The kids are alright


Last week a dozen young hopefuls graduated from the Melbourne arm of the ADMA creative school.

Next month an entire class of advertising students will be graduating from RMIT in Melbourne.

And only a few weeks ago another group of creative wannabes graduated from the very highly regarded AWARD School.

All up I'd imagine that's over 100 young people looking to get into the creative department of an agency in Melbourne.

Over 100!

That's a lot of people for only a handful of opportunities.

One of the best ways to steel yourself for the struggles and frustration of getting a job is to share your struggles and frustration with other people.

And the best place to do that is Junior.

It's a terrific resource set up by two lads that I mentor - Ed and Tait.

If you're looking to make a career for yourself as a creative go check out their site and register.

It just launched this week, so it's early days, but they're going to have regular interviews with interesting industry figures.

They'll also be hosting regular networking events with inspirational speakers.

But don't just take my word for it. Click here and go be a part of it.
