I would do C. Unless that gcd is a total A-hole day to day. Then I would definitely leave.

100% agree. Ego sometimes gets in the way, but it’s the right thing to do.

B. Talk to someone, just to let them know there’s a history there. Then do C and prove to everyone how awesome you are and that you’re above the drama.

I used to feel upset about jobs I didn't get. But now that I'm in a hiring position, I understand that there's so much more at play than "you weren't good enough" or "you don't have X experience." I thought the people I interviewed with would see the potential in me. But honestly it's more complicated than that. Maybe they know there's a big TV media buy coming up and they want someone who has a ton of broadcast experience. Or the team under you is particularly difficult to manage and they need an experienced creative lead etc. The best thing you could do is go in with a lot to prove. And to prove it.

Thanks, it great to hear other perspectives on this.

I had a very similar situation in a previous life. I had to remind myself that it didn't matter how I got there, it was what I did now that I was there that mattered. Play the long game and don't sweat that background noise. (People are wrong all the time and being wrong once isn't a fatal flaw.) Your successes will prove your advocates right and win over the majority of the disbelievers.

If I were him, and I will be one day, I would have had a conversation with my employee about it.

Don’t leave a company and job you like because of someone’s person opinion. Focus on the opinions that matter. You don’t need everyone’s approval.

It depends where this company will take you. My first job in the business was an unpaid internship. I was called two months later after eventually being told “Thanks for trying.” I kind of resented the boss especially since he called me in because their initial candidate needed sponsorship and it was to expensive for them. I bit my tongue and worked for my benefit. If this is taking a toll o your health and you resent the GCD that much, move on. Otherwise, smile, nod, and milk the experience for everything it is worth.

...you even get promoted. Then, agency mix up, your team is now part of the team that said u weren’t good enough and you have to report to that GCD who said you weren’t good enough and it infuriates you. You don’t think the GCD is worthy of your hard work. In the back of your head your thinking maybe no one knows but they prob do. Do you; A. peace out? B. say something about it? C. Do nothing and just prove how awesome you are?

did they not hire you because you were inexperienced or not good enough? you said both, but only one is true if it was inexperience, settle down. you now have experience so it's all good. if it was not good enough, does the GCD think you're good enough now? if not, C. maybe A. but it sounds like it's all in your head. unless you have proof GCD is treating you poorly or different because of this past experience. but you didn't say that.

I was told it was inexperience for the particular work I was hoping to do. But at the level I was going in as I had plenty. I think I was having a bad interview day. Again, this is great to have like minded people to vent about it.

Not good enough, or not experienced enough? There’s a difference. It sounds like you’ve grown since you’ve been there, so it could just work out. Say something if you can be honest without sounding defensive or confrontational. But you can also just see how it goes

Either C or a combo of C and A if you really don’t think you can work with them. Not B
