Years of digital & traditional experience at places like BBDO, Ogilvy, JWT, etc. Small shop interviewer doubted my ability to do email campaigns or print brochures because they aren’t in my book.🤦‍♂️

Don’t really want to work there, but the $$$ would have been really good, so I gave it a shot. I just noticed that these smalltime shops will always stay smalltime, because they’re going to wind up hiring someone who has a bunch of emails and brochures in their “creative portfolio.”

Wasn’t the right fit for you. You will end up better and stronger. The right place will be lucky to have you. Cheers!

Some people are so literal. I don’t know if you’d want to work for a shop or under a “leader” like that. I’m going through this at the moment, but some details are reversed. I’m wanting to get out of the small agencies to work somewhere bigger and with more resources to do better work. I’m asked why there’s not more digital in my book and it’s because a lot of our digital clients are awful. It’s sort of a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” scenario. You put average email campaigns in your book and you get docked for not being creative or edgy enough. You don’t put them and there’s that hesitancy of “You can create a website for a Fortune 500 company or create this amazing Cannes campaign... but can you design an image for social or lay out a tri-fold brochure? 😰"

10yrs approx production experience & was passed over for a gig since I didn’t have lipstick on my reel. Um, I know beauty is a bit different but think I can handle pretty girls with budget for several makeup & wardrobe assistants.

I mean, replace “ability” in that sentence with “eagerness” and I think they might have had a point...

They prefaced the topic by mentioning that emails were “boring” and “unsexy” (not my words).
