So this just happened to me today but it’s happened before and I noticed no one in mgmt cares to correct the habit. A director emailed me and my boss a question. Cc’d a colleague. I responded to the question. The colleague responded thanking my boss for it, not me. Then proceeded to ask another question. I know my boss won’t know the answer and will refer to me. So far, I haven’t responded. See below for more…

Hi all, I apologize because I know there have been posts on this bowl with similar subject matter recently, but I really need advice.

I am at a risk of losing my job at the end of this month if I don’t make some changes to my work performance, specifically meeting my monthly billable hour requirement. My work and my work product is not an issue - my partner has repeatedly commended me on everything I produce, but my billable hours are seriously lacking.

Comedy writing for advertising: books? Guides?

Does anyone know of any distillation or principles? Ex: the antagonist works better represented like this, the straight man relates to the brand this way, nuts and bolts stuff.

Websites, podcasts, interviews, anything appreciated.

I was apart of a ton of pitches which I think is valuable experience. We just....didn’t win.
