Is there a status challenge I can do on United?

I believe there is if you check dnet, but I think it's not all that great. Maybe half the normal segments and miles? You get United silver if you are Marriott platinum or now SPG platinum once you link your accounts.

I had a really weird interview for Creative Director today. It’s a small startup.

They made some affirmative noises then said the next step would be a design test (one pager) which I would present to a panel of interviewers including the CMO. Anyone else think this is odd?
