The hiring manager. Just drop them a note acknowledging that it’s a bit unorthodox but you would really like to be considered for that position - and explain why you’re so passionate about it. They’ll be pleasantly surprised.

So I screwed up big time and took an associate role in my current job. I absolutely should have pushed for senior, but I was super eager for a new job and to be back near family. I'm about a month into this job, is it crazy for me to start looking around? I know I could be paid a lot more...

How long did it take you in your career to get real bookworthy projects in your portfolio? I’m a Jr early in my career, fighting to get a good FT role, but have been running into places that’ve said the roles are heavy on website copy, emails and other stuff that I’d never put in there. I want to shoot big but want to be realistic. Been stuck freelancing (some good places) since Covid started and trying to break into full time, but am afraid of getting stuck.

Does anyone have any creative suggestions for providing role clarity within teams. We work diligently to maintain job descriptions and communicate team changes broadly, but our employees are still craving some sort of additional reference point of how positions interact with one another. We have Sharepoint and we’re thinking of putting more job info there next to peoples names and titles. Look forward to suggestions!

Does anyone else find it difficult to ask for time off?

It’s hard because other associates in my department haven’t really taken any time off either (or it has been a day or two sporadically). Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.

Crispin has layoffs a couple of weeks ago. They announced it at a virtual town hall. The CEO did the usual “good people, hard to see them go” routine.

I’m trying to make the jump from agency > platform (not FB…more like Spotify or Twitter etc.).

So it feels weird asking them for a recommendation or referral, but that would obviously be easier than applying on the jobs site... How do I utilize my “network” without making things awkward?
