Amusing Odds and Ends in Advertising

I am always amused when:
  • 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.
Kind of makes your day, doesn’t it?
