"Why do you work here?" - probably the best question I've ever been asked. Didn't have a decent answer. So I left soon after.

To lighten the mood I’ll let them know I’m going to ask them a few weird questions like “if you were a kitchen utensil what would you be” or “what’s your favorite kind of tree” Just to see if they have a sense of humor and don’t mind being asked a dumb question. (Which they’ll be getting from clients a lot lol)

Ask them what their favorite piece of modern advertising is (last 3 years). You get a sense for their style and what they like.

I am currently unemployed but I am very curious about everyone’s company signature having she/her or he/him or they displayed. Are companies forcing people to write the pronouns you need to choose?

It seems political. What are your thoughts?

Ok so found that an employee was getting family posts added into a large multi-national clients IG social channel stories.

No matter the situation as a steward of the clients social strategy and channels you don’t promote employee or family business there. Am I wrong? Seems like also something that should be easily understood.

I am interviewing for a new role and often get asked about a few clients/projects that I did not manage or work on in a day to day capacity. As the department head I gave my team a lot of autonomy to lead their projects, and outside of weekly check ins, I only got involved during RFP stage and when issues came up. I knew in broad strokes what they were working on but wasn’t approving deliverables. So when interviewers ask about these sexy projects we did, I am usually very honest ... (cont)
