I hear WK cares a lot about "side hustles". What does that mean specifically? Any non-work related project?

For many creative companies, it’s an unconscious (or maybe conscious) way of filtering out candidates who, for social or economic reasons, spend their “spare” time on economic pursuits vs. creative ones. It prioritizes those who are, for instance, moonlighting as an unpaid DJ or designing T-shirts vs. taking care of an elderly parent, breastfeeding, or working a second or third desk job, etc.

Befriend WK employees as a side hustle.

I think it just means… what do you do outside of work that makes you interesting. Doesn’t necessarily have to generate income as “side hustle” implies. Are you a copywriter that produces music and has a following on Spotify. Are you an art director with some baller full parts in some freestyle ski films. Idk those are lame examples. basically. I think places like WK want interesting people first, killer “creatives” (in a traditional sense, cw + ad’s) second. I may be totally wrong as I have never worked there. Just my impression.

As a guy with mostly "just-OK" work in my book who wants to move up to better agencies, I would love to see some good examples. I've been through a lot of books from W+K creatives and they are always impressive on the advertising side but I am not seeing many impressive side projects.

What others have said. It’s just a new way to ask “so what do you do outside of work?” File it under culture fit questions.

They mean “Creative side hustles” They don’t care if you’re helping kids or the homeless during your free time.

Hi IBM sharks 😊

So I joined IBM in May 2022 and was on bench for 5.5 months since then.I will be allocated to a project next week. Also my probation got confirmed a week back.

I have following queries-
1)With me joining a project so late, can I expect a Variable Pay in March 2023?
2)The manager told me I have flexibility to choose 2-11 shift or work in morning as everyone is flexible here. What must I do officially to get that monthly shift allowance?

Any inputs r highly appreciated guys 😊

Is it better to float the possibility of working remote long term with HR now? Or do I accept and say nothing til we’ve officially decided to move. I don’t want to lose the opportunity. What would u do?
