Consulting as a mixed bag. Some plan share all the credit, invite us to meetings, and make us present. Those are good clients. On the other side there are clients who have all the credit, use our insides, and leverage them for their own self. You have to take all those in your stride.

If they’re using your insides...time for a new client. Or a hashtag metoo

I’ve had 2 phone interviews so far. Last Friday I was told I’m moving forward to a video interview and portfolio review with the hiring manager. If that goes well, I assume I’m doing the loop. (Why is this process so long? 🤪) I haven’t heard back from the scheduler yet. How long does it typically take to get scheduled for a video interview and then for the loop?

Would it be seen as a downgrade to go from agencyAD to presentation designer?

I’m wondering if I’m in the wrong position. I thought I was used to throwing out a fuckton of ideas + animating them + getting shot down a ton, but I’m only getting more and more miserable as time passes.

I feel like my energy is getting wasted and would be happier focusing on slides and presentations only, but I’m afraid it’ll hurt my career trajectory. But I also heard presentation designers make a lot. Thoughts?

- I’d normally be fine with this given that it was a surprise upgrade, but what irks me is that the HR rep gave me the range of 115 to 125k and then asked if 115k is okay

Been in a relationship for a few years...but this can't be what love feels like. Most days I just feel incapable of romantic love altogether. On a couple occasions, I think I may have felt it for another, but I'm pretty sure this is just initial infatuation bound to fade when I know the complete person...so why chance stability.

Has anyone ever felt the same? I don't know if it's a character flaw or just psychological or something else 🤷‍♂️ Feels isolating to not experience part of being human

I'm 41 and don't know what to do? Is it too late to get out of manufacturing and start over. I'm a project manager. I would love advice. I really think my passion is gone.
