I started my first real non-internship job and got partnered with a senior writer. I’m having a lot of trouble concepting with them since i start to feel really intimidated and like they’re more like a CD than a partner. Any thoughts on how to get over this?

I was a junior concepting with two CDs on multiple projects because I didn’t have a partner. You just do the best you can. If they have better ideas, see what you can suggest to make it better or different. Do the opposite of their ideas. Or just let them take the reigns if you want. It can be scary for sure, but you’re both trying to get the best ideas possible. Use that shared goal to let go of fear.

hey all, i’m 3 years into my career. some decent work produced, some awards (mostly student). after getting laid off last fall and many many applications and emails sent, I’ve decided to spend time and money on a creative PR stunt to get my dream agencies’ attention. I’ve decided I don’t want to settle any longer, and I’m ready to make the jump to the elite. so people that have made it to their dream agencies: when did it happen for you, what made it happen, and was it everything you hoped for?

Planing on moving to NYC in the next 3 years with my husband.

If I stay at my current job, I’ll be manager by the time I leave for NYC or should I make the jump to B4 soon? Does “B4 preferred” outweigh my chances even if I’m a manager when comes down to it?
