Moving back to the US and looking for a job. I want to know if my book is up to international standards. No need to be gentle.
Any CDs from Barkley here?
Recently started in-house from private practice, a few months in. New company has had 2 rounds of layoffs since I resumed. I’m getting nervous. Should I be looking to jump ship? I feel my role is valuable to the company but the layoffs have been indiscriminate. Great performers, ok performers, new employees, older employees! I have a family to support and can’t afford to be out of a job in the coming months. Any advice or similar past experiences?
I am joining thoughtworks Hyderabad location on June 15 . Can anyone tell me about the work timings.

How does the quality of analysis and deliverables compare across firms like ClearView, LEK, Trinity, Health Advances, ZS, etc.? Are some firms better overall or does it just depend on what team you happen to be working with?
Any best practices out there when it comes to compiling monthly ATS analytics?

Rolex enthusiasts, could you please help me out? How can I know the size of this OP (without going back and asking the AD)? I’m guessing it’s a 36 but maybe there’s something about the dial that only one of the sizes has?
Seems about right... 🤣🤣🤣
What does it mean if you get feedback such as “know the room better?” I came across a team email that was addressed to my account team, and I approached my boss about my response to it. Then he gave me this feedback and told me not to engage in the conversation. Funny thing is a strategy lead just responded back to the team with the exact response I came up with, and my boss agreed with her...

Hi! I’m looking for examples of copywriting portfolio websites. I don’t quite know where to start showing my work and need inspiration. Please share yours below!
Thanks much ☺️
Can any freelance copywriters share what their hourly rate is?
I transitioned from full-time agency copywriter to part-time freelance copywriter (and full-time mom) 4 years ago. I have 13 years of experience. I've never raised my rate and it's time, but I'm out of touch with what is typical. I would be so grateful for your input!
Shout out to everyone who’s ever had a white paper to “copyedit” that they just ended up rewriting entirely. I’m there today.
Anyone want to start a fiction writers group with me in nyc? I just got through the 4th draft of a novel and would love some no-bullshit criticism of it. DM me.
I was approached to write some radio spots for a small client.
This would be a small project on the side of my agency job. Nothing too crazy.
I have zero freelance experience and don't know what to charge!
Does anyone have a sense of a project rate for this type of work?
When presenting brochures or anything with long-form copy to the client, do you prefer to read through the copy as part of the presentation, or just describe what’s going on with the copy and move on? In either case, the clients will always read the copy offline after the meeting.
Who's hiring creatives in NYC?
Out of real, good paying work since November 2018. I’m depressed humiliated and furious. I get calls from recruiters an average of 3 times a week. I’v been ghosted more times than I can count. WTF????
Stop. Doing. This.
Hi! I would love recommendations on how to be a better writer. I know in order to be a good writer, you have to read a lot of good writing. Ironically, this makes me much more insecure about my own writing and leaves me sounding very stiff and inauthentic. I'm wondering if there are more tangible resources than just reading. Specifically around finding confidence in your own voice, style and way of storytelling.
I’ve wanted to leave my agency for a while and it’s gotten even more toxic during the pandemic. How bad would it look on my resume if I just left to freelance? I’m beyond burnt out and have a good amount of savings.
How do I become a bounty hunter?
Struggling to price myself (for a raise) at my small in-house “agency” . Doing ACD-level work with massive creative control and responsibility, reporting directly to VP of communications + VP of creative, but I’m (currently) the only writer - so no direct reports.
Currently hold “copywriter” title, 5 years of experience (all in-house), located in NYC but company is fully remote.
Is anyone here a copywriter/strategist hybrid role?
I’ve been asked by my boss to send him some portfolio sites of art directors we might want to work with. Are there any directory-type websites/search terms people find helpful? I’m new to this.
I'd like to practice writing tv as much as I can, even outside of work. I'm not motivated enough to write scripts on my own. I'd like to volunteer writing tv ads for a non-profit or something similar. Does anybody know of a site for something like this?
