Sallie Mars shares advice on breaking into advertising with The Drum
With graduation season approaching and new creatives setting forth on the job search, Sallie Mars, SVP Global Director of Creative Talent, spoke with The Drum about what she looks for in junior creative talent. She spoke about how important it is to put together a professional portfolio, how to get noticed and why self-confidence is important.
“Agencies want to hire interesting people, so if you hand craft bikes or write music in your spare time, we want to know about that too.”
“When applying, plumb the depths of why you are creative and want to work in a creative industry and the story will write itself.”
“Remember confidence is contagious but don’t get confidence confused with arrogance. Confidence will help you sell your idea internally and, eventually, to clients.”
