Possibly stupid question: does a promotion to ACD help your overall job prospects? I see a fair amount of SrCW job listings and freelance opportunities but seldom ACD/writer. I’m ready to the promotion and would like the raise but I’m honestly wondering if it will only make it harder to take another job one day, or even freelance. Please tell me I’m wrong.

I don’t think so. Maybe with the job listings, but I still hear from recruiters, etc. The reason you don’t see a lot of ACDs freelancing is because when they do go freelance they just give themselves the promotion and call themselves CDs :)

No stupid questions. Always go for the promotion. You will make more money and there will always be open doors for you- don’t worry about the title.

It's a promotion and a 40% salary jump. Isn't it time to start chasing a bit more money? My book is good, but no major awards. Am I making a mistake?

Curious if anyone has advice if I should look for another job.

He’s been a good coach and thinks highly of me. (Contd.)
