Take account people (particularly those who seem to have good relationships with others in the agency) out for 1:1 coffee. It can be 10 minutes but just ask them questions. And let them feel good about what they know. With any luck they’ll shed some good light on the role/agency for you and worst case it’ll at least cause them to feel good about you. (We like to talk about ourselves & our experience 🤷🏼‍♀️) .

No harm in beginning networking efforts now, especially if you know what city you want to work in. Reach out to folks in Acct Mgmt or HR and express an interest in meeting with them to learn about their agency. This goes without saying, but do some research ahead of time to get familiar with the work they do and who their clients are. Even if you’re not 100% sure what direction you want to take, have a perspective when you meet these folks. Nothing is more disappointing than someone who waits around for someone else to guide their career and give them all the answers. Also, there’s no telling if you’ll love the agency you intern with. Start building your network now. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain

Honestly network the fuck out of your agency. If there are HHs like Publicis or a bar like BBDO go hang out and meet people. Learn about other disciplines too

Begin looking immediately. It may take months.

I just started working at a Digital Strategy Consulting Boutique firm but the company is in Europe and we work in another language entirely. I started off as an intern (8 months) and now I am working full time. I am trying to learn the language to be more interactive with the clients and in the meetings but it's super difficult. Should I switch or learn the language and stay here for another year? It's a small firm and the pay is not that great but good for beginners in the country. Any advice?

How soon is too soon to be preparing for a lateral move? I did my 1L summer internship in a niche area of securities law, loved it, took courses on it.

I’m afraid that I am passing on a passion, and I don’t want to get too “old” for a firm to take me on if I have zero experience in a specialty area. Advice? Thx
