How do I jump to media/entertainment? ie Viacom, Warner/HBO, CNN. I don’t care if I’m producing promos, post-producing, doing Jr Biz Affairs & clearances. I’m not trying to run global operations. Do I keep applying into that online abyss? Are there recruiters here? Someone want a referral fee? I’m Sr level agency producer, there must be something I can do besides Exec Assistant??

Are you familiar with Promax? It’s an entertainment association and they have some good resources for networking. That might be a good angle for you. https://www.promax.org/professional-development Good luck!

Rejected by 2 exit ops after on-sites where 2 of 3 recruiters sent a personal message/email saying something like "you seem great/qualified but not the right fit". One said "the HM said you seem really bright and would hire asap if we were looking for a generalist". Another said "this isn't about weakness or lack of experience, just questions on fit". Do recruiters say this to a lot of people or is this genuine? Trying to gauge whether my interview performance is at least solid.

Hi all - I’m working as a Jr AE at a remote agency. Before full-time at this agency, I interned there for 2 years and often did pro-bono work. I love my company so much, but I often feel stuck when it comes to salary and growth. The salary is minimum wage and every time I ask about a raise they agree I need one but never get around to it. Today, I was offered a position at another agency as a remote AE with more than double my current salary. I didn’t seek this job out but don’t know what to do.

Reviewing resumes and I see more and more frequent that people last one year or less at a job and move on to the next. Is that the new norm? I’m a millennial but my last job I was with for over 4 years. Can I ask in the interview why they’ve moved around so much? Or find a nicer way of asking that. I’m definitely looking for longevity not a hopper.
