Always donuts, unless you’re in NYC, and in that case always bagels, but never from Starbucks.

The skills will come and there’s lots of training. Think about how you want to build your network. Catch up with (or plan to) people you met through recruiting or you know from other connections. Think about the type of people you want to go to know and plan to reach out once you’ve started. A good network will help you get answers to rookie questions, think through problems, give helpful advice.

Looking to boomerang back to PwC. The offer for a salaried position was pretty solid, but that one-time sign on bonus will go away the next year (obviously). They mentioned ‘Talent-Exchange’ and getting paid hourly with no benefits. If I did that, I would make about 205k (gross, with no benefits). That’s assuming I would average 55 hours a week throughout the year (pretty similar to what I work right now). Anyone have experience doing this? I’m worried averaging 55 is not possible.

Both similar in building teams and bringing partners up. Both pay is similar. But going vendor side (not sales) would that hinder my path on the media/agency side if I were to take it? Director at large ad Agency or Director at Vendor DSP.
