It’s been a grueling 18 months, for everyone. There’s a unique story I’d like to share and it’s my own but I have to believe it’s not only mine. I was privileged enough to be able to WFH during the pandemic and change jobs to a fully remote job during this time. The isolation has become so complete, with the lack of connection and professional rapport or daily respect/clarity thru slack convos and sporadic zoom - I’m at an all time mental low barely able to start this Monday morning.

I also think we are all less present because our minds are full of worry and despair. It’s hard to focus on work when the world is burning…

One thousand percent. I love that everybody is looking forward to a hybrid model, but miss the office interactions, and being in person. It’s incredibly tough, as a CD to Instil that sense of team building when no one is present.

I currently work in hardware technical sales as a Senior Sales Engineer, OTE $110-120K with 1.5 YOE. Industrial automation equipment for a large player in the space. Software sales seems appealing due to remote work, more flexion, and higher pay comps.

Any advice on how I should start to structure/build my experience for a move? Anyone have similar experience in switching and have recommendations on companies I should target?

Hi, I'm an employee at a hotel chain who works remotely. I've been working remotely for over a year now and I love it! The company I work for is very supportive of remote workers, which is great.

But there's one thing that's been bothering me: it's hard to get feedback on my work when I'm not in the office. It would be great if there was some kind of system that let me know how my performance was being evaluated while I'm working on projects from home.

Additional Posts in Mental Health in Advertising

I'm really struggling. My company just furloughed some staff and I'm beating myself up about it. I keep thinking maybe there was something I could have done better to get the right kind of leads or maybe I made the wrong call on a pitch that could have brought in enough business to save people's jobs. Anyone else have these feelings? I know its survivor's guilt, but I feel like I've let my coworkers and their families down.

There are days like this when I deeply regret having chosen advertising as a career. I had the opportunity to study other careers that offer more stability in the long run and probably a better sense of purpose, but instead decided to go with something that seemed “fun and exciting”. Very immature choice. I wish somebody had warned me. If you are young, it’s not too late to change careers and do something else.
