Lots of strict hiring freezes in industry. Only hiring for replacements, if that.

The economy is booming and our industry is bleak right now. Is there a path to success, to a turnaround? I feel stuck; there are so few openings to go after. What could happen to change things?

Very close to making principal with a top tier consulting firm (6-8 months). Have received a good offer from industry in their strategy team. It's definitely a bit of a step down in terms of where I am today and future revenues. I really liked the role and people though. I want a more balanced life (family, social, sports) and know enough that it's not possible in our profession. Is the exit worth it or I should just suck it up and make principal? Any personal experiences in such a situation

I negotiated with hiring manager a bit over the phone and just got a written offer. Do you think I could still negotiate a bit more or are negotiations over? How many “rounds” are common?

Has anyone ever been promoted to ACD only to feel like they were much happier at the Senior CW/AD level? I’m going through that right now and wondering if it will pass with time as I get more experience in the role. Or, if it doesn’t, what do you do about it? Would it look horrible to eventually take a job somewhere else back at the Senior CW level? I’ve always loved being the maker - focusing on writing and concepting. Having a lot of anxiety that this new position isn’t the right path for me.

Dear Diary 😉 Covid has made me even more weird than I normally am not to mention very lazy. Let’s see I wake up and just lay there for an hour doing nothing. Then I’ll do some quick naked yoga. Hop onto my first call. Then go take a shower in between meetings. Next onto my next call. In between there is a quick break to make coffee which I gulp in 3 mins flat. Then I FINALLY brush my teeth and do my eyebrows. Back on a call then I’ll put on clothes. Next I’ll scroll on social media aimlessly CON

So, I’m currently interviewing for new job, and market is not bad, but I’m anxious and I am interviewing for every opportunity that comes my way (director/vp level, tech). Today, September 30 I received an invite for an initial interview for another opportunity. So I applied to this opportunity through networking on August 10 (!). It looks like a red flag for me and I’m thinking thankyounext, but again it’s covid time... Thoughts?

Need some advice. I am super burnt out due to work, covid, etc. My firm offers a 3month internal rotation that is very popular - you keep full pay while having predictable hours & no client work. I’ve always been interested in it and the timing seems right. My main Partner is NOT supportive and says I should take medical leave instead or drop to part-time. He doesn’t have a project for me to work on but doesn’t want me doing anything else. Should I take the role at a risk to this relationship?

I left IB a year ago as an Associate to do Corp Dev. Unfortunately it’s turned out to be a total bust: the company “paused” all M&A activity about 6 months ago and I’ve just been doing BS Strategy / Ops work since then. I’m deciding if I want to go back to IB, or try for a better Corp Dev role. In general, do you guys think that Corp Dev roles are kinda bullshit, or are there good Corp Dev roles out there? I really hate not being a revenue-generating employee like I was in IB
