How common are remote jobs in this industry? Any tips on how to land one?

If possible in your situation, it’s easier to take an in-person job for at least a year and then move away and transition to remote. You’ve proven your worth at that point and an employer who might not otherwise consider remote will be more open to the idea.

Look into tech and media. Outside of big agencies.

remote is pretty common, I think you just need to know where to look! there are specific sites just for finding remote work (Flexjobs is one that comes to mind) plus I’ve had luck with facebook groups.

Yeah I havent seen someone get a new job from somewhere else—only keep the job they have when they move. Its more about them not wanting you to go. If they hire you, they pay for you to move to where they are.

I did this. I had to build relationships while on the ground, then drop the seed that I’ll be going remote. It’s harder to book new clients while remote (I assume even harder for creatives as you’re there’s much more back and forth than with strategists) but if they get comfortable with you/ you get with their approach, moving to partially remote would be more palpable. Though I’ve had open- minded clients who I was referred to THROUGH my remote clients - but at this point it feels like this is more for teams that are also working this way. I found it’s more popular in tech. Also, I had a ton of savings and could deal with periods of not working - your “conversion rate” will be much much lower of clients who actually book you.

That being said I was turning to land traditional strategy jobs. If you’re in something digital it’ll be much easier and there are a lot of FB groups

I feel like I need a career coach because I am considering switching jobs but I don’t know where to go or where to start. I feel really overwhelmed and don’t know what I’m qualified for.

Especially with WFH I feel like there’s absolutely no networking or anyone to talk to outside of my team

Back on the market and I’m coming to find two things: 1. Less desirable agencies are the ones who want people back on-site soon, with no wiggle room for remote work. 2. These same agencies want to pay salaries based on COL in the city where the agency is based even if you’re working/living from another market in the interim. Example: Midwest based agency paying Midwest salaries to folks living in places like NY, SF, LA. 🧐🧐🧐🧐

I used to be a top performer before rona but have been so unmotivated for the last year of WFH and my performance is tanking because of it. I know some people love this life but I absolutely hate it; I chose audit because I enjoy being onsite at clients and thrive on the team camaraderie of audit rooms. WFH was okay at first, but the longer I'm stuck sitting at the same desk in my house alone all day the more meaningless everything feels to me. I don't know what the solution is, but I'm so tired
