Trying to break into this crazy industry is rough. Add the fact that I don’t exactly live in a huge advertising market and it makes it that much tougher. Anyways, I have started thinking about Ad/Portfolio School. Many of the professionals that I have emailed have overwhelmingly recommended/suggested it.
- I’ll come out with a great portfolio – I know I have a lot of potential so some guidance could really lead me on the right path. I’ll also have time to spend making something great.
- Contacts – I’ll meet tons of people and have easier access to the best of the best. I really want to work internationally (most notably London or Amsterdam) at some point in the near future. I hear that Miami Ad School has an ‘international flavour’ and that might allow me better access to my dream of international work.
- The cost – These schools are not cheap. I could always take out more student loans.
- More time in school – When I graduated I was all excited to get out in the real world and actually do something. Another two years is school seems like a real pain – having shitty part-time jobs (like I do now) is equally disappointing.
So yeah, I don’t know what to do. I know only about 3 people read this blog but please share our opinion.
