Bring The Goods. Get Paid. Period.

According to Ad Age, pay isn’t yet under pressure at the agency management level.
But agencies might be tightening their hiring standards.

“People are looking for mature, aggressive, in-command personalities,” Sharon Spielman, managing director at recruitment firm Jerry Fields Associates, said. “I think when the economy suffers, they’re more concerned about stability and experienced management people who can command a presence automatically. It’s their safety net.”

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. After working for seven agencies in five states and freelancing for several more, I ventured out on my own in 2009. Today, as head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon, I'm focused on providing effective integrated marketing solutions to mid-market clients.
