When you’re applying to jobs or sending your portfolio to folks, is there a good way to ask for more specific, actionable feedback? I’ve had a few people say they really liked my spec work, but without specifics I don’t know which areas to improve or which elements to double down on. Is there a way to loop back and ask for someone to elaborate on their feedback or do you just move on and hope the next person goes more in-depth?

Got a job offer but the pay base is only 5% more than what I make. I’ll be promoted in a few months so I could be possibly making more at my current job. However, this job pays a discretionary bonus and it’s within (think AM/ER) at a MM bank which I’m hoping would get me more corporate strategy/PM jobs rather than my current path on Big4 ERP implantation.
