Vent Post. Dealing with imposter syndrome and feeling like I’m not good enough. It appears that there’s been a collapse with effective communication due to the pandemic and I’m feeling drained with Zoom/Teams meetings. Hoping to get back into the office soon.

After 12+ years in FTE roles both agency and brand side in strategy/brand marketing/social strat roles. Thinking about taking it freelance. But I’ve never done freelance or consulting before - ever. Would love to connect with someone who’s done this (or does it on the side) - would anyone be open to do a Zoom call with me to answer questions/give me advice? As a token of my appreciation, I’d send you a Drizly (or Seamless, DoorDash, or UberEats) gift card so we could make it a happy hour!

Damn. Was lucky enough to land an interview. The interview went numerous rounds, it was super positive, so then I decided I would be 100% honest about something I wasn’t good at, in hopes of being clear that I was ready to grow. Then I got ghosted, and I think it’s because of the said honesty. Feeling low and stupid for ever admitting a “fault” in an interview instead of just telling them that I’m perfect.
