I’m on a 2 month project overseas for my current employer. I’m waiting to hear back from a company I interviewed at. If I get the offer, is it wise to discuss my starting date to be after the project is over?

How do you tiptoe around discussing your previous job in an interview if it was really bad.

I just listened to an interview of a creative director recount their path towards copywriting at a famous ad agency. It could not have been a more textbook case of failing upwards as a white man.

It would seem the only thing you need to make it as an advertising creative is to have lots of not particularly original ideas. Practically every other skill is unnecessary. If you’re a white man.

That this level of mediocrity passes for talent explains why so many agency briefs are so lame.
