In my experience most account internships are often “taken” by the children of clients - at least at the past few places I worked. That said, I always think demonstrating individual thought and pro activity is a great way to demonstrate account skills. Pick a client at the agency. Find an article or do some research. Write up something. Share it. It’s good practice regardless.

Also, what is the best way to say this without closing the door fully for the possible future ?

Can someone explain how so many people have competing offers for negotiation? I keep hearing “don’t expect to have a strong case for negotiation unless you have a competing offer”. Wouldn’t that have to line up perfectly with you interviewing for multiple roles at the same time?? An offer has a quick expiration period... or do you negotiate with an expired offer you rejected within the past few weeks.

I really would like to get at least a screening call from PwC ( I really like the company)

All, this is my first post and I just want to share that I passed the first Amazon interview for Technical Program Manager and am heading to on-site virtual interviews! I have 20 years of corporate tech in a traditional F500 company (top 50). The only thing I can say that I like about my current job is the work-life balance and some of the people. But the work itself is soul crushing and the industry is stagnant. To those who are 40+ years old, is it crazy to change now?

I work in a 7-attorney firm with a national presence. Partly because I’m only a few months in, I work a roughly 8-6 day.

We don’t have minimum billable hours so it doesn’t matter much for the firm’s sake but I think I’m missing out on learning the important skill of billing my time. Has anyone ever experienced this?

I posted last week about a job offer I received and whether I should take it or not. I now have another opportunity on the table. I currently make $100k and live in south Texas. Both offers are for $110k plus bonus of around $10k per year. I’m finding it difficult to really increase my salary substantially. This didn’t used to be the case. Every time I’ve ever switched positions, I’ve gotten at least 20% more. Is this common and an issue that most women face or am I going about this incorrectly?
