Is Advertising For You?

Are you absolutely, positively sure advertising is for you?

I love Toronto Portfolio Night's site that gives you a short quiz where you can see if you've got what it takes to be in advertising.

I try to tell y'all it's not all roses and champagne, it's a lot of hard work, late nights, failure and frustration. (See  Don't get a job in advertising, watch out for that bus,  The circle of rejection, dealing with death, I hate my partner, hard work doesn't always pay off and there's no crying in advertising.)

Don't get me wrong, I love advertising. (But I also love raw almonds, Bikram Yoga and, so I may not be the best lever to judge Love vs Hate.) But it is a lot of work and at times can make you want to jump into the Hudson (or pick your nearly scary gross river.)

Check out Absolutely Positively Sure and see whether you're better suited for a career elsewhere.
