Most likely you were requesting to be paid a living wage according to your title and experience so they found an intern willing to work for nothing more than free beer Fridays and billed him or her to the client as a senior creative so they could make money. On a related note, the single ACD and Creative Director are now working weekends to over compensate for the lack of skill on their team b/c the agency won’t make proper hires

Interviews are mostly about chemistry. Your book got you in the door. Maybe it just wasn’t the right personality match? Reasons I’ve failed interviews was talking too much about my current job and what’s wrong or why I’m looking to leave, instead of focusing on the positives about the future role.

You might remind them of an ex. Don’t take it personally. Just keep going.

I was “almost” hired by 4 places until scopes and fees changed. Can’t tell if that’s the new “thanks but no thanks” or if the industry is really just as shitty as it seems right now. You’ll find a place!

You sent follow up thank you emails? Could be change in scope, loss of an account—anything. Keep looking. I usually don’t stop looking for work until someone says “come in Monday”. You’ll definitely find something. Keep going.
