Hey y’all! I have a bachelors in business administration with a concentration in management and finance, and I am now back in school to get my MBA. I been working for about 2 years but haven’t been able to get myself a good salary job. I live in Washington DC area and rent, bills and life is so expensive that I don’t seem to be able to keep up. Thinking about shifting or incorporating IT, maybe project management. Any advice??
Hello! I currently work for the devil in Sin City (ID in NV) but I would love to get into esports law. I am very passionate about video games and esports, and have friends who are coaches and former pros. Is this an unobtainable dream? Or has anyone made such a wild transition before? Any advice on making my resume more suitable for such a switch? I would greatly appreciate any advice or insight. Thank you!

We have a status meeting with the whole litigation team and the partner (new) wants a written status report from each associate regarding current matters. That’s all good and well, but any suggestions on specific items I can include that would be most useful to him? The basics about deadlines and next action items I have, but I want him to know I’m dependable and want to make his transition seamless. What information that I might not be considering would accomplish that? Sorry for the word salad
Tax friends. Quick question. 2 years in tax so bare with me. So I know Florida does not offer a series LLC. What is the best structure for flipping homes for two people doing this business together? S-corp that owns multiple LLC’s for each property? Would members have to get separate bank accounts and keep separate books for each LLC? Keep in mind they only hold these properties max 1.5 months, they are quick. They do not engage in rental business at all therefore these properties are not held

My agency hasn’t promoted an ACD to CD in the several years I’ve been there, but has hired plenty of CDs from the outside. How did you CDs make the jump from ACD?
Still figuring out creative promotions: is it essentially jr ad/cw -> ad/cw -> sr. ad/cw -> acd -> cd -> ecd -> cco
I once worked at a unicorn of an agency. (In Minneapolis) And I’m wondering if there are any other like it out there.
- The agency was creatively led
- Most people were gone at 5:30 everyday
- Pitches were not crazy—I worked about 4 weekends in 4 years
- They asked what I wanted to work on, & whether I had time for projects
- Great work—campaigns won awards like Cannes, One Show, CA
- In a town of world-class agencies (Fallon, Carmichael Lynch) it was the shop where creatives wanted to work.
Does anyone else feel like they are overworked all the time? at every job I've worked at, I'm nearly always the last to leave yet still getting underpaid and not recognized for doing good work

Did you know that in Asia a trade pub annually ranks over 2000 creatives based on a points system from all the major award shows? (Campaign Brief Asia). Do you see this as positive/opportunity for advancement and celebration or negative/a force for the toxic side of our biz/scam etc?
