NYC Rental Application Denied without a reason
Hey, my friend and I were denied an apartment due to “the owner needs to put his personal client in that apartment”. We meet all the criteria. I was wondering if this is legal at all? Thank you in advance.

I thought we were supposed to charge the hours that we actually spend on work? I had a Sr Mgr tell me to review my project hours and only charge what “added value” to the project. This is going to hurt my utilization, but I also don’t want to get in trouble for lying on my timesheet. What do I do?

If I’m having a great day full of positivity and excellent collaboration and client interactions, and then some random person I have to interact with is very rude to me eg a handyman, landlord, cash register worker, etc— how do I prevent this from ruining my day?
Looking for opportunities to work in my field eventually. I’m almost certified in project management through Google. Since I was previously trained in project management, I’m doing sometimes a week or 2 weeks worth of google coursework in one evening. I have used project management tools to improve processes and business outcomes ($$) in my jobs. And I have worked to teach others these principles to improve efficiency.
Partners: How would you recommend staff to respond to this type of behavior? If you had a client say something like this to your staff, whether direct comment on their sexuality, or generally, wwyd?

Hi All! I’m trying to expand my knowledge in areas such as Social, Programmatic, Agile Project Management, and Change Management. Does anyone have any recommended certification programs or in-depth platform deep-dive courses they found helpful? I already have a good foundational knowledge but looking for something that goes beyond the surface.
Thoughts on sending/receiving handwritten markups to opposing counsel? Especially when borderline illegible? Every time I receive one of these I can’t help but think the attorney is lazy and rude. My client should not have to pay for me to decipher your writing.
Potential client owns an e-commerce website selling graphic design posters (think college type posters) submitted by a freelance artists. Most of sales are from posters based off of celebrity musicians. Does client need a license from the celebrities to sell graphic posters of the celebrities even though it is from freelance artists?
Hi fishes, what are the chances of Pwc AC rescinding an offer, given the market condition. The offer letter I have received seems to be generic and doesn't look it is for a specific project. The role seems to be generic. I am a little hesitant, specially because of HR's behaviour who doesn't seem to care responding to my queries and ignores all my emails and calls. Any advice?

Go give them a look.
Has anybody ever gotten an offer revoked after your background check?
I just accepted an offer for a new job. The industry for my brand is buttoned up, so I had to do a VERY thorough background check. I’ve never done anything blatantly bad, but I did a lot of job hopping before and now I’m overthinking everything I filled in. I’m afraid I put in wrong dates, or used a job title that didn’t match, or that somehow they are going to find criticism or salaries from an old boss. Am I being paranoid?

Any advice on how to give constructive criticism on a newbie copywriter's writing. I feel like I spent a lot of time in the past two weeks uttering the phrase "I can see what you're trying to do, but that doesn't really work" and then trying to explain why it doesn't work without saying 'this is bad, try again'. How do you articulate why certain parts of writing are good and others are not?
I really want to help the guy and boost his confidence, but it's starting to take its toll.
Is it normal to feel like my project managers are super pushy? I understand we have deadlines, but lately I have been feeling very rushed. The workload and meeting amount has been getting crazy. Today I had 12 meetings, then a route comes to me with copy change requests and my project manager checks in with me 45 minutes after. I can’t sit in a meeting then come up with copy lines 45 minutes later. I guess I’m a slow worker but I’m still learning. Is this common?

I got a 7% raise yesterday and 'potential for a bonus', but I'm disappointed. Our ACD and junior copywriter left a year ago. Despite hiring another CW six months ago, my responsibilities have almost doubled in the past year.
My boss said he fought for the 7% raise - they originally offered less. They haven't told me what bonus I qualify for, only that I 'qualify for one this year', and they haven't given me any criteria to meet.
9+ years. Still a Senior Copywriter. Feeling undervalued. Help?
Searching for two writers! 1. Mid level to partner with highly creative AD to work on campaigns across the agency. Not assigned to a team, so there will be a variety of projects.
2. Someone with retail broadcast experience for a leading furniture brand. Strategy, concepting and writing scripts. Perfect for a junior that's ready to be promoted. Gotta love fast pace and working on video.
If you or someone you know is interested in either...email me, firstname.lastname@example.org Check us out at sjp.com!
Thoughts on people calling themselves conversion copywriters? I always thought a copywriter was a copywriter and conversion was part of the job, along with many other skills.
What small tells do you use to guess how much writing experience a person actually has? For me, it's the little habits that wouldn't exist if they had more experience working with editors.
1. Using dashes in place of em dashes
2. Avoiding contractions because they think saying "we are" instead of "we're" sounds more professional.

I feel like my portfolio doesn't show how good I actually am due to luck, sexism, etc. but people always say I'm great and talented when I work with them.
