I'm one of the best creative at my agency and I won more awards than anyone else during this year. How can I ask a raise (or a bonus) considering the 2020 situation?

Also, I was told to keep a special email folder of emails where someone praised you like they should. That way you can always have more to reference

Yes! I keep one called Wins Only. It has praise from managers, clients and vendors.

Honestly these days, what matters more for internal raises is work sold out of scope + New Biz wins. Aka incremental revenue.

Helps to have other offers, but be clear you’re not giving an ultimatum. You just want to know that you have a path forward where you are.

That's what I usually do, and I'll do an interview tomorrow, but what concerns me is the economic situation. I don't live in the US and the layoffs will probably start during these months.

Let the awards do the talking, no need to say you’re the best. Stay humble and get dat money!

The key (IMO) for most people in advertising is to switch jobs every 2-3 years. Of course, I know people who have been the same place for 20 years and advanced far...but that’s not the norm from what I’ve seen.

Got a job offer but the pay base is only 5% more than what I make. I’ll be promoted in a few months so I could be possibly making more at my current job. However, this job pays a discretionary bonus and it’s within (think AM/ER) at a MM bank which I’m hoping would get me more corporate strategy/PM jobs rather than my current path on Big4 ERP implantation. I’m trying to negotiate but if it doesn’t happen do you think I can find something better or do I do this for a year and exit? I’m 2 YOE

I’m currently a 5th year lit associate at a fairly small firm in a fairly small market. I now feel like I’m at the point where I have to move because I don’t want to spend my career here and because the way our comp is structured basically penalizes women who have children. My concern is what my realistic exit options would be. Has anyone moved from a small firm to something other than another small firm?

I have Spanish speaking clients while my team is English speaking. We want to have real-time English subtitles of the translation during meeting and are trying find a meeting technology (like Teams, Webex, etc) with the feature built-in and/or add-on tech that we can use. Do any of you have recommendations or experience with this? Zoom isn’t an option and we have a human translator who summarizes so we miss the detail.

I decided last week to actively look to leave not only my job but my industry, and felt really good and positive about it. Today I've woken up feeling daunted and unsure about it. Ive sat with it for a while and I think it's because - and some of you can rightfully get your tiny violins out here - I haven't actively applied for jobs since I was a grad. Every job I have had has come from connections or referrals, but now I'm actively putting myself out there, I feel vulnerable.
