Do you work on decks all the time? Get ready if not, that’ll be your day to day. Spent 6 years in media publishing and Marketing’s (which I presume this role would sit under or work in tandem with) sole focus at most of the big publishing houses is to help close deals via building decks and presenting sellable ideas and opportunities to the sales team and occasional client.

Damn. Was lucky enough to land an interview. The interview went numerous rounds, it was super positive, so then I decided I would be 100% honest about something I wasn’t good at, in hopes of being clear that I was ready to grow. Then I got ghosted, and I think it’s because of the said honesty. Feeling low and stupid for ever admitting a “fault” in an interview instead of just telling them that I’m perfect.
