Is an advertising degree right for me?
If you’re on the fence about whether or not an advertising course is a right fit for you, you should consider the following factors:
If you like to write or design, you can work for a major ad agency or small ad agency’s creative department, in-house or as a freelancer to come up with exciting ideas for the next campaign.
If your answer to this question is “no,” rest assured that plenty of other advertising roles are available that don’t involve ad creation. From account executives to media coordinators, researchers and more, there’s something for everyone in the advertising world.
- Can you cope in a high-pressure environment?
There’s no greater feeling than pulling off a successful ad campaign. But to do so, you must manage your time effectively to deliver under tight deadlines.
- Can you handle criticism well?
Before your campaign is released, it will be reviewed by your colleagues and undergo many changes before final approval. You should be receptive to feedback to excel in this industry.
