You should schedule a meeting w your ECD and pitch yourselves for the higher title and raise. Try to find out what that level makes in your market. List all your accomplishments. How you’d make the most of the new role. Tell him you’re ready to move up. If he says no, start looking at either shops or client side.

(2/2)…fly in two new interviewees who are both white dudes. To add to our team of all white dudes. The two of us have a “meet and greet” chat with the first one this week but I feel like I’m crazy biased. We’re a small agency, and nowhere near to a major city, so obviously we struggle with attracting talent in general, but I’m just like… seriously? Am I overreacting here? How do I check my bias? Or smile until I can jump ship?
