So I left my current job for a new position that pays 22k more and is more development than admin work. I was supposed to start on 11/15 and it is now pushed back to 11/30 due to the background check still not being done yet. So I spoke to the recruiter yesterday and she said they can offer a signing bonus of $1,000 and I told her I have to think about it because the 2 weeks of pay I’m out is almost $4,000. Like I quit my job for this. I think they can do better than $1,000 am I wrong?

Currently at a large agency but have an opportunity to jump into freelancing which I’ve been wanting to try. Already have a great first client waiting in the wings. I’d ideally like to also continue to support one of my current agency clients because I enjoy my work with them. I’m thinking the way to do this is asking the agency (rather than the client) to stay on that work as a contractor rather than FTE (don’t want to burn any bridges). Has anyone pulled off something similar? Advice?

An agency I freelance for wants to hire me full-time. They told me for a Sr Copywriter, 100-110k. I countered with 125-150.

I also said I'm interested in a higher-level title - I currently freelance as a Creative Director of Copy elsewhere (they don't have that title at this agency.)

They came back and said yes to the title and to 125, with a 6 month review that could raise it to 145.

Which is good for Sr Copy, but low for CD/ACD level. Don't want to screw myself over. What to say now?


Someone please advice🥺

What is something you want in a partner but is so absolutely ridiculous and can't put it in your profile?

E.g., they must be into manga/anime, but not to the point they drag me to a con to cosplay


In college I had an internship at a Dem Super PAC in DC, and everyone was kind of a d*ck to me, so I wasn't afraid to pull hail mary and maybe burn a few bridges.

So at the end I got 2 offers: 1) World Bank 2) Trump White House.

So I told a colleague my offers, and she freaked out about the Trump one and escalated it to seniors, who bent over backwards to sweeten the Bank offer, introducing connections and giving advice. They played right into my hand, and I accepted World Bank as planned.
