Entry-level roles are easy to find nowadays, as opposed to Senior roles. We are screwed.

Companies think they can hire 4-5 entry level roles to cover the work of 1 senior person…to insulate themselves if the 1 senior person leaves.

What kind of role are you looking for? Account, media, creative, strategy? Where do you live?

Cool, it sounds like you may be brand new to the agency world, yes? No internships? I’d definitely start by applying for internships and working your way up to a FT role. A common career path in advertising is: crappy marketing internship, crappy agency internship, better agency internship, full time entry level agency job in a field/dept you don’t love, full time entry level agency job in the field/dept you do love, then upwards from there. This industry is big on agency experience, so you kind of have to start at the very bottom. Also, for creative, if you don’t have a portfolio or didn’t go to an ad school, I’d start by trying to get your foot in the door in any internship (creative or not) and after a few weeks, talk to your manager about shadowing someone from creative and offering to help them on some intern-level projects. Once you see if creative is definitely where you want to be, looking into portfolio school would be really helpful for you to get into a decent agency.

What do directors expect from junior creatives? I’m currently collaborating on a commercial with a senior copywriter and they are cranking out scripts like a factory.

Referrals are, for many, our bread and butter. Some attorneys often encourage clients and prospective with positive relationships to leave reviews on platforms like Avvo and Justia. Others avoid this like the plague due to the implications and risk of receiving, and more so responding to, bad reviews. We know against the rules to incentivize through compensation referrals from your clients; however, what do you do or where do you limit incentivizing clients to make referrals, if at all?
