History of Advertising

The job market and career advancement in the advertising industry can be quite tough. Though you may get an entry level job with ease but only certain extraordinary individual talents will guarantee career growth. The redeeming feature is the pay packets get heavier as you climb to the top. Even a junior person like a Desktop Publisher can expect a fancy salary if he delivers quality work.

Some of the frontline Advertising Companies in India are - Ogilvy and Mather, J Walter Thompson India, Mudra Communication Pvt. Ltd, FCB-Ulka Advertising Ltd, Rediffusion-DY&R, McCann-Erickson India Ltd, RK Swamy/BBDO Advertising Ltd, Grey Worldwide (I) Pvt. Ltd, Leo Burnett India Pvt. Ltd and Contract Advertising India Ltd. There are a host of other companies that are medium sized and less known.

Though India is a huge country with one billion population, advertisers in India are able to reach 75 percent of the population, using television radio, newspapers, magazines and billboards to create awareness about various products / services.

Though the advertising industry may demand a wide assortment of educational backgrounds, most of the employers favor candidates with a broad liberal arts background plus experience in related occupations. A bachelor's degree in sociology, psychology, literature, journalism, or philosophy, among other subjects, is more acceptable to the employers.

For management positions in advertising, some recruiters also look for a postgraduate degree in advertising, mass communication, public relations or journalism. Whatever the course of study, it should include marketing, consumer behavior, market research, sales, communication skills, and visual arts.

Many successful people have started their career in advertising in a modest way by taking a junior job in an ad agency and working their way up. The best thing is to get into the industry somehow and gather hands-on experience. If you are unable to move up within that particular ad agency you join, you can still use that experience to get you a better job in some other agency.

Please remember that most ad agencies are eager to appoint interns who can develop into potential employees. If you get one such opportunity to intern, you should accept it immediately and plan your career there from. Even in this day and age of fast-paced business activity, employers of ad agencies are excited to see someone with genuine passion and enthusiasm for the profession and willing to provide them job opportunities.
