Advertising- in search of answers

Posted in Interest, Life, Work by thisisanexperiment on June 16, 2009

I’ve been thinking alot about where a Major in Marketing can take me, and I’m wondering if something in Advertising would be more up my alley.

My problem is that I’m not too informed about a Career in Advertising.

So I know there’s Saatchi & Saatchi, and Ogilvy.

“Saatchi & Saatchi is a global advertising agency. It was listed on the London Stock Exchange and was once a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index but in 2000 it was acquired by Publicis which is headquartered in Paris.”

“Ogilvy & Mather is an international advertising, marketing, and public relations agency based in New York City and owned by the WPP Group. The company operates 497 offices in 125 countries around the world and employs approximately 16,000 professionals.

Ogilvy & Mather has seven divisions: (CRM and interactive), OgilvyInteractive (interactive; under OgilvyOne), Neo@Ogilvy (digital and direct media; under OgilvyOne), Ogilvy PR (public relations), Ogilvy Healthworld (health care communications and marketing), and OgilvyAction (consumer promotion and experiential marketing).”

But what exactly goes on?

A little bit Clueless and in need of answers.

Neo@Ogilvy and OgilvyAction sound pretty interesting to me.


I’ve been browsing the Ogilvy website. Awesome. I want to work/intern there!

If it’s as dynamic and creative as it makes itself out to be, that’s one helluva place.

What I do know, is that advertising is crazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzy

I want to work in a team.

I want to Create.
