Advertising

I have a (dumb) question. What does it really mean when a job opening is put on hold? Is that just code for no longer hiring, or does it mean they are waiting to make sure there’s room?

Could be a lot of things mentioned above. But seems more likely that they’re holding onto hiring due to the uncertain economy right now. Consumers aren’t out there stimulating the economy, so clients aren’t making money. If clients aren’t making money, guess where they’re going to cut budgets: advertising. I think that’s probably the likely scenario imo.

Could mean many things: waiting for newly won work to hit, might be interviewing an internally nominated candidate instead, etc.

Could mean the scope of work hasn’t been signed. Could mean they are still figuring out what pieces they need to hire for the team. Could also mean that they lost revenue/account and are figuring out if they need to hire or not.

Openings have projected salary against them so holding openings can cut money without cutting people. Likely the first round of cost savings measures.

Looking for advice on handling a bully. I am relatively junior in the ranks, but have climbed significantly over my tenure and am now responsible for several areas of law for the co. One of the VPs of a department I support isn’t fond of me. It generally doesn’t bother me, but shes developed a habit recently that I need to address: on large group calls when asking for legal advice, she asks me “to reach out to outside counsel” rather than asking me for advice directly. How do I respond?
