After college I spent 2 years working in frustrating Advertising/Marketing jobs that were stressful and did not pay well. Now I work in an unrelated office job that pays well, is quite a bit less stressful and is in a great location. The job is not going to get me anywhere, but I was so unhappy in the other jobs, I would draft letters of resignation to cheer myself up. I guess I am using this time to figure out what the hell I want to do. I have a degree, and I'm very creative, but it's competitive and cutthroat, and I'm not up to it. Does this make my life wasteful?
I'm a sixteen year old male living in the UK,
I don't have any real idea of what job I want when I'm older,
but I think the advertising/marketing/fashion industry sounds quite 'me'.
I'm really struggling here
I'm interested in the field of art and I see that many places offer graphic designer jobs.
I've also heard that some graphic design careers allow you to illustrate things by hand.
Is this true? If I like to draw characters, and other random things, by hand, is a graphic design job a good way to go?
Are there any advertising/marketing jobs that need people who have a creative illustrating ability? If there is, what is this type of career called?
I would like to create a business that would result in creating jobs for so many unemployed people around the area. My background is in food service, advertising, marketing and sales so I’m not really sure what sort of business I could start that would require more than just a few low paid employees.

Is it look upon as good? Is it hard? Fun? Will it help you in the future for finding jobs? I know I want to go into advertising/marketing but I am not quite sure what section I want to go into? What are some schools that have advertising programs that are looked upon with high regard?
Hi there. So I'm currently a PR major and expect to either get a MBA in advertising & Marketing or a JD law degree within the next 5-6 years. Are there any websites that forecast accurate or semi-accurate information concerning job growth/opportunities within the next 5-10yrs. I've read information that many lawyers are losing jobs at the moment, but hope to see improvement by the time I finish grad school. Thank you!

Is there a fee to pay in my case, and if there is how much are we talking about?

I've been trying to find a career in advertising/marketing for a little while now. I always include a cover letter, to stand out a bit. Usually what I do, is have a "base" cover letter, but I change the contents of the paragraph to suit the position.
For example I applied to a position with this description and requirements:
The Account Coordinator plays a key role in the day-to-day client communication, planning and execution for a portfolio of Accordant Media’s advertising clients. In this capacity the Account Coordinator aids in development of client-facing documents and communications, helps design and implement campaigns, and facilitates communication between client and internal Accordant Media teams. The Account Coordinator will work closely with Accordant’s Analytics, Optimization and Technology teams, as well as the core Client Services group, gaining exposure to every facet of the real-time media practice.
Specific Responsibilities and Activities:
Contribute to day to day client communication and translate client objectives into campaign strategy
Develop client-facing materials highlighting the execution and performance of Accordant programs
Interface with client contacts to provide updates and insights on campaign performance
Work with Optimization and Analytics teams to devise tactical strategies and drive campaign performance
Desired Skills & Experience
BS / BA degree.
1-2 years professional experience. Experience in media, research, advertising or financial services field preferred.
Knowledge of the online media business and underlying technology and research
Strong analytical skills: must be comfortable with MS Excel and Powerpoint, data analysis, and internet technologies
Effective time management skills – ability to prioritize and meet deadlines
Must be self-motivated and able to take the initiative to get the job done
Excellent listening, presentation, written and verbal communication skills
Comfortable working in a fast-paced, demanding, and fun entrepreneurial environment
Ability to travel as required"
To which I replied with my resume, and this cover letter (name and phone number omitted)
I am responding in regard to the Account Coordinator position posted on LinkedIn.
I feel that I am right for this position because of my experience, my skill list, and my personality. Primarily, I have over 8 years of experience in selling, up-selling, negotiating and managing. This means I’ve developed excellent communication skills and can juggle multiple projects at once. One of the most important things my background in management has taught me, is that results are essential. This has made me a very metric oriented person, and makes me always quantify what I do.
In addition, my resume details that I started as a Marketing Intern at a Hispanic theater company called -------------. I took this internship, because I wanted to differentiate my experience to cater more to an advertising oriented career. My initial responsibilities were to edit and create ads. But I’ve always been the type to go above and beyond my responsibilities and do more. It ended up being a success for me, because they noticed my work ethic and an unpaid internship that was supposed to last three months, transformed into a freelance Communication Design position where I would do so much more.
I feel that a combination of being a manager and a freelance communication designer makes me the ideal candidate for this position. Being manager means I know how to talk to the team and to the client and my experience in design shows that I know how to craft a message that will be receptive to my audience.
I’m excited to talk about the Account Coordinator position and talk about what I can offer you and your organization in person. You may contact me at any time at -----, or email me at ------@gmail.com.
Thank you for your time!
What I try to do is kind of craft a story as to who I am and why I would be beneficial to them. I wouldn't want to make it completely boring which is why i chose this method. Also I know about the point of an "action close" cover letter but i'm not too fond of it. Otherwise, ANY feedback would be much appreciated and thank you for reading this.
I am a junior in college. I am wondering if this combination of education sounds promising? Also, what kind of marketing jobs would I be eligible for? Thanks!
How are the majors such as advertising and marketing communications, and fashion merchandising management at FIT, seeing that is is more well known for their fashion design program. How are the job possibilities after graduation from FIT with a bachelors in one of those two majors?
Thanks for any help that can be given!!
I am desperately trying to work from home so I can be a mother to my kids. I have lots of experience in sales, advertising, marketing, computer/internet work, etc. Just something on the computer would be great. I am not looking for one of those programs where you pay money to be an indepedent rep. I tried a few of those already and frankly I have wasted my money. I need something that I can do day or night from home, that does not require me to pay a start up fee or deposit. Can anyone please help ? Thanks to all who respond.
