Who did you reach out to at ddb? I've spoke to one of the recruiters several times and she's always been responsive (I don't mean immediate but she does get back). Not to mention one of the nicest person I've met in the Chicago industry.

How does one move from an IC to a people manager? I am currently a senior consultant, and it has proven very difficult to move to an external company as a consulting manager, without having any actual people manager experience under my belt. Internally, being promoted is just as difficult as they are hiring externally for managers with managerial experience. Any ideas on how to make that jump of levels?
