If I kidnapped someone from my dream agency, locked them in a basement, created a lifelike mask of their face, put on the mask and pretended to be them, then worked on an award-winning campaign, is it ok if I put that work in my book since I was technically the one who came up with the idea?

Marry someone from your dream agency. Slowly poison them over a few years and graciously take on the work they are unable to take on as they die a slow and painful death in the room over. Upon their untimely demise, you reveal on LinkedIn that you helped your soulmate continue their dream of writing award-winning work. Agency then hires you for PR.

And voilà, you now work at your dream agency, Critical Mass.

Jesus, where did that come from.

It will continue to befuddle me those who have a “dream” agency/company/whatever. Like, you get there, then what? You realize it sucks just like any other job and then…you find another dream? I don’t know, just always seemed strange to me. Think it’s best summed up by a tweet I saw, ‘… I don’t dream about labor’.

But then you wouldn’t be able to post about it on LinkedIn. It’d be like it never happened. Think you need to just steal their whole identity. Get their FB password too.

Currently a Junior majoring in Accounting at Georgetown University and I’m looking for internships and trying to network as much as I can. The recruiting events happen in September but some say to apply as soon as the job gets posted. What would you guys say? I would also really appreciate if you would be willing to refer me at any Big4, Mbb or any consulting intern position in any company? I don’t have a dm option here so if I can reach out to you at LinkedIn, that would be much appreciated

Shout out to the ECDs who tell you to build a deck in any format as there is no template. So you choose Google Slides, not because you love it, but you want it to be universal.

Then a few days later they send you the Planner’s version, or worse, their own version in any other format (Keynote or PowerPoint usually) and tell you to redo all 47 of your slides to fit the new layout.

Should I have asked if there was a template? Oh that’s right, I did.

NGL I'm over overthinking "insights" and "problems" to back up ideas.

I get that ideas don't exist in a vacuum cos they're fun or cool.

I get that we're here to solve for business objectives and ideas need to resonate with people.

But humans aren't that complicated.

And I'm over creatives defaulting to let's shine the light on some underserved community, let's help colored businesses. And I'm speaking as a POC. This lazy typecasting and reduction is as bad as the racial bs I have to face.
