Has anyone here had any luck going from retail banking to corporate? Currently struggling to land a new offer and don’t feel at all supporting by the management team and haven’t heard back from any of the interviews I’ve had :(

This jump is one of the more terrifying ones. They still consider you a small fish in a big pond and it sucks when it's not reflective of your abilities.

I got placed on a PIP bc I had expressed interest in exploring other departments and I feel completely gridlocked and stressed since losing a job in this economy feels like a death sentence lol

Hang tight, busy season is upon us. Everything is slow right about now with people being out. Hopefully you hear back this week regarding next steps.

Can be challenging, but not impossible. I'd start by optimizing your resume. You want to highlight the skills you currently have that would translate well to the corporate world. From there, you can hone the additional skills you'll need, but you want to make your resume as closely aligned to the roles you're applying to. Best of luck!

I moved from FA/planner role to Associate in Corporate Finance. Possible but you need smth to show the commitment and interest. In my case it was CFA.

I had a really weird interview for Creative Director today.

It’s a small startup. HR interviewed me and asked all the hard hitting questions (how do you get design inspiration, how do you deal with design roadblocks, what sets you apart for this role?) which I thought was odd for a screening interview.

They made some affirmative noises then said the next step would be a design test (one pager) which I would present to a panel of interviewers including the CMO.
Anyone else think this is odd?

Making a lot of money relative to the average but feeling poor? Median after-tax income was ~$55,000 in 1981 and was ~$73,000 in 2020. Using a Bank of Canada inflation calculator $55,000 in 1981 is equivalent to ~$165,000 today, which would put someone in the top 10% of earners today. But in 1981 the median family had that extra money. Who can I blame?

Hi creatives! I need your help here. A quick background:

Junior copywriter based in Toronto here. Came to Canada about a year ago and did an internship at Klick Health.

Once it ended in late August, they didn't take on ANY intern full time. Been job searching for the past 3 months. Would really appreciate any leads/insight on some entry level gig or internship that might be available in this city. I know it's year end and it's hard, but I am still hopeful as I have seen people still get hired.
