Thank you. Im specifically looking for creative and strategy exec leaders. Mostly to follow and for awareness, I have my personal mentorship circle set.


Depends on what type of list you're building. One for mentorship? One for networking? One for coaching? Interview referrals...I have a solid list based on past agency roles, participation in orgs like colorcomm and AAF, personal referrals and reaching out to people 1:1 on LinkedIn...

So I am a TA, filling 20-30 call center roles per month, on top of taking over some HR responsibilities until we fill our HR Manager roll..so I stay pretty busy, working 40-50 hours per week.

I was wondering...What do TA's do when they don't have any open positions to hire for? Does this happen? Is this a thing?

Hi fishes,
I was wondering if I put down my resignation now. And in case after a few weeks I decide to stay back, can I withdraw my resignation?

I have a 16-month-old son and not a single mom friend. It feels so pathetic to write that. I'd love to find other moms so my kid can have playdates, but also so I can have someone to talk to, commiserate with, give advice, etc. Because of COVID, there isn't much opportunity to interact with other parents at daycare dropoff, and with classes and playgroups scarce, I'm not sure what else to do. Any tips or success stories? Or anyone in Brooklyn want to be friends?


What would you do?

(Or really this is just me typing out loud. )

Currently 6 years at job A at 100K and 10K annual bonus but lil to no upward mobility. It's safe if not going anywhere.

Recruiter reached out regarding Job B at 130K with greater advancement potential but it starts out at 6 Months Contract to Hire per the agency contract. No bonus, benefits adequate by comparison. There is no guarantee to go full time.

Interview just for practice?


If you received multiple offers, and one of the companies went out of their way to get you the best pay + increased stocks, but you still decide to reject them, what's the nicest way to do so without burning bridges? Would love to hear your experiences


A girl I’ve been dating has mentioned that she’s still friends with her ex and talks about them hanging out regularly. I asked if she still has feelings for her ex and she said no. As someone who’s been cheated on, I can’t help but think it’s a red flag. Am I overthinking this? I know people can be friends with some exes, but I’m not one of them.

I feel like I do so much MORE work than my manager, when it comes to meetings he's often unprepared and I think my group director is starting to get suspicious. Should I do anything or mind my business and see how this plays out?

Hi Everyone, need some advice. The only reason why I took my current role is because my direct supervisor would be a black woman VP- I was obviously excited because I've never worked with another black woman before. She's been out on maternity leave since September and I've had to cover her role and do my job, which is two levels above mine and supervising someone above my level. Yesterday the SVP tells me they found a new VP (ww) who would be my new boss.

If there is any talented jr. copy I’m looking for someone to join me at a great agency in Amsterdam, Netherlands. DM me for more info :)

Are your agencies fulfilling their 2020 promises or was it all talk? What agency is really ‘bout it and what agency wins an Oscar for outstanding performance (with zero receipts)?

Hi - first, white woman here. Please let me know if I am intruding! That said, a friend of mine is looking for CD CWs and she was really hoping to bring a woman of color into the role. It sounds like there aren’t even applicants. I racked my brain and while I know many who are in the art side, I don’t know a single writer. If you are interested, DM me your book! It’s a fantastic job. Also, I was wondering if there is a reason there seem to be less CD writer females of color vs art?


We’re hiring a senior editor for our in-house agency. Come work with the best editorial team on the West Coast! Pharma ad agency or med Ed experience preferred. DM me if interested.

Any mentorship or leadership development programs for copywriters?
