No two days of a job in advertising will ever be the same. No two people you meet in an agency will ever be the same; it’s all part of the fun. That said, sometimes it’s nice to have some guidelines. Here is our attempt at distilling the essence of advertising, account management and planning into 5 short lines. It won’t tell you everything but it might get you started, particularly if you’re thinking of applying for our Grad Scheme.
“Making great ideas happen”
“Thinking linearly and laterally”
“Never taking yourself too seriously”
Account Management is…
“Understanding clients’ business”
“The devil in the detail”
“Being resourceful and resilient”
“Wearing many hats”
“Building and maintaining relationships”
“All about the consumer”
“Simplifying the complex”
“Making work that works”
Hopefully this will help point you in the right direction if you’re unsure which discipline is most up your street!
