It’s really frustrating when you get staffed on a project for your “industry expertise”, yet the manager with 0 industry experience, continues to ignore your suggestions.

How do you handle these situations without coming across as combative? There is always rework and my original suggestions are eventually considered after several deliverable reviews & revisions.

I’ve built a good rapport with the client and sometimes I just want to tell them of the situation 😔

Not seeing many openings for junior ADs at the moment, which is understandable. So I’ve been wondering if I could potentially pivot to land a different role for the time being.

Some of these roles I’m considering are:
Multimedia Designer

Video Editor
Photo Editor

Should I be marketing myself as a junior AD with these skills and apply for different roles?

Did a full round of interviews for a role and was told another candidate was chosen. Recruiter said the senior manager really enjoyed our convo and thought i would be a better fit for the sr. analyst role she manages so I did another interview with the hiring manager. Conversation went great but was all cultural based and no technical questions were asked. Has anybody had experiences similar to this? Was wondering how I would be compared to other applicants if no technical questions were asked?

This may not be the right bowl but I figured I'd just ask anyway 😁 I am considering a move to DC / Virginia area for personal reasons. How different / similar is it to NYC? I've been down there before and I like that you can get a much bigger place with all amenities, esp in VA, for the same price I'm paying in NYC. There are good restaurants there too. But ppl keep saying it'll be a big shock for me to go from NYC to there. Would love to hear from those who have lived in both places. Thanks!
