A lot of professional creatives (myself included) are pretty jokey / smiley people. That probably meant they felt natural around you, and that it went well!

I've been in the interview process w/my county's attys office for 3 months. Currently waiting for a final interview before a decision is made. It's been two weeks since my last interview with them. I had a missed call this morning. No VM was left, incoming calls not allowed nor any caller ID info. After a reverse lookup I found the specific attorney who the number belongs to. Would it be odd for me to contact her office directly and ask for her? Should I just wait & see if she calls again?

Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad

I can honestly say that working from home these last few years has been the best thing that’s happened to my career as a producer. I never realized how distracting being in an office was. Now, I actually can focus on bidding, scheduling, reviewing contracts, and all of the stressful parts of production WITHOUT having to factor in code switching and a commute. I left my agency producer role for a fully remote producing role and I’m just….thrilled. Anyone else refuse to go back to office? 😩
