Investment banking, Energy, Management consulting, Software development, Broadcasting… I’ve worked in all these industries and more. Always in research. My current stint is the longest I’ve been in a single industry – Advertising.
I can’t believe I’ve stuck this out for so long, but it’s just so darn fun. If you work in advertising, forget the doomladen bullshit about it being a declining industry, ‘cos the same paranoia exists in every industry except prostitution, and advertising has been around just as long. My tip is: keep up with technology and read the papers. Today’s schoolkids will be working for companies that don’t exist yet.
