Someone else's great advice

Sometimes I come across advice to juniors written by other people and get sooooo jealous, wishing I was as brilliant to write it myself.

This gem on the Ad Buzz site, was written by Mat Zucker, Chief Creative Officer of OgilvyOne Worldwide. It's called "What I Wish Someone Had Told Me" and is capital B-Brilliant.

I have been hounding students about the art of the craft and Mat echos this in his point about typography. I urge students to be savvy and knowledgeable about current events and pop culture and Mat too prescribes this when he says know your content.

Have a read, it is some of the best advice out there for juniors.

While on the advice subject, thought I should ask for one. I sent an email to the person responsible for recruiting introducing myself and inquire about a job about 9 days ago. The reply of which said that they are currently assessing their staffing needs. Then I saw a post on their facebook page that they're now recruiting. I want to send the person another email. Would it be too pushy? Thanks!

I was just going through your Creative Career Management website and am very interested. Does your service offer some sort of guidance / step-by-step to finding a creative job?
