I am digital strategist with 7+ years of experience and co-own a bar/restaurant. I left agency life 2 years ago to launch another location that didn’t open. When interviewing people focus on the bar?

I didn’t have a chance to finish typing the rest. But I want to continue in agency life. But I feel I am being offered more junior positions instead of positions with 7+ years of experience! How can I better refocus on my agency skill set?

Focus on entrepreneurship unless seeking a position specifically working on HRM accounts.

Theoretically you should be able to spin that to show that you can handle long-term projects with many moving pieces and also know when to pull the plug on things. That said, I might not delve too much into the other income sources because that will become a point of contention in office politics.

I had a job interview for a role that I really want. The hiring manager scheduled me for an interview and did not show up. Emailed me an hour later stating that he got super busy and couldn’t attend, and would like to reschedule. This is a major red flag, but I can’t help but feel that I am missing out since this role pays 50% over what I currently make. Should I let the recruiter know? What’s your take on this?

So I’m planning on leaving my position before school starts, but the application and interview process has been slow. At this point I’m afraid I won’t find a job until late July. Should I let my school now and let them post my job as an anticipated position? I’d hate for them to have to find someone last minute, but I also want to keep that school as a fall back just in case. Unfortunately, it’s a terrible position and there has not been a lot of interest in it in the past.
