Oh god. Firewood? Let me guess. They’re storytellers. Like a campfire. Where you tell stories. And those they create are the firewood your brand needs. 🤢

I interviewed there last year for an art director role. It is basically working at Google for all intents and purposes. Email marketing, AdWords, etc. My time was gonna be split between their office and the Google campus.

They seemed like nice people though and the space had a nice view.

They’re straight marketing work. Doing email shit for tech companies. If you want to write digital web copy, go right ahead.

@Senior Designer 1 ya sounds like the same scenario I’m interviewing for. The work seems dry but it’s for Google so debating it...🤷🏻‍♀️

Clearance question: My mom is a naturalized US citizen who has been living in Iran since my parents divorced 15 years ago. I’ve been told that this will stop me from getting a clearance. Is that true?

Hi OD folks! I’m new to the field and I know how important it is to eventually ‘specialize’ in a particular area within the OD umbrella. In your opinion, what areas are the most interesting/pays well? (FYI I have a talent acquisition background, but not sure if or how I can leverage it). Feel free to share your experiences as well! I would love to hear your stories.

I posted a while ago that I had a pro bono client in Afghanistan who was seeking a SIV for himself and his family. They were located really far from Kabul so we were trying to find alternate ways out of the country while doing whatever we could to get his SIV application through. Well…I just learned that my client and his family were killed today. And I cannot focus on anything else. I feel like I failed.

I don’t know who needs to hear this*, but I think it’s important to acknowledge that a lot of the issues this industry has had with burnout and mental exhaustion weren’t caused by the pandemic and working from home.

The pandemic was just the thing that made the bubble burst.

Dear C-Level leaders, if you find yourself writing that year-end email to your valued employees, and you are penning something in the ilk of “please use the holidays to recharge for the coming year”...I’d encourage you to delete that sentence and concentrate on not draining the life out of your people during the previous 360 days of the year.
