Any tips for note taking? My biggest struggle is retaining information communicated verbally. To compound the issue, I’m a millennial and was never taught note taking, short hand, or cursive (outside a week long lesson to write our names) in school. It takes me forever to write out notes and while I’m writing I miss everything that’s being said. I have no problem putting in the work to learn techniques but can’t find helpful resources.

I have an SAE starting and the PM director is adamant that “Account trains Account” on all things. I think PM needs to be involved to develop a relationship and help set a good tone, especially when it comes to the interaction we have with each other. Am I looking at this wrong? How are others doing this?

Hello! I've been looking for an account position at design-forward agencies (e.g. Collins, Red Antler) for about a year but they are either (a) super senior and/or (b) not supported by junior account team. There's no flag more red than "we need someone who can put on many hats".
Any suggestions of design agencies that have an account team? Thanks!

I’m on my 2nd day of a new job and it’s nothing like what I was expecting or what the hiring manager said. On top of it, the clients I’m working with has these crazy, outdated brand guidelines that the team has to go by and the creative I’ve seen is just not that great (assuming it’s due to the clients branding). I just don’t know what to do, I feel like this isn’t the place for me but I haven’t even given it a full week yet. Has anyone experienced feelings like this before? What did you do?
