Regardless of how you feel about PM, a lot of good and talented people lost their jobs.

I admit, it is a relief to hear there might be less cigarette promotions.

Also, hope the talent released has decent severance packages a ripe job market to harvest.

more folks in production got let go last week-it's about the fact that clients want more to advertise but are not willing to pay for it. lastly the amount of tobacco advertising will stay the same - just on different product categories. Whether or not you like it - tobacco pays the bills.

Looking to hire a full-time media buyer. Junior to mid level.

We’re a smaller, specialized agency focusing in performance marketing for corporate innovation and growth stage startups (e.g Cameo, DUDE Products, etc)

You’d work directly with our VP of Growth Marketing and CGO, lots of hands on training.

Ideally in Chicago - we only work in office once a week. Not opposed to out of state remote, but can chat through and see if it’s a mutually fit setup.

DM me or reply if interested!
