Hoping to get some thoughts on career path? I left an agency about 1.5 years ago (content manager and prev social) to go in house (copywriter). Long story short, agency wants to offer me a senior director role. However, this isn't client facing and would be marketing for the agency itself. I left to focus on writing. I love the company where I'm at now. The agency is small compared to my current company, but the title could be helpful later. Thoughts?

Marketing for the agency itself doesn’t really seem like fulfilling work! Not sure how long I’d be able to last.

Not sure how the title is helpful if you’re not making meaningful work. Maybe you’ll have a creative director title, but you’ll be competing for jobs with people who have both the title and the work

Do you not smell the bs?? They're dangling the "senior" title hoping you'd fall for it.

Does anyone have insight into compensation bands for consultants in the communications or public affairs fields? I see a lot of posts about salary for Cs, SCs, Ms, etc (wayyy more than what I make!) but I know ranges on here include some career disciplines that are typically more lucrative. I can’t tell if I’m in range for the offering I’m in or if I’m severely underpaid.

Not proud of it, but I was hooking up with a co-worker/friend pre-COVID. I left the state when wfh started and we still talk every day, but nothing romantic. He made it clear at the beginning that he didn’t want to date because we’re co-workers. Stung a bit when I went on a dating app this morning and saw his profile. The rational part of me knows we’re only ever going to be buddies and that if he actually wanted me, then he’d make something happen. Looking for advice on how to get over this.
