Lesson learned: better title and more money mean nothing at the wrong company

This recently happened to me on the Creative side. Big bump in salary and title, seemed like a great opportunity, so I took it. 4 months into the job and it’s not at all what I was told. Anyway, I got an offer paying me even more (and another bump in title) and I’m going back to an agency in the network I was previously in. Kinda nervous but it’s your life right? So screw it if you’ve only been there for a bit. Life’s too short and you need to do what’s best for you and your career.

LinkedIn! Start applying for jobs again (if you see anything you like) or maybe reach out to recruiters/talent acquisition at a company you’re interested in working for and see if they’re hiring. Also some advice I got from hiring managers: if you’re worried about only having a 3-4 month stint on your resume, say you freelanced OR just leave it off

Sounds like you should make a case for expanding your team. Expecially if you’re able to bring in some new business, or expand some existing businesses.

A lot of Product Management material I’ve seen has been pretty “how to get the job” focused. Anyone have any insight/reading materials that are centered on the actual job and tactile information on succeeding in your new role? I feel like I’m just winging it most times and want to follow a framework, at least starting out, that I can flex here and there.

I just needed to say this somewhere so here it is: one of the reasons my ex dumped me was because I wasn’t “high energy enough” and couldn’t stand hanging out until 2am every night. Now I can sleep as early as I want, and every time I go to sleep at like 9:30pm it feels so rebellious and liberating.
