I wonder if the editors of advertising publications ever look around at other industry magazines and wonder why they aren’t constantly predicting the end of their business.

Maybe because other businesses are run like businesses — and by people with more scruples and principles than the inept lizards that seem to find their way to the top in adland.

Ads won’t end. Holding companies, maybe. But people always want to know about things and want to know about them in a way that makes them feel special, understood, appreciated. All this pseudo-strategy BS that agencies are selling right now will likely cycle out and we’ll hopefully get back to making stories about things for the people that may want them. Ah, optimism (blind though it may be).

The world runs on ads.

OP - you make an important and irony-rich point. Clearly the ad reporters , like theater critics, like to assume the mantle of “could do this better” even though few of ‘em probably could. Stuart Elliott was relentlessly smart—but most are self-appointed and anointed. Teddy Roosevelt wrote a great ode about the difference between the person willing to step into the arena and those who merely observe. You point this out with the added zinger that they go further than commenting on the work to opine on the future of an industry with only 2nd hand knowledge.

*Question about writing resumes in the Ad world*

For context, I didn’t go to portfolio school.

In my career I’ve relied on the general advice we all get from high school or undergrad to write my resume. While peeking at other Copywriter portfolios I noticed a lot of resumes basically just list their previous shops, titles, brands and tenure. I was never sure if this resume format was just for their portfolios or if they actually apply to jobs this way.

How do you format your resumes?
