Feeling BURNT OUT...Looking for a job pivot out of social media.

Which positions and or careers in the communications would you recommend to someone who is visually creative, is decent at copywriting, enjoys research, isn't great at numbers, likes working with a team, has a ton of agency experience but is looking for a change of pace. Bonus if jobs can be remote and or come with some travel 🤌🏽

Thanks for this suggestion!

Why don’t you consider PR specifically influencer marketing? It’s fun and requires your skillset and it’s far less stressful than SMM.

I went from SMM to copywriting. You sound like you have a similar skill set and interests. Writing/content was always a passion of mine, which I made known to my superiors. They then gave me more content work and also the chance to work with different departments like UX, to get some
Web writing experience. It’s VERY likely you will have to switch agencies in order to get into copywriting, though. What I did was go to smaller shop to gain experience and the title, then back to a larger agency. As much as we both know how much work social media managers put in, creative directors don’t necessarily see the worth, which is why you probably need to jump ship to have a chance.

Yes, I actually put my notice in and am finishing up my 2 weeks. I am going to take 2 months to apply for jobs and take a mental health break while I figure out my next step. UX/UI is very interesting to me and I'd love to explore this more. I actually took an intro class through the Interactive Design Foundation and really enjoyed it.

Curious what are the more senior attorneys’ thoughts on transferring offices within the firm. For context, national practice with team members located throughout the US.

Salary research:
Hey fellow designers, I recently saw a tweet that the new hourly rate for designers in US is $200-250hr(screenshot). And more people seem to confirm that:
https://twitter.com/francois_bach/status/1399063307936354309?s=21

I think the lack of awareness of how much our peer designers make causes huge gap differences in what we’re paid.

I work full time for a sorta established tech startup in NYC with 100+ employees.
As a sr product designer I made $85k/year (no other monetary bonus)

In my new role I make $127k/year (about $67/hr). Hbu?
