Yeah now I understand why my senior used to send me some of the tedious review notes that she did. I also realize that she didn't have to be such a bitch about everything though.

Lololol. Wait until you're the only one leaving review notes like "you said x agrees to the PDF. Please indicate the PDF name and page number" you're not going to want to go find that shit yourself

The situation: New CPG client is running media on social and digital for the first time and needs to answer to higher ups, “Is it working?” However, there are no historical or category benchmarks and we are in the brand awareness/audience building phase; they understand that we will do retargeting later. They do not want to drive online conversions on their website. We will have some sponsored product advertising (ex. Instacart) later on. What am I missing??

I studied SCM in college but I’ve been working through tech implementations on the ptp side for about 4 years now - it’s been all indirect client work though and no supply chain. How tough is it to pivot to more process and supply chain based strategy projects - do I need to get my mba. At a smaller firm now and feel like I’d have to jump to an Accenture to actually have the ability to do that kind of work (logistics and trade optimization, planning, manufacturing)
