Just turned down a job opportunity that wanted me to do a crazy case study/data analysis task at the HR screening stage (haven’t even met the hiring manager yet) and I don’t feel bad at all ✌🏼✌🏼✌🏼

At the HR screen is the only crazy part of this post. I can’t imagine hiring someone beyond entry level without understanding their output in a controlled way. It’s not free work... it’s ensuring a poor hire isn’t made.

@Director 1 I totally agree with you. I meant to say that most of them aren't doing what they're supposed to and that's why sometimes poor hires are made.

Happened to me a few times. In Chicago. And in Pittsburgh. Huge red flag. Those agencies utilize you pre-hire and never end up following through with the hiring process

If you want a poor hire, don’t pay your candidates for “tests” #nofreework

Eh I used to scoff at the idea of case studies like this then I interviewed for my dream job on the client side and they asked for one. It took a few hours after work for a few days and now I couldn’t be happier. I guess if you want it bad enough you’ll do it. If you aren’t willing to do it, you probably don’t want the job that much.

I don’t really have much patience for people who have no meeting rsvp etiquette. I understand that it’s just business but if you can’t attend a meeting just let me know especially if the meeting is for you. And if you continuously miss it then i won’t try anymore.

I’m looking to create a virtual war room for a large scale broadcast campaign that our creative team is starting to develop concepts for, but everything I’ve been looking into (google docs, Dropbox, Miro) just doesn’t quite measure up to the physical space we’re used to using in our office. Anyone have luck working with a digital platform that they’d recommend?

How do you get recruiters to give you a salary band for a job? Every time I ask they dance and say, “oh money won’t be an issue.” and ask me for a number first.

I’ve always wanted a job (or so I thought) where I got consistent feedback that was more than “you’re doing a great job” or “keep doing what you’re doing”. Now that I’m actually getting the constructive feedback I hoped for I find myself becoming less motivated when I hear it and feeling overwhelmed when I try to figure out how I can do better. Advice?

I have been in PA calls all day, both C & M. There is a lot of tough discussions, but I would not call it a “Blood Bath”. Most, if not all, CCs were well prepared and advocated for their counselees. Keep your head up.

Has anyone tried the idea of swapping creative teams with another company’s in-house team for a one-off project? Thinking it would be nice to give the creative teams a change of pace by working a different brand.
