The more I breath in an advertising agency, the more I fall in love with my choice. To familiarize you further, here are..
9 reasons why an advertising agency is the coolest workplace ever
1. No dress code
“Who goes to office in chappals?”, story of my life. Oh yeah, every morning my parents have this peculiar look on their faces.
Miles away from the monotonous formals/uniform zone. Wear what you want to, as long as the work is rolling.
2. Not just other 9 – 5 job
My friends always regret asking me about one thing. ‘‘What time do you report at your office?”.. Ahh, I don’t know. 11ish or so. You are so lucky!
I must say, I do feel great every-time this happens. If you are into creative advertising, you are not paid for marking your 9-5 shifts. But… there is a BUT. You might get to come in late, but it doesn’t guarantee about what time you may leave. You might enter at 11 am, but you might go by 11 pm. Few weekends can go for a toss too! But at least we get to enjoy a little extra sleep comparatively.
3. Composed internal culture
Advertisements are influenced by different thoughts, ongoing trends and fresh ideas. So being a part of this industry, you will come across people with various social backgrounds and beliefs. Each one has a unique thought process. You get to meet crazy, creative and some very interesting people in here. Some might actually freak you out a bit, but you would always want to be amongst them.
4. Daily life helps your job
Doesn’t it sound great when you can start working on a brief with new crazy ideas. And even better because these ideas can just emerge from your daily life activities. All you need is to keep all your senses open to receive some brand new perspective and integrate it with your project. It could come from your hobby too. A book. Gym. Food. Driving. Walking. Sleeping. Shopping. Can pop up anytime, anywhere.
5. Work & Chill
Work is always great when you get to space it out. Working continuously to match with the deadlines, and just a 20 minute break? Not cool bro. Not cool.
In here while you are at work… you also get to listen to music, read a book, surf through the internet and also take a little nap in the middle. But you’ve gotta make sure that your work is spinning along with all the fun.
6. Everyday is unpredictable
Working in an agency brings uncertainty. Some days can be really chilled out and some can be extremely exhausting. You will never know what the day has for you in store. Some days could be really easy going and some days you will feel that you need more than 24 hours to complete your work.
With this career choice, you get a great benefit of receiving a lot of freelancing work. Earn some extra cash doing work at home. Take up some short term projects. In the end you are getting payed for your creativity. And your office is a great source to find contacts who can give you these assignments.
8. The cool office
Just not any other office with work stations, chair and glass walled cabins. Most of the advertising agencies I’ve seen, have really engaging interiors. You might stumble across some bean bags, lounge, colorful walls, funky posters and themed interiors! It makes the employees feel more energetic and involved. You would want to spend more time in the office, than at home.
9. Occasional party nights
Where at other workplaces, employees might define office dinners, an annual gathering as fun. In an advertising agency, you would see people shouting THIS CALLS FOR A PARTYY, with each project accomplished. Every Friday becomes a super Friday night. Some beers, friendly conversations and a perfect moment to socialize too.
The perks of working in an advertising agency is great indeed!
