Account Management

What kind of experience would you want to see on a resume for someone applying for a Sr. AE title vs AE? How much does years of experience matter vs. responsibilities and/or higher education (MA)?

Higher education doesn’t matter. Years of experience does

I most often find if I'm hiring an SAE instead of AE, I need to reset my expectations. It's more likely that I'll hire an AE to be promotable to SAE. It's incredibly difficult to accurately interview for that nuanced soft skill difference without discovering I was looking for an AS all along.

Usually around 3-5 years experience and responsibility for managing the full day-to-day execution on 1-3 accounts as a direct client contact. Beginning to demonstrate the ability to plan, strategize or build out scopes. Honestly much of the difference between AE/SAE is in soft skills - how you approach more challenging situations, being trusted to deliver to clients with little oversight.

Figured as much in the advertising industry. So then what’s the experience level a hiring manager would want to see for an SAE v. AE? Not only in years experience but also in responsibilities?

Had a phone interview with hiring manager last Thurs. Thought the conversation went well and the recruiter said she will be in touch as soon as she gets feedback from the manager. Now it’s Tues and nothing. Is this bad? Or am I just being too antsy? Do I need to chill out?😖

I interviewed with the client and it has been a couple of weeks since I’ve heard from the hiring manager (3 weeks since 2nd interview). I’ve already informed my engagement team. I was told that they would inform me if there was a decision made and I’ve known previously that the offering process at this company can take up to a month. Should I reach out again for status update or wait to hear back from hiring manager?

Started in big law in April (haven’t even been in the office yet, other than during interviews). My group is extremely busy. We get large assignments with 1-day turnarounds during the workday, at night and on the weekends. I don’t think I have left my apt without my laptop since starting. I am constantly anxious about going anywhere/out to eat/making weekend plans. Any advice on setting boundaries in this wfh environment? I’ve noticed a pattern of fake deadlines. Any advice on dealing with this?

So, I used to write for Sports Illustrated and I’m trying to get into copywriting. I’ve also done copywriting for small businesses over the past two years. I don’t exactly have your typical portfolio and, at 30-years-old, I can’t really stop working and go to portfolio school. I’m applying for jobs, but nothing doing yet. Am I out of luck or do you think someone with that kind of background can get hired by an agency?

I’m a 40-hr/week temp who wants to stay that way rather than moving to full time status. My employment agreement has a date that our engagement is “expected to end,” but it says that it may be extended. It’s at will and can be terminated by either party at any time. The way things go here, the client, the hours: I want to keep my nice little 8 hour bubble with overtime. So when the time comes, can I reject any FT offer and force them to continue as is or terminate?

I was alone in my last project and the client is actively trying to offer me a job (directly under the CFO). I've been working on this project for the past 6 months and I don't like the environment/people. That said, there was a salary reduction at my office and I'm pretty sure MBA sponsorship is not happening. Does this job opportunity improve my chances at HSW? I would totally put up with it if it did. Would this mean my app won't compete against other consultants?(I guess that would be a pro
