Be fearless

How do you stand out when you're after a job in advertising? Well, Jade Delaney took standing out to a very literal level.

After the mega idea from Mccann NYC in 2017, Jade decided to recreate the stunt outside Mccann Bristol in the hope of securing a job.

On Tuesday she took the bull by the horns and dressed up as the pint-sized wonder before dropping the MD a note of her plans.

And you'll be pleased to know... it worked! She picked up a month's paid placement starting next week.

We've all been there, and know the first opportunity is always the hardest to get – especially when you're competing against hundreds/thousands of others for the same role.

So you have to think different.

We tell people to get out there and pound the streets, knock on doors and never give up. But sometimes standing tall outside the right door for hours is just as good.

Be fearless and chase your dreams.

#BigBookCrit Top Tips

Last night I was a critter at the DMA / IDMGraeme Robertson Trust Big Book Crit in London. There are a few more happening in Manchester, Norwich, Edinburgh and Bristol TOMORROW. So if you’re reading this and haven’t registered, head here.

We had 15 minute crits with student/grad teams – which isn’t a lot for someone like me who waffles on – but it did throw up a few thoughts that I thought might be good if you attend something similar in the future. *Cough* a bit like our R/GA Speed Dating in a couple of weeks.

Here are a few ideas to get the most out of your quick-fire crits.
