An Open Letter to Young Female Creatives: You're in Demand, So Take Advantage of the Opportunity

An Open Letter to Young Female Creatives: You're in Demand, So Take Advantage of the Opportunity | Advertising, I say | Scoop.it

Karen Goldfarb Copywriter's insight:

Interesting perspective on being a female creative in the ad biz. I'd add another point. Don't "act like a girl," act like a professional. If you don't want to be treated like you're the cute, young thing, don't act the part. Don't flirt. Come to the table with ideas in hand, not your compact.
