I had been in the ad industry for a while, and now realized that I don’t want to be in this industry. How did you find out what you want to do for your career? Any tips would be super helpful!

This is the time I regret that I could have gotten a better GPA during undergrad LOL. Have you gotten an MBA? And how was that experience for you?

Think about where you want to finish your career and work backwards.

Very curious about the ad industry! What about it is making you realize it’s not for you?

I’d be happy to share more if you are down for DM! But essentially I want to be more at control of the branding and marketing of a company with a compensation. Ad industry is great but I have felt limited that we can only put forth strategic/tactical recommendations and wait until the clients choose to move forward. Especially during Covid there has been a limitation to how much we can move forward due to budget and timing.

Talk to people; ask why they did XYZ and what their longer term goals are. See if any of that speaks to you.

When my older brother was in bschool he got a lot of his classmates to talk to me which helped broaden my understanding of what types of jobs were out there.

When I was recruited I was told we would discuss equity/carry on a deal by deal basis. Would love any data points from others on their comp/etc.

My father passed away a few years ago and my mom is actively looking for another partner now. I am open to her finding someone but she is going about it in a dangerous way.
