Ask three questions about the company/interviewer at the end of the interview. Apply Monday/Tuesday (this is when recruiters are the most attentive and it boosts your chance for a call back) Figure out a couple type of positions you would want and apply broadly Don’t go to law school

Never accept the first salary offered, always counter

+1

Counter/state your salary via email. You have more time to put some thought into what you want to say. Give a good reason why you want that salary (I.e. saving to buy first house). And back it up with what you have to offer.

This is how I increased by salary by 75%

Need advice- How do I make my LinkedIn profile more attractive to recruiters from FAANG or MBB apart from listing the relevant experience?

A wonderful friend recommended me to a recruiter, when the recruiter was looking to place a creative. This role is at a small agency, I’m going to be paired with a Sr. Copywriter. They’re looking for a conceptual thinker and brilliant designer, no pressure. I have some internships and some freelance under my belt since graduating portfolio school, and a current laptop that’s running on fumes ha. I’m intimidated, cautious, yet super grateful to finally hear from someone. Any words of wisdom?
