I know these are tuff times, but I wonder if there’s a good consumer-focused / integrated agency hiring senior creatives (ACD/Sr AD). I’ve been looking for new opportunities on LinkedIn, but all I‘be seen is in the healthcare space... I know that is better than being unemployed, but it’s not my cup tea. Any leads?
Any tips for prepping on a move to a new role? Starting new role at Accenture (tech delivery), coming from industry, no idea what to expect. I mostly worked on smaller scale projects, a lot of them internal. I have a month, so can do some prep work (courses, network, books, etc) to not be fully lost. Don't know where to start (client work, all the new technologies used, multiple industries, pure size of the organisation). Also, should I add any of my interviewers on LinkedIn? Is that normal?

Does contributing to 401k beyond the match make sense? You can’t touch it until you’re 59.5. If i were to invest on my own in various etfs Ill pay the 22% tax upfront and then cap gains would be 15% when i sell. I’d have freedom to use that money to invest in real estate. when i pull my yearly salary out in retirement I’d Atleast be in the 22% bracket if not higher. Since the last 3 dem presidents have increased spending like crazy i expect massive tax hikes in the future. Am i wrong?
Do you pay year end taxes on dividends received for holdings in a brokerage account, even if those dividends are reinvested? Is it inescapable that we have to pay taxes on such dividends? Or would the only way to basically hold those positions in a tax deferred/advantaged account (IRA, 401k, etc)?

How much room for negotiation is there on role level when moving to MBB as a lateral? Currently M2 at a boutique founded by ex-MBB partners. We often compete with MBB. Recruiters at each firm have steered me towards joining at Associate (M) /Consultant (BB) level which I believe is common practice for lateral moves. This would likely result in a small pay cut for me, even at A3/C3. All have suggested a 6-12 month window to Manager promotion is possible. Would appreciate some advice, thanks!

My parents are likely going to get divorced - I am worried about my dad. I am fairly confident he has anxiety/depression (I struggle with anxiety and we lost cousin on dads side from suicide) and refuses to get help.

I’m only 24, I work 50 hours a week and cannot take care of him. Extended family members are not in the picture.

Had a consultant complain that I focus too much on formatting and thinks we should stop at good enough when it’s a random meeting/not key deliverable. Two thoughts: 1. Is there such a thing as good enough? I view it as formatted correctly or not and EVERYTHING that makes it in front of the client matters 2. If formatted correctly from the beginning we wouldn’t spend much time coaching and discussing format In a nice way I said suck it up, it’s important. Am I being unreasonable?
