I am applying for some in-house roles and wanted to hear from other brand strategists who have made the transition. Thinking about job requirements like “experience developing a marketing plan” which a strategist would understand but not have experience developing...I’m wondering how you spoke about your background and skill set in an interview process to overcome a lack of in-house experience? Thanks for any thoughts

Hey y'all! Currently a month away from finishing a design internship at a studio I really love. I DEFINITELY want to stay full time and need some advice on how I can make that happen. They mentioned during my interview that they were looking for interns that they'd wanna hire full-time, but I know that doesn't guarantee it. Is this something I have to bring up to them or will that be awkward? And how would you go about doing it? Will they let me know? Appreciate any advice anyone has!

Hi all, is it rude to reach out to a recruiter on behalf of your spouse? I want to surprise my wife with an interview, shes very qualified for visual designer and art director positions in tech, but so far shes only worked with advertising companies, and competition in that industry isn’t great unless youre a creative director.
I want to start earning some extra money on the side by applying some of my skills that I normally don't use at my regular work - excel vba macros, technical writing and data analysis.
I have tried many freelance sites but never got a project. They all seem very overwhelming and crowded. In 2023 I want to focus on one site and invest all my energy into it. Any suggestions where to start?

I recently interviewed at a company and the hiring manager(HM) asked for my expected salary and said that he will make it same & forward to HR.
But had a HR discussion today and they are saying that it’s not in the budget and want to come down.
I went back to the HM, he said that he’ll be talking to the HR , and after that HM said that it’s a little hard for the leadership team and hence, would be discussing with the VP if that could be offered.Will they come back now or I lost job?

I need your advice here, I have recently cleared the bloomreach interview and from very begining of the processes I have informed them about the offer I already had.
I have a offer of value : X amount base +50 k variable.
Even After sharing that offer breakup they have shared their offer as below:
Base : X - 4 + 5% variable and 6 L joining bonus.
I don't think it's right decision to accept this one as I already have an offer of X amount which is 4 L

Am I the only one that feels like we should have our student loans forgiven? (And I used to be adamantly opposed to ANY student loan forgiveness)
Our salaries continue to DECREASE as cost of living increases (not just “no raises”…decrease!…I realize I’m preaching to the choir haha). I can barely (and by “barely” I mean “can’t” TBH) make bills, pay for kids activities, etc (also a single mom of 3, for more context) LET ALONE pay my loans…
How do we start that movement?…
Who’s with me?! 🤷🏻♀️😜

Big 4 are short on seniors. My advice would be to brush up on the group you’re interviewing for and be able to demonstrate that you understand what the group does and the work that it comes with. How the work that you’re currently done will translate in big 4
Thank you very much; I definitely will do that!
I expect it to be easier than before at getting a job in Big 4 for senior level since the turnover has been so high the past two years.￼
I certainly hope so! I’m now officially a senior so I’m trying to plan in advance to make that switch post 10/15. Thank you very much!
Ya honestly at least I’m my group, if you are somewhat likeable and have a pulse, you’d have a pretty good shot. Don’t think those interviews are very technical at all
That’s great to hear! If you don’t mind me asking, which group and location are you in?
