What career paths are available to strategists after they leave the agency world? Every job I find seems way too specialized; are there no client-side jobs focused on overall marketing strategy?
I feel completely lost at work. I started at a new company 1 month ago and got put on a client that’s just as confused as I am. I’m only associate level (with a little experience from my last firm) but I feel like I’m “in charge” of this audit. I feel like nothing on the audit has been done and I’m soooo nervous for manager review. Wtf do I do?! I’m so overwhelmed.

For those that are moms of younger kids, what are you doing / communicating in terms of travel for work? I’m currently on a non-travel project but starting to think about what could happen once I’m done and if I need to communicate anything to leadership in advance. I’d prefer not to travel with the delta variant out there + a baby (11 mos). I used to travel M - Th pre-baby.

Do you like being on retainer or more project based contracting? I'm in a good place financially being on retainer but I want to be pushed more creatively as a personal objective because I feel I'm not getting it at my current contracting agency. That would mean revising or going off retainer to open up more working hours for unknown possibilities. Open to hear your thoughts, life experience, and opinions. Thanks Creatives!

Going to be an experienced hire from a boutique, starting as Consultant in London. I gather that in terms of trying to drive greater choice of projects & greater promotion opportunities, you need to network internally. What does this mean? What’s the best way to do this (remotely & not) as an experienced hire?
A senior client director gave me major kudos today in front of of my direct manager and sent a message to my senior director. Not a bad way to start the week, but man am I mentally exhausted already lol.

Anyone think CSR worth it if you have left consulting? I have left consulting as of today. Primarily, evaluating only from a financial perspective.

Any advice for an intern looking to get hired on? Been doing good work for a couple months now and have 2 weeks left.
This is a bit of an aside, but over the last year or two, I've noticed "career coaching" explode as a service and a field. But, like what is it? How is it different from therapy, and how should it be utilized? I'm intrigued, but don't know much about it.
