Not sure if this is the best place to ask
I’ve been out of work for two years due to mental health. I am terrified to get back into the real world but I’m tired of struggling. Has anyone gone through this as well? What helps you cope?
I have worked very hard (probably harder than someone with a degree) to get where I am in my career. I started out as a data entry clerk and through my hard work, I have worked up to being a Contracts Manager. I am now looking to relocate and find a similar position at another company; however, I am finding it difficult to find a job due to not having a college education. What can I do to show or prove to potential employers that I can do the job just as good as any other candidate?
What would you recommend for someone graduating from school in terms of how to think about mgmt consulting vs. working as an industry-position consultant or other kinds of consulting? It seems like strategy / management consulting is the most prestigious but I'm not sure that's the best reason to pick a job...
OK, the previous post is a tough act to follow, but here goes: Within the next week or two, I will be laid off from the ad agency where I work. Unfortunately, this is an industry hazard; when an agency loses clients, it cuts staff. We're losing two major accounts. It's deja vu for me, because the last agency I worked at lost a huge account and laid off 11 staffers, including me. The advertising industry skews very young. I laugh when I see "senior copywriter" positions requiring three years of experience. I have more than 20 years of experience. Also, many writers focus on a niche, such as pharma, but I take pride in the diversity of my portfolio. While I prefer a permanent, full-time copywriting/content position, either remote or in the Greater Philadelphia/South Jersey region, I'm thinking about going freelance. I already have a few freelance clients, but not enough to pay the bills. Any advice on how to best position myself in the marketplace, and how to dive in to freelance writing full time would be greatly appreciated. (And feel free to hit me up with job offers!)
I have always wanted a big family and have also always been career-oriented. This is my first baby but I'm already beginning to worry about how to be a mom to multiple kids and keep up with my career...are there any secrets to being able to have a large family and stay with your career? The math on daycare seems terrible when you think about having 2 or even 3 or 4 kids.
