Made a few. But nothing like the relationships you get at a FT program (as I’ve heard from colleagues). I also didn’t lose any salary during the program so it was a trade off

If it’s not a bother, which school?

I did Wharton’s exec mba. I have several very close friends from my program. Make sure to do a program where everyone stays in the same hotel - it’s one of the only ways to force the community since you see each other less

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring.

I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
