Meet Up: It Takes All Kinds to Work in Advertising

Saturday, March 14
11:00AM - 12:00PM

JW Marriott
Room 508
110 E 2nd St

An agency's best talent doesn't have to come straight out of portfolio school. What leads people to work in advertising or marketing? How does a diverse professional background lend itself to intriguing work? What's it like to start working in a marketing/advertising agency after life on the client side, running a small business, or working in the nonprofit sector?

This is a meet-up for folks from "agency life" who led previous lives in other industries, to discuss creativity as vocation and compulsion. Especially inclusive of those new to the ad world whose egos have not yet been extensively massaged.
