I did it years ago — about 2.5 years into my career. Best move I’ve ever made. And the knowledge you will bring to the creative process from a media standpoint will make you very marketable talent for idea-led creative agencies who truly strive for “creative media” thinking. I’ve been blown away by the opportunity for better understanding amongst creative shops about media strategies, realities, and nuances. Go! Do! And then come work for me. :)

Should you include a cover letter in your application to Google? Position says cover letter is optional (“we think your work speaks for itself, so there’s no need to write a cover letter”) but don’t know if I should include one anyway.

I unexpectedly met the guy I plan to marry but since us meeting was unexpected I haven't gotten a chance to basically sleep around the way I'd like to before settling down forever.

It’s absolutely contrarian that this show up on a job application. If we are trying to get away from labeling people, then let’s get away from labeling people. Especially when it goes into very personal specifics. What’s next: Out of 50 shades of gray, which number are you? Or: If gay, please specify bottom or top. (Let’s say I’m versatile, which do I choose!?) Oh, methinks I’ll just stay unemployed then.

I love the holding company that I am currently at, but absolutely hate the account I am on. I would love to stay within the company but need to get off this account ASAP. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to go about transferring teams? I’ve had a few 1:1s with my boss voicing my concerns and that I’m not happy, but I’m at my tipping point. I’ve also looped our staffing director and was asked to give it a month or two. It’s been 3 weeks and I’m just as miserable. Any advice would be great.
