I thought I really wanted to be a chemical engineer but the reality of the day to day has been disappointing to say the least… is this a common sentiment for a first job? Do I just have to keep going to get somewhere interesting?
Anyone hiring yet or nah?
What lessons, activities, and/or projects have you used with your 3rd/4th and/or 4th/5th Gifted and Talented students during distance learning?

Hey Media Wizards👋🏼 What’s your opinion on resume designs? Do you use a creative design or a more minimal, corporate look?
Who’s leaving Twitter? Our media agency is saying for our brand to stay the course (and not cancel huge upcoming buys) but I feel like the brand can just sit it out. Be organic if you need to/want to but don’t give them money.
Curious how the socials inside agencies are feeling or how you’re advising clients.

Anyone know much about the McKinsey data science test? Reddit says the R portion is package specific, anyone familiar with which packages these might be? Or is it all base R? Thanks folks
Have anyone defined metrics that help identify Sales to Professional Services handoff? Reason for it is we have been identifying a lot of SOWs different from customer expectations.

I am a Junior-Mid level Copywriter who didn't go to ad school but have a book full of produced work (no spec) that I've pieced together the last few years. Is there a way I can make it known (cont...)
Wondering what everyone here thought was a good length for a pitch process?

Interested to hear all your processes :)
Ok, let’s do an advertising version of the other post. What’s an ad and/or campaign you like that most everyone else seems to hate?
Every time I see a gig post that specifies “senior creatives (5-7 years experience)” I’m like, wut? Five years is barely mid-level IMO.
I lead a small-ish creative department at an e-commerce company. My background is in design, branding, and photography, but I’ve taught myself a fair amount of HTML and CSS. Our site’s platform is extremely rigid and constantly handcuffs the design team because we can’t meet executive expectations within these constraints. Because of this, I find myself having to write a LOT of custom code to make things look/behave properly. Is this normal? I’m happy to help, but this is way outside my JD.
The best creative shops in San Francisco?
Does the imposter syndrome ever go away? I’m about four years into my career and I still don’t think I consistently come up with good ideas that people really love. Too often at the outset I fall into the same tropes that I have to dig myself out of, and then end up with half-baked ideas. People seem to like my work, but if the nugget of the idea isn’t mine (even if we hash it out together), it feels like I’m merely riding my partner’s coattails. Anyone feel the same?
Any ADs feel like they’re stepping on toes sometimes early in the ideation/pitch deck phase? I for sure defer on my partner when it comes to crafted copy for scripts, headlines, etc., but I feel like when it’s early on the idea is still an abstract thing living in my brain, and I should be able to do the write-up, or at least guide it. I feel like I’m getting boxed out of my own ideas because “that’s not my job.” Really bumming me out. How do you navigate this?
Did anyone else watch the One Show special awards ceremony earlier? Did you also find it irritating?
Dear creatives,heard today that it’s a lot harder to switch to consumer from pharma, and that you will never really do great work if youre in pharma. I just got my first AD job in pharma. Plz advice
TFW someone starts to reveal their true colors and bad attitude to other people you work with. 👌🏻
Anyone have book/podcast recommendations on creative leadership? Or on leadership/managing in general?
Would anyone be willing to look at my resume and portfolio and give me some feedback? I’m applying for in-house positions and not getting a lot of traction. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
What classic ad campaigns don’t you like or understand why they are perceived as good as they are?
I’ll start the classic absolut vodka campaign. It just says absolut and then any other word with the bottle, I don’t get it.

What are some things you’ve learned when transitioning from being a creative on a team to leading a team of creatives?
Saw the new “Launch it” campaign from squarespace LA office. Well, it’s a 3 min ad so I scrubbed forward after 30 seconds and not sure what’s it about. Does a real consumer really have time to watch a 3 min ad on their social feed? I liked a lot of their previous spots though. The one with John Malkovich was a fav.
