For the first time in 2 years I’m feeling hopeful again. Dare I say happy. I was laid off, big agency network, with a truck load of international awards, over 40, interviewed non stop, got ghosted ...

2 years. That’s rough. Way to stick it out 👊🏼

Nice to stick it out, but don’t forget about the next creative that’s doing the same thing, needing the same opportunity. You have a leadership role, lead by finding great creatives and giving them their shot too.

Congrats! I’d love to hear your POV on the challenges aside from ghosting, lessons learned etc. Do you feel age or art/copy background was a factor in length of search? Might help those in similar position, or those with only a Prius full of awards vs. a whole truckload.

Bingo. I parted ways with a network agency about three years back. They are still trying to decide who they are, something they lost sight of after almost a decade of pursuing pure growth and profits. But I am very grateful to have learned with them, and because of them. Managed to derive a powerful story from my experiences, and career and projects have never been better. Chose to freelance because it turned out to be much more lucrative. Still working with great teams, with the flexibility to travel wherever, whenever I want. You gotta have your story. Also, I have an art background but am doing way more strategic and other writing.

Lucky you and lucky them! Congrats and good luck in the new role. Nothing better than a boss who truly appreciates how fortunate we are to do this silly job for money.
