Will starting at a pharma centered agency hinder my chances of being able to land a solid job in a good creative shop? Seems like no creative shops are hiring Jr. AD’s right now...

I’d rather hire a good, agency-experienced pharma junior than an intern that’s holding out for the perfect job

Senior copywriter. Totally understand. Just giving my POV because OP asked if it can be a career hinderance in getting a job at a creative shop and my honest answer (as a CD at a creative shop) is yes.

Yes. Speaking from personal experience. No one will hire you at a non-pharma agency if you start in a pharma agency

Don’t get into pharma. It was the first job offered to me out of college and I’ve been doing it ever since. :/

At some point we might get leadership in this country who realize like the rest of the world that consumer pharma advertising is unethical and should be against the law. Then you’ll be stuck in an extinct field or battling for health care professional advertising work with the rest of the folks who work in consumer pharma
