Was it easy getting a job after graduating? What if you’re good at making art and music? Can you use both for an advertising agency?

Casually Stylish says:

I can relate so much with you! I'm a designer at an agency. They sure work your butt off! My brain been so fried to the point where I can feel steam coming out of it. lol. It's also very difficult for me to be creative outside of work. When I first started, I did so much overtime during our busy season that my health started to deteriorate. Now I learn how to manage my time better and communicate about my schedule often. And you're right about the process of approval. Sometimes it's a pain in the butt, especially when I need to get it done ASAP. And you're also right about the pros. I do love creating and definitely gotten a lot better at designing. You must work at an awesome company, because it's really the people who makes the job tolerable.

Thanks for this video. It's become crystal clear to me that this is the professional environment I belong in….something that would be helpful would be a video on what creative agencies are looking for from a recruitment perspective. How to get a foot in the door. What your interview experience was like…etc.

Bradley Lancaster says:

I work at Publicis Worldwide and i totally agree with you about being fried and watching Netflix at the end of the day. I do HTML5 ads for about six brands, it is almost impossible to keep up with the workload.
