Since when has being curious killed anyone?
Okay, maybe it got a cat or two but your chances are good.
In my industry it pays to be curious.
To work in advertising you have to be invested, interested, and above all: curious.
So grab your shovel, it’s time to dig deep!
What do you love?
How much do you really know about things?
What else could you learn about this subject?
How it this subject connected to other things?
The more curious you are, the more you will eventually know.
We all have interests, passions, and hobbies but how did you become interested in those things in the first place?
Chances are, your curiosity led you there.
The world is constantly in flux, therefore so is the information that is out there. This presents us with a tremendous opportunity for learning.
In the adverting industry, the more you know, the more valuable you become.
Researching stats on other companies, dabbling in new technologies, glancing at the latest Twitter trends, and even reading the daily paper could provide you with some valuable information.
So look up from that comfy cubicle of yours and poke around a bit, learn something new.
