I think it has it's merit but I don't think it's an absolute must for growth in the field

I just got mine in December, it was a lot of studying but I passed! My current employer doesn’t seem to value that I passed since they didn’t give me the raise I was hoping for but I think it will be beneficial for the future. I would see if your company finds that valuable and if you find it valuable for your own personal growth!

Apologies if there are already a ton of threads on this.. but any advice for what to do as a career account person trying to transition to client-side or tech? Maybe I'm just feeling down, but after 6 years at agencies I don't feel qualified for the jobs I'm seeing (brand marketing, product, etc). How do we get out of this career path?!

Over the course of 6 weeks, I had several panel interviews and the next step was a final in-person interview. Each round I had great feedback and my correspondence with the company recruiter was consistent and friendly. Until now. After a week of radio silence since my last interview, I sent a gentle polite follow up that has gone unanswered for almost a week. I saw that the original JD was reposted on LinkedIn a few days before my last interview (ugh). Am I being ghosted? So confusing.
