Looking for your thoughts on the job hunt - how hard do you all work on crafting the perfect application? Do you tailor each one or just shoot out resume + portfolio to as many relevant/intriguing positions as possible? Note: I'm looking for more senior level positions both in agency world and in-house.

I'd like to but I usually don't unless the position just seems perfect and it's clear what they are looking for. Much of the hiring process is byzantine and poorly managed. For that reason I do my best to grow my network and pick my shots via connections or very good recruiters.

Thanks for the thoughts SP1!

Tailor resume and which clients I show per industry. Cover letter changes the most per role and company. But per SP, always go with a connection or recruiter. Even if that's just Twitter.

The manager in on my engagement has a bad reputation for treating staffs badly. I found out that many staffs felt uncomfortable with the manager’s style of communication as well as always blaming on staffs instead of taking responsibility. For example, a staff sent out the sample selections and manager reviewed it but later found out that there was an error but instead of taking responsibility, the manager blamed the senior who had nothing to do with the selection process.

Anyone else starting to feel nervous about the extra $600/week unemployment going away? Also, is it just me or does it seem stupidly misguided that the Senate/WH prefer to send another stimulus check instead of extending unemployment benefits? Stimulus checks go to a much smaller subset of the population and aren't necessarily going to help those impacted by COVID layoffs. Not to mention the argument that it disincentivizes people going back to work is dumb when there are no jobs to return to.

Hey all. Seeing a lot of posts here of people sharing their "books". As a marketing strategist looking for a new opportunity, what is essential to include in a book? My work isn't exactly flashy like a designer's might be. Should I put some of my case studies together? Do you all host your books online? Any tool recommendations for creating these?
