We thought these guides, composed by the Guardian, about how to get into Media and the Advertising industries would be a worth while feature for you. Both are rumoured to require well heeled connections and “back door” entries. However these two guides dispel such myths and advise those who are seeking opportunities in advertising and or media to use and abuse social media platforms such as YouTube and Twitter to their advantage.
These guides are quite brief but they do hammer home the necessity of taking on all manner of work experience and the importance of broadening one’s interests and experiences. They are very real guides, in that they ask industry insiders, as well as university graduates and degree directors, what it takes to get into the industry and how to remain relevant.
