What are you all doing to beef up your portfolio? Since agency work is confidential, I've got nothing short of college work to show...what can I do to show potential employers I know what I'm doing?

You have no need to have a portfolio of anything at all if you’re in account management...


Being able to talk about a campaign, perhaps a strategy behind an already launched campaign (what might go in an awards submission) to show you understand the Target audience, message, objectives and execution.

Hello everyone!
What would you choose between P&G, pwC and a small consulting firm for a data science internship. The three positions are based in Paris and in data science, I have to take a decision this week and I'm completely lost :/

Thank you so much for your help

Hi I work in patient finance and I am desperately bored with my job. I have a bachelors which isn’t a requirement for my role. I have been applying non stop to jobs that do require a bachelors and I am qualified for. Either I don’t get called for an interview or when I do I’m not selected. I have followed up with some of the interviewers and they all told me I interview well. I am so tired of disappointment that I feel like giving up and just settling. I don’t know what to do.

I moved to Baltimore during the pandemic and am WFH but I want to get out and meet more people. Thinking about joining Volo (IM league) for softball or something but I don’t want to be that awkward person that signs up as an individual and is assigned a team that’s already a group of friends 🥲 I don’t have enough confidence to do things on my own (restaurant, movies, etc) because I think I’m so self conscious even though I don’t usually show it 😔 I’m almost 27 and should be able to do that 🤦🏻‍♀️


I need advice…. a partner is moving my time to non-billable codes rather than writing it off. He’s doing it to make his numbers look good when fees exceed the quoted fee cap. He is doing it without first giving me a guide on how much time to record and is sending my work without amends (ie my work is good). In my firm billable hours recorded go towards performance, promotions and bonuses. Write offs and realisation are not part of those assessments.


How are you all managing? Wfh or still in the office? I'm wfh with my husband in a 1-bedroom apartment. Slowly losing my mind. But I am being more diligent about working out.

I’m seriously contemplating getting my MBA.


How do I communicate to my boss they aren’t a great teacher? I hardly know what I’m doing (just started a few months ago) and if I ask I get a cold, short response. They also don’t spend any time to get to know our team (myself included) and I feel like that’s why they can’t get anything done on time. Everything is transactional.


What does it mean if you get feedback such as “know the room better?” I came across a team email that was addressed to my account team, and I approached my boss about my response to it. Then he gave me this feedback and told me not to engage in the conversation. Funny thing is a strategy lead just responded back to the team with the exact response I came up with, and my boss agreed with her...
