Just a heads up- Jewish New Years starts tomorrow night, Yom Kippur is next week followed by sukkot. This period of time can be very stressful for Jewish colleagues who are trying to balance work, family and religion. Please be conscience of their schedule. Their schedule might inconvenience your team but they are sacrificing a lot too…

Looking for advice. I started a new job in Oct. and it’s been painfully slow. I’ve just now been put on my 2nd project, plus haven’t connected with anyone at the agency or the work as a whole. I just got offered a long term freelance gig with some former colleagues and know the work and the colleagues will be awesome. I’ll also be making in 4 months what I would make in a year at my salaried gig. Should I jump ship for the freelance job or stick w/ stability? What are some factors to consider?

Ok fishes. I see a lot of recruiters posting about pivoting into HR. I’m in a situation about 90 degrees away from that. Working in a smaller company (150 EEs) and was thrown into HR from Office Manager. I’m looking to move on from the company but I have almost no recruiting experience! I’ve been on hiring committees for RFPs and done reference checks before but nothing else. Do I attempt to move into recruiting or just look for opportunities to build this skill set where I am?

Laid off with most of my team. Really frustrated with corporate leadership in general, watching them protect overhead over employees.

If I had access to capital and RFPs, I’d build a collective of teams to respond to briefs, pay everyone a flat fee for participation, have everyone pitch in competition, and winners oversee execution. Just get rid of all the overhead, bonafide meritocracy. Anyone work at V&S or other crowdsourced agency experiments? Why did they fail?
