Seriously, QC only blocks out ambient noises not stuff like a crying baby. So much misinformation about QC on this app. 🙈

A friend of mine is in her 40s and had kids early and now they’re in college. We have a woman boss, also in her 40s who is now planning to have a baby as she was busy building her career. The boss has been targeting my friend in meetings, jokingly saying she’ll hire her as a nanny, calling her ‘grandma’, etc. My friend is very upset but afraid to complain for fear of retaliation. I’m shocked that this is happening at a Big4. Any advice on how to handle this?

Two choices. Make a lateral move and cut my teeth at one of the most iconic ad agencies in LA or get bumped up to senior at a startup branding shop in the Bay Area? For context, I’m a midlevel writer in San Diego who’s pretty much on the cusp of a promotion. About 3.5 years of experience.

My firm has become very short staffed in recent months with work increasing. A partner called to tell me they are depending on me this year, but I also have a few 2nd round interviews lined up this week. Should I feel guilty for leaving the firm during this time?

I’ve applied to over 40 jobs since I was laid off in March. Not one click to my portfolio, per analytics. With a family of four, we are being spread thin. Not only is the income desperately needed, but my creative soul needs a release. I would be happy to do typical Art Director work but I’m “over qualified” for that and am never taken seriously when applying for work below CD/ACD. If anyone needs or know of any company needing freelance work, large or small—I’d really appreciate the lead. 🙏

PSA: reminder to schedule a day or two off in the upcoming weeks for a 4 day weekend (heck maybe even an entire week). It can do wonders for alleviating stress. Today I’ve gotten my oil changed, taken my dog to the vet, cleaned up my unibrow & have a facial scheduled. The rest of my day will be applying to jobs. I’ve only checked my email once and it feels so ridiculously good not to be tied to a laptop Monday morning. Take that time off ladies!

I’m a single mom. My manager is 65 & no kids & once or twice has made offhand comments. Eg on Presidents Day she was angry as both I & the tax preparer who works in my team asked to work remote as there was no school that day. Generally my employer (I am in industry) has been very flexible over working remote during this Covid time. It got me wondering if being a single mom is going against my career too. I am probably overthinking it but would welcome thoughts from single & moms with partners.
