My adland exit: I worked in new biz for 8+ years and was burning out. For a while I’d been feeling like a cog in the capitalism wheel and needed a higher purpose than pitch decks! I wanted to work in sustainability to tackle the climate crisis and through a series of moves (AMA 👍), I’m now leading global marketing for an NGO called Forest Stewardship Council. A huge relief. I’m also now hiring a Marketing Manager (true reason for this post). Long shot, but details below if this speaks!

I’m “recruiting” here because I think this would be a great challenge for a mid-weight account, planner or new business person looking to make a switch. There is so much to do for the world’s forests, so I need a talented strategic executor to help our growing organization step up its game massively. The position is based in the Cologne, Germany region (Bonn) on the global team, so relocation would be required. If you’re interested in learning more, I’ll post the job spec. Feel free to message me for more details and/or questions—would love to hear from you. Hope this works! 🌲

Hey fishes I know it's kinda depressing but that's what I am into so it's been months now with Amazon and I've working in a new role learning great stuff but here's the catch I don't have anyone to contact with like people here don't reply if you ask for help and if you even call out like they defend by saying they're busy . Forget favors they don't reply to "hey". I have total 2 yrs of exp so barely saw work culture at office. But I wanna ask is this normal or I'm overthinking.

I feel like there is an easier way to do this on line learning. Same grade teachers at the same school should be one big group. For example: One teacher has the discussion or lecture and does the presentation to all classrooms. One teacher mans the computer to answer questions that come in and handles any tech issues. Another teacher grades assignment and takes role and handles the admin part. Wouldn’t this be easier? Teachers could rotate or just stay in one role.
