Looking to connect with a recruiter (or anyone) that’s familiar with strategist / brand manager roles. I feel a bit lost and hoping for some advice on job search and feedback on my resume

Instead of focusing on connecting with a recruiter, connect with people who are in the types of roles you want to be in. Talk to them about their career path, what they do on a daily basis, what skills they look for, etc. and that should give you a better idea of what your resume needs to look like. Recruiters can help somewhat, but you’re better off talking to people who have actually done the job you want to do. There’s a Strategy bowl, that’s a good place to start.


that’s a much better idea haha thank you so much! really appreciate the advice :)

Picked up a 114060 Sub from an AD in TX. Been hunting one for a long time. Once went into an AD in my hometown, and left after the rep and I talked about me possibly wanting something else. Got a phone call 5 minutes later from the rep, who said I could have a Date/Cyclops sub that was hidden in the back, since I obviously wasn’t trying to re-sell. Passed on it. Been passionate about this model for a minute. Happy hunting :)

2 . How much time it takes to get first project?
I am confused because it’s really better salary than what I make.

Additional Posts in Ask A Recruiter - Advertising

Hi all,
To my talent acquisition professionals. Aside from LinkedIn recruiter and Cord what other platforms do you use for tech sourcing?

Excluding agencies like W+K, BBDO, Droga..., why do recruiters and CDs ask questions like “what’s your goal as a human in life?” or “how would you change the world?” when they KNOW they just need an average creative, to make more average campaigns for average clients?


Recruiter to Recruiters: Do you/have you ever told a candidate you will not work with them because of their bad reputation? Do candidates have a right to know their name has been tarnished?

I’m trying to help a friend start a career in the advertising/marketing industry. He’s got a media and production degree, but looking for something entry-level that would give him the opportunity to explore what different departments do.

I was thinking maybe community manager roles would be a good start, but they all seem to be looking for 5+ years.

Any suggestions? Anybody that might be willing to have an informational conversation with him?

Are there recruiters for editors ?

Interview question: had a great interview with the cmo of a brand I’m really excited about for an ECD role. She mentioned there was a take home assignment, which usually is a dealbreaker for me but I want the gig. The hr person sends it to me, and it’s not one but TWO Full 360 campaigns, one brand one product. I’m currently still full time at an agency working insane hours (hence the desire to escape).anyone know the play here? Do I STFU and figure out how to get it done? Can I push back? HLP!


Interviewing is worst than dating. Had an intro call with HR at my dream company on Thursday, who said he’d schedule next steps. Sent a thank you note on Fri. Too early / eager / pathetic to followup?

I have my first interview tomorrow for a new job - I’m currently still at the agency I got my first job at (it’s been 2 years & I’ve had 1 promotion, for reference). My question is - can they ask me how much I’m currently making? If so, can I lie? Can they ask for proof? I’m grossly underpaid right now (way below average and even below minimum for my role) so I’ll be asking for a hefty increase, but don’t want them to know just HOW hefty, because I feel like it’ll put me at a disadvantage.


Hey recruiters, what’s a good subject line? I’m always struggling with that one


Hello everyone,
I have recently moved to Long Beach, CA and I am currently looking for a Recruiting Coordinator or Technical Recruiter role close by. I am also open to hybrid or remote jobs.
5 years of HR and Admin experience, masters in business and management and currently reading towards my SPHR. Also looking for someone well experienced in the field to serve as a career mentor.
Any advice, criticism or suggestions will be appreciated.
Thank you.


I'm black, but have a very white name and a white speaking voice. I avoid photos/social media stuff/anything that 'outs' me because I like being hired. But should I use a profile pic on my LinkedIn?


Soooo. I’ve had a recruiter tell me about 3 opportunities she thought I’d be good for and I expressed my interest in moving forward and learning more, etc.
Then, I don’t hear from her for over 2 weeks, and she tells me about the same 3 opportunities.....and I expressed my interest AGAIN. And now I haven’t heard from her for another week.
I don’t understand the process? Shouldn’t it be quicker. If she thinks I’m a good fit why hasn’t she set me up to talk to anyone yet?


Is it possible for recruiters to secretly listen in on teams interviews?
