Meet Up: It Takes All Kinds to Work in Advertising

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

An agency's best talent doesn't have to come straight out of portfolio school. What leads people to work in advertising or marketing? How does a diverse professional background lend itself to intriguing work? What's it like to start working in a marketing/advertising agency after life on the client side, running a small business, or working in the nonprofit sector?
This is a meet-up for folks from "agency life" who led previous lives in other industries, to discuss creativity as vocation and compulsion. Especially inclusive of those new to the ad world whose egos have not yet been extensively massaged.
