Don’t be nervous! Just be yourself, have fun, and be open to EVERYTHING. No attitude! Be willing to work on anything.

How did you go about becoming a copywriter and What was it like when you were just starting out and looking for jobs in the industry? What did you do to help you stand out in an application or interview? I think of myself as a creative and I think I could become a copywriter but I have been unsuccessful in getting a job in the advertising industry. I have applied to many roles for a graduate but haven't had a positive response, some help

Hi, I am well.

I’ve said this before, but it’s like putting your bare butt on a freshly baked sheet cake.

I went to portfolio school and it was good, easier than school actually.

I knew the right people.

If you want to be a copywriter with no experience or training you might look into portfolio school as well.

I feel your pain, @RauliuxRaulix.

Can you explain it a little more? What about it is confusing to you? If you want to be a designer, then a much better avenue of schooling for you would be graphic design.

Do you have other options? Is it really that bad? Would this CW say you’re the reason for his headache?
