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.

Self-important bit

I’m Victor Houghton, a, er... something or other in one of the UK’s largest advertising agencies. My job title has a comma in it, which is embarrassing. I’m the chief finder-things-outer with a splash of trends who is lucky to work with all the major functions of the agency, even though I am most closely associated with strategic planning. Everything in this blog has most probably been stolen from other, infinitely more talented people, although the opinions are most definitely my own and not those of the agency.
