IPG Mediabrands

Graduate Media Planner, Planning at IPG Mediabrands

Application Advice: I would advise candidates to thoroughly research the industry and role, specifically the day-to-day tasks the role will require. It is important to know why you want to work in media and why you believe you will be suited to the role itself. For instance, organisational skills are really important as well as adaptability and an eagerness to learn. My agency in particular (UM) prides itself on a curiosity culture, so I would encourage any applicants to demonstrate how they are 'curious' in their day to day lives.

Interview Advice: - Think about how your strengths as an individual will fit into a media environment. For instance are you always first to know about new technology/do you have strong presentation skills and a competitive nature which will help in agency pitches? - Try

IPG Mediabrands

Account Executive, Initiative at IPG Mediabrands

Application Advice: The theme is "Get Yourself Noticed" so you have got to think outside the box, if you're really passionate about media and advertising then thinking of yourself as a concept, a service or a product that you're trying to sell will help you consider ways you can impress the HR team. They are real people too (I only realised that at the assessment centre!) so make it enjoyable for them to review your application.

Interview Advice: Review some campaigns you like and you don't like! Reading Campaign magazine and Marketing Week will help put you in the right frame of mind as well as reafirm that you really want the job!
