Hey all, I’m thinking of hosting a live talk for this bowl to go over some of the more frequently asked questions about the brand side. Would anyone be interested in joining? If so, are there any topics you’d like to hear more about or discuss?

I’d be interested if you’ve spent a lot of time on the agency side as well — most of my questions would be about the differences between the two.

I would love to hear from people who work in tech or at fun non-agencies, who USED TO work at agencies… tell us how it’s better and how to get in! ❤️‍🔥

Find a way to personally brand yourself… speak to your specific niche (Agencies), and how they could be better, why they’re “broken”, the challenges of working in an Agency- etc…start following the brands you admire, ones that align to your values/ aesthetics/ etc and listen in, follow the recruiters, connect with others that align to the roles you want…

I think my favorite piece of advice when making the shift to tech was….. if you go to a job interview looking for a job, there’s a good chance you’ll leave with some advice BUT if you go to a job interview looking for advice, you’ll probably land a job.

Build a network, seek advice … take the leap.
