Any advice on other industries/kinds of companies producers can pivot to and still use Producer/PM skills? Interested in jobs outside of advertising where I can still wear a producer-like hat.

I just listened to an interview of a creative director recount their path towards copywriting at a famous ad agency. It could not have been a more textbook case of failing upwards as a white man.

It would seem the only thing you need to make it as an advertising creative is to have lots of not particularly original ideas. Practically every other skill is unnecessary. If you’re a white man.

That this level of mediocrity passes for talent explains why so many agency briefs are so lame.
