Them: Why did you leave your last job? Me: I took the advice of a meme I saw on Linkedin and hired smart people to tell me what they wanted to do. They told me they wanted to take my job. What I said instead: Agency restructuring.

Them: Why are you looking for a new opportunity? Honestly: My current boss has no idea what she is doing and uses me as a scapegoat when things go wrong. Based on the lack of creativity in your questions I imagine you will be a equally stupid boss as well, but I have mastered the art of managing up and believe I can’t train her, but feel there is a possibility to educate you. My response: Lack of career advancement.

Them: why are you looking for another agency at this time? Me: My Account Director and our CCO are sleeping together and it is the most uncomfortable environment I’ve ever been in. What I actually said: I’d like to expand my experience into other verticals.

Them: Why did you leave your last job? Me: The agency was having financial woes and they didn’t want THAT word to get out- so they fired me instead- to save face (and money) and assign blame elsewhere. No leadership (The Emperor has no clothes), no vision, no accountability, no culture, and accounts leaving faster than we could win new ones. Did I mention no respect for creative? Actual: The agency was having financial woes.
