The Kids Are Alright
I taught this week at University of Illinois with Professor of Advertising (and Jesus of Cool) Peter Sheldon and a bunch of funny, smart, refreshingly unjaded, worried-about-finding-a-job students. I understand the worry. But with the ideas they had, and the unending avenues available now for expression of those ideas, it occurred to me that there’s never been a better time to enter this industry. Never. There are more ways to advertise to people than anyone can keep up with. If you have ideas, it’s like a candy store, and the best part is, nobody really knows enough to organize the merchandise.
You may not realize it, but you are lucky ducks.
