Is there anything specific that an A2 could start doing now that would help secure their job in the case a recession hits and lay offs occur?

Continue building technical and non technical proficiencies throughout the summer. Have conversations with your career coach to be put on challenging and different types of audits throughout the summer/fall. I doubt there is going to be a recession anytime this year.

Cpa and help your company make money by being good at utilizing overseas team

Biggest things you can do: have your CPA, be well utilized and get moderate to good reviews. Poor performers, low utilization and non-CPA will probably go first

Get better at sending things overseas. Saving your firm money during a recession would be a priority when considering who to retain (although I think most firms are understaffed as is, so you're safe as long as you do a good job)

My company won't give my designer the art director title she deserves because of the association of the word "director". I've explained to them an AD isn't a director level job like a CD is, but they're just so hung up on the word that they're not budging, saying that her having a title with the word "director" would be confusing for some. FML.

But, they've said I could give her any manager level title she wants. What title would you suggest that aligns to AD that I can give her?

The only female leaders I’ve had have been fired within 6 months of me being at the company, or left within a week of me being hired.

I’ve checked out Pavilion as a potential place for additional leadership and mentorship, but I feel that I may be stuck in an endless loop of male leaders. To be very clear, I’ve built great relationships with some of my male bosses, but I do wonder if I’m missing something without the potential differentiating perspective.
