"I currently work for the J. Walter Thompson advertising agency in New York City. My job is to manage one of the accounts that the agency has by making sure everyone on our team is producing great work, that the client is happy and that we are, of course, making money. On any given day I am reviewing or presenting creative work (TV ads, print ads, websites, collateral efforts) to our client, watching focus groups, dealing with any day to day issues that pop up and planning strategic and creative initiatives and budgets for the next year to come. Advertising is an intense, fun and evolving field that tends to draw energetic and smart people from various educational and professional backgrounds. It's an excellent field to start off in and grow into or use to gain experience and evolve toward other creative professions."
