I find the agency life keeps everyday different. I get to work with a variety of clients, with different personalities and different goals from their marketing strategies. I love helping them to grow and reach their goals. To graduates aspiring to work in the industry, I would firstly try and get any experience possible - as you never know where it may take you. And secondly, show people that you have a passion for not only marketing, but also people. It's key to understanding a business and people really appreciate enthusiasm, as well as knowledge.
