Hii! Has any of you been sending work for awards?
I see a lot of student competitions around but not many for young professionals.

I constantly have to ask the project manager for work, & when I am assigned something, it’s design work. Meanwhile, the other juniors here are working on conceptual briefs for big brands.

Does anyone know which agencies are still hiring remote Jr Ad positions? This recent grad will highly appreciate it 🥺


I just started my first fulltime job. It is inhouse and I'm in office. I've been here for a little less then a month now but I still feel like they don't have enough work for me to be full time. I'm constantly asking my Manager what I should be working on and she hardly ever gives me anything. So far I've spent 80% of my days here just researching/reading industry articles. I know it will ramp up some but I feel like there is no way it will be enough to fill 40 hours. What do I do?


This might sound dumb but who do I actually ask for a promotion? I'm at a fairly big agency and a bit overwhelmed with the different CDs, creative managers, ECDs, HR directors and other titles that I'm not sure who to go to.
