What do you normally do if you see anonymous people from an agency (e.g. W&K 👀) creeping on your LinkedIn profile?

Get excited for nothing.

Being excited is it’s own reward though right

Sometimes I stalk back so they know I know.

The CDs gambit

I pray to the dark lord Cthulu and offer it a virgin sacrifice so that the people of W+K will like my work and offer me a job. 10 virgins so far, and nothing. Maybe a few more since Cthulu is so large, the bounty has to match his mass.

So that's how it works.

just passive-aggressively stalk them back. but before that I change my profile picture, so they don't immediately know it's me. so when they check who went on their profile, they see me staring at them and menacingly pointing two fingers in their direction.

If you want to work there, reach out to a recruiter there to see if they're looking. Reach out to anyone you know there (or someone you share a mutual friend with).

Otherwise, do nothing.

It could be a junior account person.
It could be Dan Wieden.

Chase the dream or let the mystery be.

I don’t want to work there. What I want is to hibernate all winter like a bear with a belly full of blueberries and then stroll around come summer, if I’m honest. But I like you’re advice.

People look at other people on LinkedIn. Is there anything you really must do?

I don’t know that I have anything that falls into that category.

I constantly can’t make it past six months of dating someone. I’ve been with someone for a few months now and we’re getting closer to that milestone and it’s like something in my brain flips.

Others totally random stuff that’s driving me nuts. Any advice? I really thought I was ready for this.

Not one person from our account team has been laid off during this pandemic but our creative and production team that were already small, has been cut in half.

In an email wrapping up the lay offs, management wrote “there isn’t enough work for everyone.” But how is there still enough work for an account team that’s triple the size of the creative team, after the loss of three major clients?
