Account Management

“You’re fabulous, 100% qualified.. they completely LOVED you and had ZERO negative feedback! But, they went with someone more qualified...” OK, how about just saying they went with the cheaper option?

How much did you ask for? Were you told it was out of budget?

Was for an AD role and I came in at $115k, which is low compared to starting AD salaries at past/current agencies..

Maybe they hired someone who had more years of experience, more relevant category experience or just a personal connection to someone within the agency. They’ll never be able to give you the true reason why.

That sucks, sorry. Suggestion for next time: try and make them give you the salary range for the role first. Feels weird but there's no reason you should be giving a number. Let them do it.

Agreed. Never give a number. Never. Even when the push and it’s awkward. “I think you should pay whatever the going rate is internally for someone with my experience” and then come back 15% higher.

Sucks. Especially when you know you’d do a great job. It happens - wasn’t personal
