It’s Spring. The birds will soon be chirping, the flowers blooming and the college grads descending like locusts on every marketing agency, marketing department and media outlet. They all want one thing — their first real job.
I remember how scary it was. 20+ years later, I shake my head at the mistakes the grads make while trying to vie for my attention. So I decided we (yes WE) could give them a gift that will put that digital camera to shame. We can help them get that job.
Here’s how you can help:
~ Post your answer to one (or more) of the following in the comments section:
- How I landed my first job (war/success story)
- What I wish I knew when I was trying to get my first job
- My advice for someone trying to break into the marketing/advertising business
- Words of wisdom about careers in general
~ Point to this post on your blog and encourage your readers to come over and add their 2 cents so we can gather even more answers and advice.
We’ll gather up all the comments, thoughts and stories and create an e-book for the grads to download and study. Who knows — maybe we’ll get some great employees out of the deal as well!
Come on — someone helped you once upon a time. Time to return the favor.
