Figure out the names of the business and admin people who don't have creative roles but have similar skills at an agency where you want to work, use linked in and tell them. Many times, companies pay for referrals, so they might be inclined to pass your name along with a good pitch for your case.

Look for associate producer roles, that’s where you’ll start. Get to know the landscape, be able to talk about advertising and branded content. Use networks to get in touch with recruiters at the agencies where you want to work. You’ll be cheap, so it shouldn’t be too tough to get in the door

Thank you for your help!

I applied for a role last year and after second round interview was told I was a good fit for the company but not a fit for the role. Now, a year later, I applied for same role and they called again, and to make sure, I reminded recruiter that we spoke last year. He seems to recall that. Should I expect different results? Have you ever been on opposite end and changed your mind about a candidate a year later?
