I'm a Marketing Director for a tech company with ~30 employees. Marketing is extremely broad and not all of the spectrum is that creative, whatever that word means anyway. I can tell you that the highest paying marketing jobs typically are not sexy jobs. Over my career I do a lot of work that I could argue is creative, but I crunch a lot of numbers, have a lot of excel spreadsheets open on my computer at any given time, and I'd say a lot of the work I do could be compared...
I feel in the past year that a lot of posters who made great content have left. Most threads you see on any given page are not current threads, many are just mega threads made years ago. I think the Dumb Threads section kind of changed the tone of the forum and made it more of a young man's club. Most of the better posters who have left are older.
Hello friends, I think I will join the American Marketing Association. There is a local networking event or a seminar about once a month, plus lots of webinars, articles, and lots of private job listings. I will join to learn more and also to network because I'm fishing for a new job. I've been to similar events before and everyone I meet asks for a card. I get cards from people too. Sometimes I have contacted people I've gotten a card from half a year later, or years...
I dont use a padfolio, but I can tell you now that the smaller one is not likely to be practical for on the job. I use the Field Notes booklets outside of work and they are nice for recipe lists, writing down addresses, passwords, and phone numbers, but that's it; which is fine because they fit in the back pocket perfectly. At work I use the Field Notes steno pad and it's just the perfect size.
Scrolled through this thread without reading to avoid spoilers. I'm 4 or 5 episodes in and it's very engrossing. My wife and I usually listen to one as we have dinner.

Everyone agrees that it was a good series but it seemed to fly under the radar despite having some pretty good casting. I thought the concept of having a Fargo TV show was strange, but they really nailed the tone of the movie and had a lot of great characters. Lou Solverson was a good one so I'm happy he's the main char of...
Angelina Jolie's Inside the Actor's Studio interview creeped me the hell out.
The rumor is Titan was canceled a year ago, though it was just announced recently. It had some kind battle arena part of the game, and that's what became Overwatch.
I've done this before and it's been fine. I've turned generic titles into something very specific, like Marketing Specialist into Market Analyst because the false title was really a better identifier for what I did on that job. The catch is that your reference has to identify you by that same title. In this case, Id give a heads up to a former boss that I was far in the interview process and if ____ company called, I had the title of _____ and these specific qualifications...
I do not have the position, but I have much of the work load that would have came with it, and a lot more respect from upper management.The person who offered me the position was going to give it up because she already managed another department and she had too much on her plate. Shortly after I posted this she nearly lost her role as manager of the other department. I assume she feared losing her relevance. The offer was revoked, but I was taking on more and more sales...
