I’m trying to help a friend find an entry-level role in advertising/marketing/production. He has a degree in media and production and some experience doing content and social for a summer camp.

Looking for help finding a remote opportunity (because of Covid) to get his foot in the door. Anybody looking? Any advice on entry-level positions that aren’t financially prohibitive (requiring ad school or unpaid internships)? Any leads on opportunities?

So you’re gonna have to gather a few things.
One leg of arachnid
Seventeen livers of bat
The whisker hair of a stillborn mongoose
2 5-gallon Trash bags
LSD
Hatchet
Tarp

Meet me in 3 fortnights on the rising of the third strawberry moon under the Gowanus overpass. Bring goggles.....Tell no one.

You lost me at bat livers, but found me again at LSD.

But honestly, the reason I’m asking is because I already know this industry feels like it’s behind a lock and key. I managed to get in with a little help getting a meeting with someone who was willing to help me get an interview.

Just trying to pay it forward.

Does he have preference for department at all? Media planning could be a good way for him to get a foot in the door.

No preference for department. He’s kind of a social media kid, so I definitely thought media could be a decent place for him.

Any chance you might be willing to connect with me privately to help me get him connected?

I’m sure Vayner would hire them for free.

This is very helpful, thanks.

Also, VaynerMedia was the agency that took a chance on me. They didn’t care that I didn’t go to ad school.
