3. When applying for a job in an agency, make sure your portfolio is


a) ACCESSIBLE. I don’t want to follow a billion links just to see mediocre work, it’s only worth it if you’re spectacular.


b) CATEGORIZED - How do I know what is a poster, what is a print ad or what is just random photo editing if you have everything botched up into one album with no description, no client info, no brief overview?


4. If you’re past the first step of the interview process and you’ve been called for a trial. Please come alone and not with a parent. It’s not professional and makes me wonder if you are cut out for the job


5. ASK me questions to understand my company better


6. Let me see your unique personality


7. Do NOT be afraid to voice your mind. No one likes sheep


8. When entering a job for the first time, assume everything you already know from books is useless. There is nothing like first hand experience even if you have a quadruple masters in everything.


I’d love to change the perception of young professionals of Pakistan, however, most of them I’ve met, make it really really hard.
