Have you ever seen one of the nicest, most talented, hardest working people get fired for no good reason. Really breaks my heart about how heartless this industry can be ☹️

Yes. We had just lost two accounts and failed to win three pitches in a row. And this one creative, one of the sharpest, most original, and hard-working creatives I've ever worked with, was let go. Not six months out of school at the time. Broke my heart so bad, I stormed into the CCOs' office and demanded an explanation—which was a shit one, at the end of the day. Really colored my thinking about them and the agency as a whole. She's at Droga now. Which proves two things: Everything happens for a reason; and, more importantly, I was right. 💅🏿

I'm not saying anything about my own talent, but when I got fired once the entire team made me feel much better by being actively upset and confused. I still ❤️ that team.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

Does anyone else feel like their burn-out cycle is shorter? It used to take me about 2 years of grind before I hit a burn-out phase where I needed to do some serious recuperating.

And by burn-out, I mean you're at the point that every single ball you are juggling can drop and you get fired and almost see that as a blessing.

I’m currently a mid level art director and have an offer to be a Sr. AD at a good agency. I feel a little guilty and insecure that maybe if I accept this offer I will be biting off more than I can chew since I’ve only been a mid level for a year. Is that BS or am I right to feel that way? On one hand I’m like okay this is basically the same thing I’m doing now but probably more client facing (which I’m cool with) and on the other hand I feel like an imposter. What should I do?
