I work at a medium sized agency right now. I’m starting to feel that I’d like a smaller shop with more responsibility of the work.

Im doing some market research and was hoping for some help with some questions.

Have you ever had a fresh-out-of-undergrad marketing/advertising major reach out to you to ask you about the industry, who don’t realize you aren’t necessarily the best person to talk to since they’re not an aspiring creative? Someone from my alma mater has reached out to me, and I’m always happy to talk to newbies, but I get the sense she wants to do the business side of marketing and I just am not the person to talk to about that.

I'm borderline freaking out. I got a promotion from senior to CD a few weeks ago. I was caught by surprise and going against what i would think it's the normal reaction, i questioned the promotion and told my boss i didn't feel prepared. He said he saw potential and that it would be a good learning curve for me. Now he is out cause of layoffs and i feel like a fraude cause i don't know how to deal with the processes of a production.
