What’s your take on doing “award work” for NGOs. Steer the hell away or go ahead since it’s benefitting both parties (cause and agency)?

Oh by benefit you mean raise ineffectual *awareness" for the sake of personal glory through exploitation.

I finally found a great in house job. Even though I’m super excited, I am SO nervous about giving notice. I feel guilty because I know the people I work with are very busy and having to pick up my load will definitely add more to their already very full plates. Also, I get along with everyone and feel like I am well liked and that this will be shocking news to everyone. Any words of encouragement? Of course, i will work to get all my cases in good shape and want to leave on a good note

I think the question I’ve gotten most in interviews is, “What’s your process?” And I’m never quite sure how to answer. Maybe because it depends so much on the ask/project. I’m curious how other people go about this one.

I need advice y’all 😖 I’ve been interviewing with 2 agencies. Agency A is my dream place but they’re taking a long time to extend an offer. Agency B is intense/demanding but great

I got an offer from agency B on Tuesday

On Wednesday, I went through the 6th round of interviews with the CEO of agency A. I sent a follow up email this morning asking about next steps, but no response/no concrete offer just yet. I’m planning on emailing again before EOD about my other offer..SOS (1/2)

What are the rules on connecting with agencies via 3rd party recruiters? Like, I know if a 3rd party connects you with a job opening at Grey, you can’t go to a different 3rd party right after and try again. But what if it’s a different account? What if a different CCO? Does a 3rd party recruiter own your access to the agency forever? I have one that’s mad now because they connected me with a giant agency last summer - I didn’t get the gig. (Continued...)
