I think it’s not a good place to be right now. Unemployment hitting the city hard. Lots of talented people for few spots.


Which brands?

Spotify, Facebook/Instagram, TikTok

No one knows what they are doing or how they plan to navigate these unprecedented times. There is always opportunity in NYC. It might not be obvious now.

Diagnosed with ADHD at 40. Tried Vyvanse for a couple of months. It works in terms of depriving grogginess, afternoon post meal crash, and suppressing appetite (at times).

However, I still needed help planning/prioritizing my day,  listening and active note taking, and keeping myself accountable. So decided to replace meds with coffee. Also, the fact that most people on meds had to progressively increase their medication over time did not sit well with me. (cont'd)

Is it a fair assumption that all the large HR/Recruiting software (bamboo, dayforce, workable, etc, etc.) uses keywords to match resumes (AI) to the post and not a real person for first glance?

Any advice if I’m a creative thinking of switching to being a creative recruiter? Stupid move?

After several rounds of interviews with creative leaders. I got a verbal offer, and now I have been ghosted for two weeks. What could possibly happen?


How long should I wait between followups? Had a really good interview and sent my thank yous, but it’s been about a week.

I got a verbal offer from a WPP agency today. The role's budgeted salary is 5k less than my desired salary.
The recruiter can get me closer but still not at my desired salary. Otherwise - it would have to go through a long approval process with no guarantee that the salary would even be OK'd.
I'm coming from a small agency, so I could be wrong - but I don't want to sell myself short by accepting the first salary they offer. Do I have any room to negotiate? Or is that risky?


What keywords should I make sure to include in my resumé to appease the auto-sorting software, and which keywords do you perk up at seeing?

Why do recruiters/hiring managers think publisher experience is wildly different from agency experience? A planner in publishing does 85% of the same day to day work as planners at the agency do.
