I just landed a full time role in creative at an agency but I have PTSD from my last job. I know this is kind of a broad ask, but I could use any advice that would help me not be terrible at work and keep me from getting fired.

What's upsetting you the most? I've found being open and communicating with my manager about it has helped. My last full time job the CD was not a good boss and I learned I had to approach her and start the conversation or I would just end up fired because she couldn't even tell me if I did something wrong and would let me just keep doing it. Because of that I learned to just start those conversations about how I'm feeling with my bosses and they have been generally helpful.

Thanks! I’ll keep this in mind. 😊

Start your new role by giving everyone there the benefit of the doubt.

Ask questions if you have them. Nobody will assume you’re not smart. You are new, being new comes with questions.

Communicate clearly and often with your whole team.

You’re gonna be great.
Trust. Believe.

Thank you!

What caused the ptsd at your last role? And what is carrying over through that fear/anxiety into this one? Are you nervous about making the same mistakes? Did your last role not support learning and making them? Would help to know what didn’t work so you can land on what will/does.

Thank you! 😊

Job base salary presented by HR during screening interview was $130-$145k. I have 3-5 years more experience and more education compared to the posting requirements (BA required, I have a MS). I love the position and what it entails, but was hoping to reach $150-$160 base salary. If offered the position, is this a reasonable ask? This is for big pharma, data analytics in New England.

Highly recommend learning your attachment style and emotional mindfulness before stepping into a new relationship or trying to date. I have an avoidant attachment style and finally acknowledged how I was showing up in relationships, which wasn’t contributing to the healthy relationships I said I wanted. I spent most of this year doing a lot of inner work and met an amazing guy with a secure attachment. Our relationship is healthy with a strong foundation.

I never wanted to be in advertising. I went to school for graphic design and loved it and before i could blink I was creating ads. Don’t get me wrong I understand that all graphic design roles must come with some advertising, but I’m just realizing why I dislike my job. It’s because I never actually wanted to do said job, I wanted to do something different. Anyone else come to this realization? Was it possible to go back to the design life? How hard was it?
