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.
