Need some advice on how to sell myself for roles that are looking for someone with heavy production experience (TV) when the accounts I’ve worked on mainly revolve around digital banners, in-store promotions.

I’ve heard from mentors that they’d train the right person but still feel I’m working from a disadvantage.

Tell your current boss you want some more diverse experience. If they’re not able to let you help out on other projects, try to get a job at smaller shop working on a more integrated account. Bigger shops will be pickier about specific tv experience. Whatever you do, do it soon bc this shift is important to make early in your career.


Thanks! Appreciate the reply. I have been talking with bigger shops, which is why this is an issue. Maybe I’ll focus back on some smaller shops to gain the experience.

As this generation is the strongest and most resourceful in that family, but also the most exploited.

It’s review season at my agency. I’m struggling with what goals to put down or things I want to learn. Not because I think I’m perfect (ha) but because our job description gets so amorphous as we elevate. I’ve been an Account Director for about 3 years. What are goals that y’all have set or things you’ve looked to learn as you’ve gotten more senior?

I started my first account job in Feb. As a junior account person, do you think I would be hindering my growth if I decide to stay remote? Right now, my team is split across BOS and NY, but I can’t wrap my head around the cost of living in those cities. I’m not opposed to being in those cities for the job opportunities, but I just don’t think I could afford to do so. And truthfully, I don’t know if I want to.

Hi everyone,

I'm going for a role for Account Director and have gone through the interviews with the head of accounts, BD as well as the ECD's. I received the following email at the end of the day:

"You are one of two candidates in the final round.

One thing we haven’t spoken about are your salary expectations. Could you have a think and let me know early next week as well as your employment status (residency permit)."

What would be the best way to answer this response? Appreciate the help


I’ve been a “manager” for a while but haven’t actually had anyone to manage. I’m moving into a new role soon where I will be managing someone. Don’t want to screw it up, any advice?


Hi Account friends! It’s the start of a new year and I was hoping you all could share any book / newsletter / blog / course recommendations that help keep you up to snuff. Feeling a bit stale and like the last year has been a tactical grind. I want to brush up on modern thinking for our industry - the latest and greatest marketing books, strategy perspectives, creative self help, etc. to feel more alive as we start 2022.

Comment your favs and THANK YOU in advance!

Will someone please explain the pharma account management job hierarchy to me? Seems like everyday, someone on here asks something really unhinged like, “what should a jr group supervisor vp executive be making?” And does anyone know how or why the titles in pharma got so far from the industry standards in non-pharma adv agencies? 🤔
