4. Exit immediately to advisory senior at another big 4 firm

Seems like MBB is broader and I’m curious (also not assuming I could even get in, but I want to explore the option).
