Try to get in a department that is industry agnostic, like finance or analytics. In most entry level roles, they look for technical skills first and they'll teach you the industry later. Then you can move around internally if you are qualified.

Hello All. I have been in Support for 15 years and I would love to advance into a technical leadership role. I'm pretty open to any possibilities: Customer Success, PM, QA, etc The question is how?

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.
