Lots of my ad friends have been laid off recently and are having trouble finding jobs in NYC. Wanted to share to give us all perspective in a place with so much job-hate talk.

ZS fish - when applying, do you actually provide your salary history from the past 5 years? The application says proof of income will be requested during the interview process. This seems very odd so looking for guidance. Thanks!

A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?

Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week. BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.

Anyone else tire of the “plant mom” and “dog dad” me too conversation? It seems to be more frequent.
