Nurse with 4 years experience. What is the first step to get started on this career path?
Hi there! I looking for a fully furnished 1 bedroom/studio in Boulder for the summer. I am thinking July through mid September, but also flexible. I’d like it to be walkable to pearl street and have a good wfh setup. Thanks so much.
Police officers need to be held accountable. This is just so unacceptable for people that are supposed to be protecting and serving https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/jul/14/revealed-phoenix-womans-brutal-police-assault-shown-on-body-camera-footage
It’s absolutely contrarian that this show up on a job application. If we are trying to get away from labeling people, then let’s get away from labeling people. Especially when it goes into very personal specifics. What’s next: Out of 50 shades of gray, which number are you? Or: If gay, please specify bottom or top. (Let’s say I’m versatile, which do I choose!?) Oh, methinks I’ll just stay unemployed then.
It seems like LA is superrrrrr dead and quiet right now. Would it be best to make the jump to NYC? Things are definitely moving on the east coast.
After two consecutive excruciating RFEs on my H1B extension, mine is finally approved today!!! Thank you for the support from this team and good luck to the ones who are waiting!
Hope everyone is staying warm! I would recommend using the “hotel tonight” app if your looking for a room with electricity, heat, and wifi.

Would anyone be interested in getting help with interview prep? I know so many people that struggle with interviewing. I have heard a number of people mention that they have ADHD (which I do as well) and that has caused them a lot of difficulty in interviews which made me wonder if that is something that would be helpful and useful to people. I would love some insights and feedback!
Has anyone left consulting recently? What was main reason for you doing so? I’ve been considering it for the past two years and I think it’s about time..
Hi, I've been meaning to apply to the FAANG RPM programs and similar but have been facing a tough time getting shortlists. Could you guys please help me with some resume tips and suggestions; and possibly some constructive criticism on how my current one is (attaching herewith)? Google, Uber, Spotify, Visa, Facebook (Meta) RPM/APM to name a few. Thank you!
Any advice for someone who wants to transition from creative to pm. Ive had a lot of “unicorn” roles where i was acting as both designer and project manager and im looking to transition fully away from being on the creative end.
What’s a better long term career move: data scientist or product owner? What will open more doors, what will be better to have experience in 10 years from now?
Where to start when considering opening your own firm? I’m so overwhelmed and have no clue where to even begin. I’m in the info. gathering stage and there’re too many conflicting ideas on the web. Any suggestions on how you went about the process? Any help is much appreciated. TIA!
Dated a girl for a month and now she says she does not feel the same way I do. I’m shattered. She says I am too much of a nice guy she’s not interested into.
Is there no place for being a nice gentleman? I believe I will die single then. It really hurts letting go of someone you develop feelings for.
Any tips/resources to improve leading teams or unofficial “direct reports?”
My time in the workforce has historically had me at the bottom of the totem pole. However, in the past few months I’ve had a few new additions to my team that look to me for guidance, feedback, or delegation of tasks.
I know I struggle to delegate because I get tasked with many ad hoc items that require a quick turnaround and I feel that I don’t have the time to show/train/QA their deliverable.

Anyone know of anything (books, sites, etc) that is helpful for generating tactical or “360” executions for a concept? It’s my weakest skill and I want to work on it.
I’m helping an initiative to stop Asian hate relaunch their website and social next month. Amazing mission and founder! I’d LOVE some help with a few hero illustrations celebrating the community. Could possibly turn into posters to hand out as well. No $$$, but good vibes and free press here and in Asia! DM me if you have the time and interest!!
So after spending 7 years in the industry, I no longer wanna be part of ad world. It’s years of work to get 1 decent campaign out. Also, being CD would have me doing lot of just managing which I don’t want. I’m thinking of being a independent motion graphic designer/artist. Any tips from people who’ve transitioned or are on the same boat?
What are interview questions YOU ask when you are honestly trying to figure out if you'd like it there?
I got an introduction to an ECD through a mutual connection and he wants to chat. Are there other reasons he’d chat besides employment possibilities? It’s a place I didn’t see myself standing much of a chance of getting into.
Creative Directors, do you concept on briefs? Maybe just to get a sense of what you’re looking for?
Anyone at 72andSunny NY who’d be willing to get a coffee with someone from a smaller agency nearby? My treat, obviously :)
Anyone ever won a bunch of awards (lions, clios, pencils etc) and not been personally recognized publicly or privately by creative leadership?
If you don’t like this job, industry or agency, what makes you stay? I’m generally wondering why people would do such a thing. Life’s too short to do something you don’t love, no?
How do you deal with Impostor’s Syndrome and insecurity? I recently joined an agency as ACD, and sometimes I feel like I am not as good as my team… My teammates are so intelligent and quick. Also, feeling like I have to prove myself to earn their respect stresses me a lot. Sometimes I rather don’t talk, which I know isn’t helpful. Any advice on how to boost my confidence and show them that I deserve a space there?
Got fired today. All my above the line work got positive nods. My CD was overly picky about every word in my email blasts and collateral. I’m sure that’s what did it. Luckily I have a produced radio spot, another on the way, and tv spot being shot this month. Any advice?
“It’s always the people who really love advertising who are the worst at advertising” 😂
Always wanted to be an agency Creative, but now I’m considering directing. Still fairly young (30). Is this an unrealistic dream? How does one go about It?
When recruiters say “We are not hiring at the moment, but will keep you in mind for future opportunities.” How soon do you follow up? A month? 2 months?
How was your first month as a jr AD? What kind of work did you do? Genuinely curious.
CWs are more than welcome to share their experience too :)
