6 months is long enough that you should at least being starting to find a groove.

It's probably worth bringing up. I've certainly seen people hired to work together split up, or people hired to work with someone ask for new partners.

Are there readily available options? I wouldn't expect them to hire someone new for you.


If that's not possible then you're SOL and will have to tough it out. How long has it been since you've worked with this person? Has it been long enough for you guys to find your groove?

The only reason I would assume they'd let you go is if your partner is well vested in the company and they had no other choice or option, and/or if you flagged it too soon into your time there. Some companies, if they have a department that cares enough, will try to move you around and have you work with different partners.


Also my imposter syndrome is real as fuck so i totally get when you say you feel like there's something wrong with you. There isn't. It's just some people don't mesh well, and it's hard to find out until you actually spend hours and hours together. No 1-hour interview where you're being all polite and excited for each other can determine that type of stuff. Don't be discouraged! You made it this far in your career so you'll be fine. (This is also advice to myself, heh).


How long have you been there?

half a year

CDs, do you like seeing long copy in a Jr or student book? Have a piece of work from school I never had an AD mock-up that was well written and reviewed.

Could you define copywriting, or a copywriter's job in one or two sentences? As a junior I sometimes get the feeling that everyone has a differtent view on what exactly it is that a copywriter does, and a lot of agencies expect something different. Do they just write? Do they concept and use their writing to make clear what they concepted? Curious what you think!
