Advertising

Any tips on which shops to look into at a very senior strategy level? Already done the bbh, wk, droga and bbdo circuit. Kind of bored of it.

Have you tried Humblebrag? Oh you have, okay, then I dunno. If the places that everybody really wants to work just bore you, its probably that youre way too cool and smart for advertising. Maybe put on a scarf indoors, and give a Ted Talk about how "the ad agency model needs to change." Dont forget to ride a fixie bike there and back!

It sounds like you’ve been there, done that. Have you thought about dental school? Cyber security? Or eugenics? There are so many other interesting ways to make an impact in this world.

Sounds like you’ve done the agency circuit. Have you thought about going either brand side or consulting side?

R/GA for some of the upstream work. Or Co:Collective or SY Partners if you want to strategize an organization beyond its marketing.

So you’ve actually worked at all four of those shops or are you just bored of hearing about them? Strange you didn’t find one of them you loved. I’d say they they’re all pretty different shops too. Wieden by far the best culture and fit for me.

I've consistently heard so many good things about Wieden---wish they were hiring Account Directors❗

Go innovation/experience side? Fjord, Ideo, Frog, etc. Or in-house at big tech. Seems like the logical progression. It sounds like you’re bored of advertising in general.

I remember when folks were willing to give some head to work at those shops...now, it won't be long before those shops are selling ass to recruit the best people. "In high school you were the man, homie..."

What specifically are you bored of? Asking out of curiosity but also selfishly, because I would love to work at those shops next and I would love to know the potential wall of boredom that lies ahead...
