My AD coworker (not currently my partner) just got hired at a new agency and wants to bring me along as his writer. I'd love to join. He told the recruiter at that agency about me and sent my book. I also have another former coworker (creative) who put in a good word for me.

Should I reach out to the recruiter, too? Or is that overkill after two recos? I don't want to be bothersome. But I do want to show interest..

This all happened on Friday, if that matters. Thanks!

We’re dealing with an unreasonable JC landlord and not sure what to do. We drilled some holes into the wall to put up shelves and we speckled, sanded, and painted it before we left.

She’s trying to charge us $450 to fix it even though the job we left is acceptable and hasn’t bothered any of our past landlords. What do we do?
