Do 2 big names on my resume (regardless of role) help me be a better candidate for roles that I am actually interested in at other large firms even though my particular experience isn’t really related to the roles I am applying to? For ex lets say I have 2 marketing related roles at big companies but I havent gotten much classical marketing experience it has been more support/project coordinating-after experience at these companies do I have a good shot at qualifying for real marketing roles?

Hey everyone, needing some creative help. I work in the financial and accounting industry doing marketing. I am trying to come up with some creative social media campaigns, but running into problems with 1. A “boring” industry, 2. A highly regulated industry, and 3. Lack of staff interaction. Looking forward any advice if you all have been in a creative rut- or how to get employee engagement. Thanks!

The first things you need to organize your workplace are a full staff list and an org chart (title hierarchy). If those don't already exist, you can make them.

Hi. I’m going to this training and if anyone else in advertising or design industry wants to attend we could have our own break out group there and meet.

It's Friday again, friends.
Has anyone seen that Patriot Act episode (the Netflix show with Hassan Minaj) where they talk about the video game industry? It sounds very much like advertising and they’re finally unionizing.
You may have noticed the new Networking feature that has been added to our and other bowls. It concerned me with regard to privacy, so I reached out to Fishbowl for answers.

The only useful conception of a "middle class" is to describe people who live mostly off their assets but occasionally work to round out their earnings. And even that needs to be unpacked at an almost case by case basis, because of how complex those relationships can be.
I should have said if you are *forced* to sell your labor to live. But this is exactly the kind of conversation I was hoping to spark.
So you’re saying a CCO of a global agency and a Starbucks employee are both part of the “working class”? That’s one way to look at it.
But that’s precisely the point, right? They are choosing to work even though they have the means not to, so they are not truly working class in the same sense. They may continue to sell their labor for wages, but they truly receive more in compensation from bonuses and stocks. This is one of those case-by-case bases where you can determine that the CCO isn’t in the same class position as the Starbucks employee, who only receives a wage for their labor, and would have to scramble for another job if they got laid off. Further, the Starbucks employee (and any low level employee at any company) necessarily does not receive in wages all of the profit their labor generates—this gets reinvested in the business and also goes to those higher up on the pyramid, like those in managerial roles, and those further up like owners and stakeholders. I would say the CCO is positioned somewhere between the manager and the owner— upper-middle class. One might also call it upper professional-managerial class. I think the intention of this post is to imagine a kind of class unity, but I do agree that not every working person truly has the same motivations and relationship to power...
