Of course! We choose how MILLIONS of dollars are spent! Are you vetting small business or independent media owners. How about working with minority owned companies.

Hi - anyone on here have success with IUI? About to commence my first cycle and am just looking for inputs/things to keep in mind/positive thoughts.

Got my I140 in November 2021. Started looking for a job thinking that it’s going to take a while, but landed a decent offer pretty quickly that I am seriously considering. What are my options, considering I do not have the physical copy of my I140 yet, and the firm won’t hand it over until 6 months have passed at the very least. Waiting another 2months seems brutal

How are recruiters paid?

Does the attorney have to stay for X months for them to get paid? Or is their pay secured? Reason I ask is because I lateraled using a recruiter recently (more than half a year, less than a full year ago), but am not content with the new firm and I'm wondering if they have a conflicting incentive for me to stay or if there's no such conflict with reaching out to them and saying this new firm isn't the right fit.

Posting this here in hopes of media specific responses but all are welcome, what does anyone know about the media department at Weiden & Kennedy Portland? I was cold called as a good fit for a role there. We always hear about their creative work but like pretty much any agency we never hear about their media work. I’m in NYC so thoughts of the potential for upward mobility, the size of overall agency scene come to mind. Would it be hard to transition to smaller market after almost 20 years?
