Question--a recruiter reached out via LinkedIn for a strategy position at a creative brand studio in NY. They want to see work samples but all of the strategy work I have are under strict NDAs and I honestly think any future work I produce will likely be the same. I suggested that I could create speculative work based on mock scenarios/clients but I'm not sure that landed with them. How do I go about showing my work and thinking with these kind of restrictions?

What are realistic career paths for BDRs that do not want to be an account executive? I have been a BDR for 4 years now and looking to get out of sales but unsuccessful so far .

Beginning to think I’ll just have to accept a career that I hate that brings me no passion and try for AE role. My ideal role would be in product marketing or social. Any advice?

Hey Ladies - my fiancé is trying to move to Boston or New York in the next few months, but his field is pretty niche in finance (long only investing). He works at a mutual fund in Chicago, and has been putting feelers out. We both feel that more postings will open up in January, but if anyone has some insight on recent job openings that might be a good fit, I’d love to know so I can point him that way. A chance to connect him with someone would also be extremely helpful! Long distance is hard.
