it depends dude kung saan department ka ng advertising interested

there are 3 depts. sa ahensiya

sa media - dito it's either buyer ka o planner
sa creatives - dito ang matitinik sa industriya
kung di ka marunong maglay-out baka pwede kang sumulat
sa accounts - nandito yung magagandang tsikas sa ahensiya
if ur in accounts mabilis ang hiring, mabilis din ang turnover

this is one of those flexible fields, you'll be surprised that most
of the famous and established people in advertising are NOT even
advertising graduates in fact marami sa kanila undergrads

even tessie tomas started as a copywriter at mccann

the advertising industry's a rat race
usong-uso dito ang talangka mentality
the pay is not so rewarding but depende na yan sa ahensiya

kung try-out ka lang why not start with a small agency and work your way up?

Need your advice advertising dudes/chicks....

I've been trying to break into this industry for a long time now, i've been stuck in a job i don't really care about for such a long time, but i feel advertising is where i want to be.  I graduated with a degree from such an unrelated subject (human resources), and i'm thinking that maybe this is what is holding me back.

Any tips for me on how to break into the wild and wooly world of advertising?  Kahit accounts lang, pano ko kayo pasukin yon?  Kahit below the line, kahit ano....

salamat

I was from the advertising field before I moved to the academe. As some members here have posted, advertising is a dog-eat-dog world and a hellhole filled with people with talangka mentality. You have to have guts, the right personality, the creative talent and sometimes good looks to be able to succeed in this field.

Having guts mean selling yourself the way you haven't sold yourself before and being bought over the other graduates who have sold themselves as well. Practice selling yourself in front of the mirror. Have a good friend to criticize how well or bad you are in doing it.

The right personality involves charm, fluency in English and the abillity to communicate and hold an audience that won't doze off in front of you. Be aware though that this so-called right personality can balloon into a "monster personality" when you find yourself stealing other people's ideas and passing off these ideas as yours.

Creative talent means more than a good grasp of the English grammar. Wit, humor, originality, awareness of social, economic and political issues plus a lateral sense of thinking can help catapult your career.

These are all general comments for now. Let me get in a mood for some specifics next time.

So that's why I've become vain ever since I got into the business more than 10 years ago.

I almost killed someone for stealing my idea. If you remember that shampoo/conditioner commercial tagline "The shortest distnace between two points is a line."

I'm an engineering student. I hear that line almost EVERY FREAKING DAY of my college life. After college, I joined (more like co-founded) a comicbook creator's group, and in one of the meeting, I mentioned the concept, and the tagline. A few months later, the commercial was on air.

That's why I NEVER wanted to be an advertising monster. (I went freelnace and stayed with direct-marketing and below the line where there is less politics, no dog eating my pants, and no one stealing my ideas).

Here's hoping he's not someone I know from Alamat group. :grr: I should've been there to help you hunt down that intellectual robber (read: plagiarist) by tickling to him to death if he couldn't come up with his version of even the most simple but original alliteration. Hmm ... that idea-stealer would be more at home in the fake diploma mills of Recto. :evil:

That's why I NEVER wanted to be an advertising monster.  (I went freelance and stayed with direct-marketing and below the line where there is less politics, no dog eating my pants, and no one stealing my ideas).


And that's why I went to the academe. To teach and hopefully prevent future advertising guys and gals not to be "advertising monsters."

I had a stint at another agency (involved in direct marketing as well) but I couldn't convince myself to like and believe in any of the saleskits and print ads (now known as junk mail/spam) that I was creating. I also wanted to keep my morals ... or what's left of it to keep. Ahihihi. :D

Ah, as you may well know MuffMeister, I have those, but as I mentioned, I value my own ideas too much to the point of lethargy.


Naaah. You'll never be lethargic. I'll always be here kick you to jumpstart you. Ahihihi. :D

I for one am one of those that got burned out by advertising. I'm not trying to scare anyone who wants to get into the industry. In fact, I want to give hope and fan the flames.

I graduated with a degree in literature. No advertising units. No advertising background. But I also felt that I belonged in advertising. I tried everywhere then finally managed to break in with a small agency...as an accounts person, even if I wanted to be in creatives. Earned my stripes there. Learned the tricks of the trade. Then transferred to Lintas (now Lowe Worldwide). After some time in accounts there, someone saw some potential in me and made me a creative. After a few years, I got burned out.

So I left advertising. Went out and tried freelancing and even managed a stint as a Dj for a top FM station.

Then I realized I missed advertising. Now I'm back. And I'm currently at work...have been in the office for the past 30 hours.

Still want to be in advertising? :thumbsupsmiley:

dude...why do you want to get into advertising? second, do you have what it takes? i know lots of people who have crashed and burned in this biz, but there are those who truly have what it takes. its no walk in the park. i myself couldnt cut it, so i went freelance and started my own company and got a team of cut throats to do the deed.

so if you think you got it pm me

ps: visit my company's website www.eventstarinc.ws

It doesnt mean that if its BTL its easier than the ATL - Usually you have a campaign w/c is implimentable in 1 month ans sustainable to a year. To be blunt and candid.. This is not an Easy Job. Its Mentally draining and Even my relationship suffered. Take from me. The Managing director of IMAGINACTIVE CONCEPTS

Question: is the hiring process really slow in agencies? I went for an exam 3 weeks ago. they said they'd update me on the developments. No word yet though.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Yes, it can take very long. That is why you have to apply in as many agencies as you can. Don't depend on just one. When you take one exam, forget about it and move on to the next.

If you were rejected, they will not inform you. You have to take the initiative and politely follow up your application with them once a week.

Expect the worst, and hope for the best. Good luck.

Hi there.

Two traits you will need in the advertising field are SELF-RELIANCE and RESOURCEFULNESS. It's good that you are asking for help, but you shouldn't expect much help from anyone. But here's my P1.01 worth of advice based on what you wrote:

- YOU have to go through the Yellow Pages and get the agencies' addresses and numbers YOURSELF. Practically NO ONE will help you with this. Learn to do things for and by yourself.

- Call each agency you like and get pertinent info, especially the name of their Human Resources person. Address your application to the HRD by name, and not "To whom it may concern."

- Apply in as many agencies as you physically can. You will be lucky if you get hired by 1 out of 25 agencies.

- Try the classified ads, but agencies very rarely place ads there.

- Prepare yourself by reading books on Resume Making and Job Interview Skills. Can't afford the books at National Bookstore? Then go to National and discreetly read any open books there! It's not as if they can stop you. Like I said, "RESOURCEFULNESS".

It's a rough, ROUGH world in advertising. But don't ever allow anyone to discourage you from your dream. If you have to encourage yourself, so be it. Good luck.

yes there may be a lot of pretty ladies and some perks attached to advertising but
the advertising industry isnt as glamourous and prestiguos as you may think it is.

think twice before going in to it. if your still young by all means go for it. youd learn a lot from advertising. and if eventually you feel that its not for you than atleast you are still at the age where you can explore other industries.

i havnt really worked in an agency but ive experienced working with almost all major agencies in manila. believe me its a zoo.

I'm a fresh grad with a degree in I.T. specializing in Digital Arts. With my course, I had plenty of experiences in Film Production. My forte was pre-production and story boarding. Now I'm trying to get into any Advertising company because I am very creative and my creativity will be put to good use if I was to sell a certain product.

So pls, I need help on the following:
1.) Which ad agency should I apply?
2.) What else do I need to do to get in that company?
3.) Do you have any contacts?
