You just say, “thanks for talking with me. I’ve decided I’m not going to move forward right now, but I really appreciate the interest.” When in doubt, just kindly tell the truth. If they ask you why, tell them. A good one will want to know.

Just tell the truth. Thanks for making the effort, I appreciate it but feel this role is not the right fit at this time. But I’d like to stay in touch for future positions and keep you updated on what I’m up to if that’s cool.

Have never touched “shopper marketing” and have just done a few POP things. Thinking about moving to Chicago and looking into some agencies that do this. Had a call w/ recruiter and she (cont’d)

so. I got the chop today. I’m pretty upset but mostly bc I can’t go back to the office for obvious reasons, and I really need to. For the past year I’ve been hiding little keepsakes (continued...)

Art Directors, do you ever feel that your designs look much worse after studio takes them? I am pretty good in photoshop and I am noticing lots of the work just looks bad and it takes rounds and rounds with Mac artists to get it right. Same goes with retouching. Why? Shouldn’t it be the opposite? 🤷‍♂️
