How do you know when a job is a bad fit? I can’t tell if it’s them or me. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Any Mediabrands peeps have thoughts on the new Reprise?

I asked my manager this morning that I wanted to change teams. Moving from sales to recruitment. I just started 2 months ago but I realized sales is not for me. My manager suggested that he’ll discuss this internally. However, I noticed they just posted for another role for sales right after my discussion with my manager. Can I be let go from company over this? Especially if the recruiting team decides not to have me on their team.

Happy Friday beautiful ladies!! 😍 I'm looking for new opportunities and I am interested in a customer success manager position at @Lenovo. Was wondering if someone can help me out with a referral? Thanks much! 😊

How do you stop overthinking everything? I've always been neurotic but I feel accounting has made it even worse. Can't focus at all and feeling weak since I feel mentally paralyzed when it comes to making any decisions both professionally and personally.

5 years in pharma and I still don’t find hotsheets to be productive. HCP, DTC, launches—don’t matter.

PM’s hot sheet emails ARE actually helpful, and not cramming everyone in a phone booth for it since 2020 has been an improvement. But outside of introducing new team members and giving our goodbyes to those who are leaving, it just seems like a meeting that is better off as an email or held once-a-week, which I’ve experienced for a few brands and nothing of value was lost.

Am I wrong? Naive?

What are the best pieces to include in your "book"?

BACKGROUND: I transitioned from medical copy editing (7 years) to medical content/news writing (2 years) to pharma/medical copywriting (1.5 years). I'm currently a senior copywriter for FCB working on a new drug launch. I've created the Day 0 splash page (US), brand style guide (global), HCP and patient Day 1 & Day 14 emails (US), and an HCP Thought Leader Liaison slide deck. My journey has been non-traditional so I don't have a book per se.
