An unemployed interviewee’s journey 3 :
By Admin H : What is an advertising degree?! Once you send your CV, if you get a call back, they will ask you first to do sales, if you think you are over qualified, they will offer you client servicing! If your head is over the clouds and you think that you have the creativity that it takes, they’ll switch the direction into graphic or web design. Now looking at all these, I’m thinking that by the age of 40, my boss would’ve understand what my degree qualifies me to do and I might finally get a job related to my major!
So in conclusion if each qualified person was doing another one’s duty, we’ll end up having a very low quality range of visual work just like the majority of the work done in Lebanon.
So being desperate, you start thinking of launching your own business; here’s the almighty manual:
How to start a costless design business ?
We should all give credit to those great minds building companies around interns’ hard work and effort. They take all the credit for their creativity and talent, drain their minds and destroy their ambitions. Thumbs up for these agencies that actually make you think that they are doing you a big favor and giving you a once in a lifetime chance of interning for 3 months at their company before even considering giving you a job offer which you’d never see. But yes, you’ll benefit a lot when you accomplish every single task at their offices, and kill your creativity with their twisted minds that still believe that a good visual is the one with a billion Photoshop layers mixed with some brushes and vectors, and the perfect copywriting is the cheesiest one with some sexual hints!
So, after all the above, I can only wish you a good luck, or some 6 packs (a mini skirt is becoming old fashioned) that can guarantee a position there … it’s either luck, or steroids. And you decide.
