...the thing is he reached out to me, and following the initial screen said that he thought I would be perfect for the role. I still think it’s too good to be true and didn’t mention my current salary but if it comes to fruition, it’s a no brainer. Just trying to figure out if we are actually THAT underpaid and if this position is way out of my league.

Thanks for the feedback, SM. I was thinking the same thing. Currently at 120. All in quoted was close to 2.5x that.

I’ve noticed companies are starting to ask if you wish to identify if you’re LGBTQ+ when applying for jobs. When I’ve gone along with this I notice recruiters focus more on diversity and employee groups, and it’s making me feel like I’m being interviewed as a potential diversity hire, especially when I’ve received interviews from companies that are prone to boy’s club culture. I’m not really sure how I feel about this. Anyone else experience it or have thoughts?

In the past six years I’ve grown from an intern to my current position in an average-sized agency (~80 people) in a medium-sized market (Southeast). I’m starting to look for the next opportunity, but not sure how to best position myself and what job to look for. I develop creative myself, with extensive skills in photo/video, Lr, Pr, Ps, Ae and C4d, I manage a team, develop concepts, pitch to clients, pioneer innovations, build case studies & have two masters. What am I & where should I look?

People who address others (who they don’t know) by first name in professional correspondence: Why? I understand with e-mail especially, it is easy to let the informality of the communication process steer you in the direction of being informal. But I am surprised by the number of people who ignore the ancient rule of addressing someone in court: Defer to the formal anytime there is a question as to how a person would prefer to be addressed. The formal - Mr., Mrs., Ms., Dr., Rev. plus last name.
