Several AdScamers have responded and seem to agree with me that the AdAge article on Freelance is a load of shit. As many have pointed out, virtually no one gets the day rate you could five years ago, and when BDA’s hire, it’s snot nosed kids that can design “Angry Birds” on their fucking iToys and think ten dollars an hour is a fucking fortune. Anyway, as the big authority that AdAge’s, Rupal Parekh, quoted was Lisa Marie Ringus, a director at recruitment firm 24 Seven.” I checked them out… It would seem that “Marketing/Creative Services” is just a small part of their offerings. They also do Fashion – Retail – Beauty – Home Furnishing – and – Action Sports. Yes fucking Action Sports! Apparently, their recruiters have insider knowledge of board-sports and the surf/skate culture. Hey dude, that’s bitchin’ gnarly! If they can’t get you an ECD’s job at CP+B, they might get you in at Bombora Surf Heaven as an assistant board waxer! Holy shit, every time I open AdAge, my never ceasing contention that the ad biz is now well and truly fucked… Is reinforced.
Our Action-Sport recruiters will also advise you on your interview wardrobe and hair styling!
