Creatives

So here it goes. I graduated this past May from a traditional University that had a creative ad program. I have a decent book, but not at the level I want it be. I started a role 2 months ago at CONT

If i were you, save every dollar you can. Apply to Creative Circus and VCU (the deadline May have passed unfortunately). Go to Circus or VCU starting next fall. That should give you enough time save some cash and give yourself a cushion. Your most likely still on your parents’ insurance, so that’s a plus. Look into student loans and make sure it’s worth It for you - It may not be... but if i had to do It all over again that’s the route i would have gone. Instead, i worked in-house in digital marketing while taking night classes. Never made It to an agency but I’m blessed to work at a great in-house agency doing real conceptual work now...but It wasn’t easy.

@OP - my designer coworker went to Miami MAS and said It sucked. They’re the most talented designer I’ve ever worked with, but you’ll leave CC and VCU with a job if you work hard enough. At MAS, you’ll leave with some ideas for apps and rinsed and repeated concepts.

a consultancy type agency on a digital marketing team. My role is a hybrid between copywriter and account coordinator.. but its mostly account. Also, the writing is all social media captions basically. I wanna be in the ad industry and do great work. I don't want to be a hybrid but to the junior roles I apply to I don't hear back from... also where I live the ad scene is very limited. Struggling with thoughts of quitting, of what to do to get to where I want to be.. Portfolio school? Which one? Stay at this job and get a creative output even if its like 10% of what I do ? A lot on my mind, anyone have any advice ??

2nd year Big 4 consultant interviewing for a 2 year analyst program at a private investment/private equity firm. Role at first will be split 40-40-20 between Operations, Investor Relations, and Investment Team. Being marketed to be as a "rotation" Good exit? Don't want to take PE for the sake of PE, I want it to have legitimately transferable skills in modeling, valuation, investment with MBA almost certain after 2 years. Concerned I'd get "stuck" on portfolio monitoring

After 3 years of dealing with the worst firm I've ever had the displeasure of working for, I finally landed my dream gig at a small specialty firm. The people at the new firm are all SMEs featured in and contributors to the most notable business publications in the world, less than 100 employees, better benefits, unlimimted PTO, doubled my pay and landed a senior role. Keep looking for what you want and deserve. I'm happy to be forging a better path away from what I've had to endure.
