Early in November we had the honour of a visit from Pete and Ollie (Pollie Wanna Create), 2010 graduates. You'll remember these guys landing their first job via twitter! They currently work at Archibald Ingall Streeton (AIS).
They ran a session with Third Years to give them a taste of their first year in adland as well as setting a really exciting challenge. Here's what current Third Year Maria had to say:
"It’s always nice to see how well Lincoln graduates are getting on, and Pete and Ollie’s visit this week was a perfect chance for us to meet a successful team of Lincoln-bred creatives! They talked us through their work, gave us tips on standing out in interviews, networking, and how to turn a placement into a job. There was even an ‘invention’ exercise that offered 6 placements at AIS for the winners, just to up our game.It was really helpful to be able to ask them all those questions we had about ‘life as a new creative, looking for a job’, but also to see how enthusiastic and positive they were about the industry and their work. It makes the prospect of being young advertising professionals, a little less scary."
Thanks Maria and, of course, thanks to Pete and Ollie for such an energetic and genuinely useful afternoon!
