Question about resumes. Do you think it’s enough to just list what clients you worked on or is it best to also give a brief description of what your job entailed at each agency?

DEFINITELY write what you did!! If you just write the brand you worked on, there’s no differentiation between a jr and CD. Also, writing what you did for the brand (increased results, ROI, whatever) gives you leverage in terms of salary. Who would you pay a higher salary to—someone who worked on (brand) or one who increased revenue on (brand) by 20%? You’re selling yourself. Here’s your chance to do it.

Submitted a resume to a recruiter for a job last Monday. They called me within 2 hours and asked to schedule a phone call. The call went well, and they sent me all the necessary paperwork they need me to sign. I signed it within the hour and sent them an email saying I’m looking forward to working with them. Haven’t heard anything back since then. Is that weird? Does the recruiter actually think I am a good fit for the role? She sent me the name of the company and everything.

I grew up with untreated major depression and ADHD. My parents "didn't believe" in mental illness. I don't care for pity, I actually am quite hard on myself and judge myself for not performing at my potential. The only way I am able to get myself to sit down and get to work is conceptualized as grabbing myself by the hair on the back of my head and smashing my face into a curb repeatedly. I am not productive if I'm not that harsh with myself.

I would like advice from high performers on (cont)

I'm an account manager, but want to get better at helping and managing my team. So, I've started doing some of the copywriting myself so I can get a better feel for what's involved, what's needed, and how I can help others improve.
