We have been working on a client deliverable to close a project and my current engagement has two made directors who I work with directly( one just got promoted from SM this July ) . During one of our discussions in putting this doc together, I may have come out as “aggressive”/“opinionated . I’m generally the quiet one , asking for feedback and listening in mostly. I didn’t realize it in the moment but at that point (contd)

New mom here. My LO is 3 months old and I'm back at work. Has anyone tried any of those "hands-free" pumps like Willow or Elvie? They're like $500 and insurance doesn't cover them. Are they worth it?
hey all, i’m 3 years into my career. some decent work produced, some awards (mostly student). after getting laid off last fall and many many applications and emails sent, I’ve decided to spend time and money on a creative PR stunt to get my dream agencies’ attention. I’ve decided I don’t want to settle any longer, and I’m ready to make the jump to the elite. so people that have made it to their dream agencies: when did it happen for you, what made it happen, and was it everything you hoped for?
Looking for advice. I’m currently interviewing for a position that pays $20k more than I make now. It seems like the job would not be giving me much for my portfolio and may have some work/life balance issues (but tbh what agency doesn’t). I’ve got piles of student loan debt. I’m only in year 2 of my career. Do I take this job for a year, deal with the downsides, pay off a huge chunk of my debt, then get back to fun stuff? Or will it hurt my career to have a portfolio gap?
Got an offer for a combo - technical accounting and PMO position at a smaller bank. 15% increase and the role that I would ideally want to have, but 3 month away from Senior Manager promo/bonus/etc.
Any recommendations for a driving instructor? I’m Aussie and have a valid Australian driver’s license but unfortunately need to sit the test here. Confident driver but wouldn’t mind a few lessons before sitting my test because of this whole other side of the road thing. Appreciate any recs!
What kinds of extracurriculars "count" for admissions? For example, I'm a serious musician and play in competitions and gigs; I also have some leadership experience from college that was pretty extensive (used it for all my job interviews) but hasn't continued since then. Also, how many activities do they usually ask for? Just trying to get a sense of how/if I should adjust my activities to be more "application-ready".
any funny intern stories from this busy season?
