|Amusing Odds and Ends in Advertising
By: Len Kornblau
I am always amused when:
Kind of makes your day, doesn’t it?
Agencies claim they fired the client.
Clients claim they weren’t fired.
New CMOs rehire an old agency after a few months. (You know, The Fling!)
Agencies and clients insist there were philosophical differences.
Agencies and clients don’t interview neighborhood candidates. (Not really amused at all!)
Clients dole out assignments to other agencies that the AOR can handle just by hiring freelancers.
There is a Cannes Festival for advertising.
HR people can interpret a resume.
Hiring managers don’t read a resume before the interview.
