Most comparable roles will be Corp Strategy / S&O roles. Should be able to pick and choose industries if you’ve had enough variety on deals / projects.

Hear me out. We’re living in the residual days of advertising power. Back in the day, if you worked in advertising, you very much shaped culture. Advertising creatives shared the airwaves with only the likes of Hollywood and national news. There were only so many pipes into culture and advertising was a big one. But today, the pipes are democratized. Random teens on TikTok are having more impact on culture than Mad Ave. And yet, so much ego and self importance remains.

I’m buying a house with my SO and MOST of the down payment is coming from me. Both our names will be on the deed / title. We are getting married very soon! However, because I’ve been very busy at work, I wired her the money to go get a cashiers check with our down payment and closing costs for our closing. I noticed that the “Remitter” on the cashiers check she got only has her name on it. Is this a problem? Should I have the cashiers check changed to have both our names on it for legal reasons?
