Is the 4A’s Institute of Advanced Advertising Studies program recognized within the industry? I finished the program last week but I can’t tell if it matters for job prospects

Going to vary. Personally, I don't care at all about 4As certificates. If anything, it's good practice working around petty territorialism where none of the students know what they're doing, half of them THINK they do, and they all complain about each other.

I guess it's pretty similar to an agency project.

I care. Shows me your management values you enough to nominate and pay for your growth.

Yes

I did it a while back as a junior and our team won the challenge so I had it on my resume for a while. But nobody ever asked about or commented on it so not sure.

If you're a creative, it may as well be the 4H club. We're looking at your work not clubs and associations. I have no idea how account management views it. Overall, it's going to be seen as "cute" by big agencies in major markets.

So, in some cases if not most, your ideal job/ career is about who and what you know, besides experience. With that being said, if anyone has any information regarding open positions within the financial field, starting with the base salary being no lower than 50,000, please share!

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

The person I’m seeing has been responding to my texts days later (only a recent development) and it’s making me anxious. They have been busy the past two weeks with PhD exams and their last message was them planning when they could see me again (in a really flirty way too), so logically I know the delay is not a sign of disinterest. But I have an anxious attachment style (if that’s not obvious) and my therapist is on leave right now, so I’m struggling. Do any of you have any advice?
