IPA launches careers website AdMISSION
AdMISSION features a guide to the industry and job profiles, along with advice on how to find and secure a job or work experience.
It also features interviews and tips from adlanders working across a range of disciplines. IPA member agencies can submit details of internships, graduate scheme and entry-level job opportunities to be listed on the site.
As part of the launch, AdMISSION is also merging with well-known graduate careers blog AdGrads. Popular posts from the AdGrads archives will be posted on AdMISSION and co-founder Will Humphrey will become a consultant editor on the new site. Humphrey, now a Senior Planner at M&C Saatchi / LIDA, set up the blog in 2007 to help provide a recent graduate’s point of view about how to get into advertising.
Says Rachel Wareing, Social Media Editor, IPA, “Our research shows that while advertising is still a very popular career choice for young people, there is a lack of understanding about the many different types of jobs on offer and what those roles entail. We aim to close that knowledge gap and help agencies reach and recruit a bright new generation of adlanders.”
Says Humphrey, “I’m delighted to be working with the IPA to help advise on engaging and attracting the next generation of adland superstars. Since co-founding AdGrads, it’s been great to see the IPA continue to improve the advice it offers to an ever-increasing number of young people. It’s vital that the next generation of talented ad grads are able to encourage the best and brightest to join the industry.”
