Congrats on the offer. Do you know who the contact is there? It’s so siloed that no one seems to know who writers should contact. Any info would be appreciated

Good Q CW2 - it honestly depends on where you’re trying to land. business units will take the lead on desirable teams to work on (IBM Watson, IBM Cloud, Services etc), so there really isn’t a central recruiter who manages staffing and role fulfillment. To echo ACD 1, the past two years have been a time of much reorganization and shuffling, especially on the marketing side of things, so a concrete answer to give you is tough. There are many writers here now who came from publishing backgrounds, and there are others who strictly focused on copywriting as a discipline/content strategy/sales marketing as well.

Run. If you thought Publicis was bad... they take it to another level. Interviewed fairly thoroughly for a Managment/Partner role. One of the hiring managers completely admitted there is no work life balance or the ability to grow. Because everyone is deployed on client sites with no real org structure to advance

Thanks @IBM1

Other than the obvious "IBM careers,” any suggestions as to what specific ibm links or keywords / phrases to search for, for job postings?

If you’d rather leave the bowl I can be reached at FishbowlWriter15@gmail

Thanks again

My tolerance for bullshit increases the more I’m paid. If it’s $$$ and not just $$, I’d do it. You can deal with anything for 12 months if you’re saving and paying bills.

Yes!

I was working in agencies for the last 5 years. What has shocked me most upon reflecting on my time in ad world is how everything at an agency is about ME.

There’s no loyalty to your agency or bond with your team. It’s just what can I do to get ahead. The juxtaposition between this and now working client side has been so glaring.
