I asked in the general forum but figured I’d reach to you ladies too - have any of you negotiated to have your new agency cover part or all of the closing costs when selling your home to relocate?

You should negotiate for an overall move package


Yes, it’s done. Just negotiate total relo package and include an amount for that in total number


They are tax deductible/can go against capital gains if you have them so you might wanna go the lump sum moving expenses route and leave closing costs out of it

Follow up post to my last post…My husband was laid off from the company where I also work. I am feeling really isolated / depressed about working and moving forward. I’m also getting to a stage where I’m really sad that people haven’t reached out to either my husband or myself to send well wishes or provide support. It’s like they don’t know what to say or I make them feel awkward so they don’t bother…I’m trying to focus on a few that have been supportive but it’s hard…Any words of advice? 😞

Hello people. Need a suggestion and please provide your honest inputs. I'm with EY GDS (India) currently (3 YOE) with a package of 10LPA.

Can someone please explain what type of life insurance I should be purchasing? I’m setting up life insurance trusts for my wife and me and now need to purchase the actual policies. We’re late 30s, 2 kids, lots of assets. I’ve spoken to 3 insurance brokers and they are all inconsistent in what we should be getting, so don’t know who is scamming us! Term life, whole life, universal, etc. Why isn’t this shit taught in like high school? Something so important shouldn’t be complicated to get right!

Anyone willing to share their experience ?
I'm an Account Supervisor who moved from France to Canada in 2020.
Since I've arrived, I've not been feeling worthy
1- I feel like a lot of time, because I'm an immigrant and look pretty young (Loving my new skin care routine haha) I'm not taken seriously
2- I've started working in advertising in 2012 (with a 2 years break) so I do have experience - But wasn't in Canada, so feels like it doesn't count.

I’m planning to move to a new city to be with my fiancé, targeting March 2021.

Even before the pandemic, I was hoping to ask to keep my job and work remotely, but now I’m worried about drawing attention to myself or rocking the boat during this tumultuous time.

How do I broach the conversation? At what point? Should I start with my direct manager (an SVP), the EVP in charge of my group, or someone else? Any advice welcome!


Matt why 😩😩😩😩


Does anyone else feel like their eyelids get slightly swollen or hooded a day after Botox? This happened last time but not the day after and lasted for weeks! So I told her to use less (around 20 units on my forehead) this time. It’s not that bad, but I don’t want hooded lids...and it’s only a day later but I’m panicking!

Would love advice on work life balance. On an account that does a lot of events. We are social AOR. Unfortunately they always seem to plan something new every 3-4 weeks. We are expected to create posts from photog images (often waiting around at our comps all day for updates, assets, dealing with client back & forth in the late hours, etc.). I am always the one dealing with these fires. My acct director never says no to weekend work/ picks up any slack for me. I get no overtime, perks, anything.

Any advice on how to answer "What's your biggest weakness?" in an interview?

Working insane hours and I don’t know how to make it stop. When I try to address it with my account manager, resourcing or boss, they’ll tell me to set boundaries but put me on the same volume of work with the same expectations or imply I’m overreacting. I feel like I’m going crazy. I’m so sad and tired and I don’t think I’m thinking right anymore. The ironic thing is I’m perceived as less competent than my male peers. They have stable accounts and teams. I float. (Or sink, I guess). Help.

Hi ladies - I am in need of some advice please!

Would you take up an offer with a higher title and salary in a new city on a so so brand or stick out your “path to promotion” at your current agency? Was told they would push for my promo to happen in 5 months. Should i bring up this offer to current employer or would that burn bridges?

Don’t think I am ready to move but the title and salary is guaranteed so don’t want to lose out on a golden opportunity ya know?

Thank you!
