I think Mark Read is really trying to tighten up the balance sheet before the end of the year and build some momentum with Wall St. He’s on a short leash and under incredible pressure so I get it. To me this one actually makes more sense than Grey and AKQA becoming AKQA group

I’m casually interviewing, and I finished the final round for a smaller, lesser known firm recently. They want another follow up call to gauge interest. How do I tell them I’m just wanted interview practice and won’t probably even take their offer 😂. I feel bad.

Note to removal defense lawyers. Bond approved last Tuesday, one week before today’s merits hearing. Client couldn’t get out of jail because bond payments in central Ohio can only be made on Tuesday and Thursday. Luckily, Judge continued hearing so client can be placed on non-detained docket. Lesson is to know when bond can be paid in your area to try to avoid future problems.
