Okay... I'm aware this isn't the ideal platform to ask this question, but I figure you ladies are so smart about everything else, that it doesn't hurt to ask!
So, I love, love, love
advertsing, marketing, design, photography... all of it. I also want to be in management someday. So I'm going to school full time for all this (Bus Mgmt, Advertising, Marketing) but I'm only a year in and it'll take me at least 4 more years for finish - not including the master's I'm after (I work full time). The thought of waiting four+ years kills me! I've finally figured out what I want to do with my life and I'm ready to get going!
For a long time I've thought about someone in the industry to taking me under their wing and teaching me... showing me the ropes while I continue going to school. See, I figure this person would have a perfectly molded employee to fill in when they're gone or pass busy work off to. Maybe a business owner who wants someone they trust to *one day* run the majority of their business. Where do I look for something/someone like this? I've been scouring the classifieds and craigslist for months and found nothing. I've sent my resume to marketing firms with no response. I don't know how to get my foot in the door. I know once I get a shot, I'll do very well. I don't know where to begin. Any ideas? If you're in the industry, where did you start?
