Existing clients, new clients then awards.


Jesus y'all are boring af. It's the same complaints over and over again. A lot of us either don't know how the ad business works or don't care. And you're an executive director.



Prioritizing awards ahead of clients. Lmfao.


Awards, new business, and existing business

New biz, existing clients, awards


Not sure I understand the new business metric. As in, the agency’s potential to bring in new business? How do you measure that? Feels like a pretty big crap shoot.

I worked at an agency with zero focus on new business. 2 existing clients left within a month of each other and the agency had to close. That’s why there always needs to be a new biz team trying to bring in new clients even if it is an extremely low success rate and seems like a waste of resources. 1 win can be the difference between keeping the lights on or shuttering up.


How is this even a question

Depends on the agency

I applied R2 and was waitlisted at Wharton and Kellogg. Recently promoted though with a new EC. Is there a strategy to when I should send in my updates (right away vs a month from now)? Or am I overthinking it?


Interviewed with a tech company and did the take home test. The interviewer said and I quote "you did phenomenal in testing, however, we decided to pause this position for the time being." That seems to be a trend. How do I identify these problems within the interview process and keep from wasting my time? It is frustrating, to say the least.


I fit the insecure overachiever consulting stereotype to a t. I always think I am underperforming despite really good formal and informal feedback. Does anyone have advice on how to break this mindset - my anxiety is constantly through the roof unless I’m on vacation 😭
