It’s mostly auto. Leo Burnett has GMC and Buick, GTB has Ford (kind of...), Commonwealth has Chevy, McCann has some GM business and some other random accounts, Huge works on digital for FCA. Digitas has a smaller office (the bulk of their office just absorbed into LB) but they work on DOW but they’re pitching too Then you have Doner which has a lot more variety, lots of pitches, lots of work, not a bad option even though they have a reputation. Organic has an office here too.

There’s also Hook Studios - I’m not 100% on what they offer but definitely something to look into!

Having some relationship issues. We’re currently long distance. I’m working and they’re in school. It’s been going well, but there’s an iceberg on the horizon. Their job does not have locations in my city, and I don’t know if I’ll be able to relocate to their city. I’m not sure what to do or how to think about this. Anyone experience something like this?

(Word wall idea...)

Hey, y'all! Wishing you lots of peace with however your school year begins after all of THAT!

I'm changing classroom themes this year, and thinking to try a more interactive, velcro word wall. Our word wall is just...there. I want to make flip chart stories for Language that include blank velcro spaces for our words, so that the kids see me pull and use them in read aloud examples.

Anyone else tried this? I'm hoping for durability through weekly use, here...

Converting on a freelance-to-perm role, and the agency offered $10k less than my low range. I like the people but don’t love the client, and I’ve got enough cushion for a month or two. Do I:

a) feel grateful for a full-time offer during an uncertain time, and just accept?

b) counter with an argument about my existing value to the account, knowing that they probably won’t come up the full $10k?

c) stand firm on my range and tell them I’m prepared to walk if it doesn’t work for them?
