I’ve been taking night classes, working on two side projects, handling my day job, and applying for jobs and I just feel like I’m never gonna break into the “big” agencies. 😢 trying to stay hopeful.

I used to be at a smaller agency and always longed for that big agency vibe, but now that I’m here I’m realizing it’s so insanely political and I’m losing the love of the biz. Double edged sword!

Try to get with a startup of founders that came feom one of the big agencies. You might have a better experience anyway. The big agencies aren’t always the best agencies.

Might want to cut down on all the other side things you have going on and focus more on landing an interview and polishing you book. Big agencies aren't everything but they're a good place to cut your teeth, look good on resumes, and are full of potential future contacts. Everyone on here that says they work at big agencies and don't think it's a big deal, you only feel that way because you already work at a big agency. Basically you're taking it for granted. It's like when people who've won some awards say winning awards isn't a big deal. Anyways, just keep reaching out to recruiters and CD's, big agencies are very bureaucratic so it takes time and sometimes the timing is just off, i.e. recent client loss/win, hiring freezes, etc.

Big agencies aren’t all that. Been in them for over 2 decades. The politics are horrible.
