Reps: do you feel it’s wrong to submit Freece directors for jobs over your paying rostered clients? If the lead isn’t a fit for your rostered clients is leaving the opportunity (and potential money) on the table the “right” thing to do or are you stuck feeling a sense of loyalty to the producer seeking talent?

We have talked about this but to recap to a wider audience- I decided not to be a production company. I will intro a new appropriate director to a company but for me to take over the management of a director for even just one job is not good use of my time or skills

Did anyone see the post in the Work-Life bowl posted by the analyst? Saying that he(26M) was scared to be judged at corporate events for his gfs(19F!!!) hair color & tattoos? If you didn’t, please check out the comments. And then remember that these are men in the financial industry, that could very well be your coworkers. The grooming. The objectification. I am disgusted, but not surprised.

Doing a remote interview tomorrow for an in-house position that I really want. Invite says "[company] is a startup, so a full suit is not necessary! Business casual attire is recommended." Like I said, I really want this job, and the idea of not wearing a suit is just weird to me

Should I still wear the suit or would it be counter productive?

Any creatives follow this bowl? If so, what is your opinion on sales reps sharing new director/vendor work with you? A warm welcome or a complete annoyance?


Hey AIR team,
How do you confirm a company that approaches you from Europe is legitimate? I have a media company from Turkey asking me to quote some animation for them. They have a website, have given their address (which is an actual address on google maps), and have given phone numbers which I haven't tried yet. I have let them know that if we work together, I'd require 50% up front, 35% midway and 15% before delivery of final elements and they say they're fine with that. Anything else?
