Personally, I wish that I learned things don't have to be so high stress early on. I gripped the bat too tight when I started, and now I think I understand how to calm down.

Speaking to the WFH part, you’ll need to put more effort into deliberately communicating and connecting with your colleagues. Learning from people with more experience will be critical to growing.

Need advice. Have an offer to go to an amazing agency with a big pay bump, title increase and fully remote. But the account we’d be hired to work on seems fun but not really the account you’d expect to pump out award-winning work (although I think there is potential!). Thinking we could go work on it for a year and worst case try and transfer to a new account if we’re bored. Does it make sense to get our foot in the door this way at a great agency? Or are we losing a year of career development?
